Billy Connolly- The Big Yin

Scottish stand up comedian Billy Connolly is also known, especially in his native Scotland, as “The Big Yin” (The Big One). But where did this name came from? The story of the stand up comedian’s nickname goes back to his childhood days when people had to differentiate between him and his father.

Because Connolly’s father was a big strong man, everyone called him “Big Billy” and the soon to be stand up comedian got the name “Wee Billy”. After a while “Wee Billy” grew up and became bigger than “Big Billy” himself, so his nickname would no longer apply because everyone got confused. It was only a matter of time until stand up comedian Billy Connolly received his today famous nickname “The Big Yin”.
