About the author

Billy started writing poetry around 1992 when he was trying to be a Rock Star but rather than learn the instrument first he tried to live the lifestyle. A bad mistake.

He studied conspiracy theories when someone gave him a David Icke video around 1994 and when he saw Bill Hicks perform he started doing Stand Up comedy to talk about some of the same issues and David and Bill .

He tried to keep up his 'Rock'n'Roll' lifestyle which inevitably led to some crazy tales which then came into his comedy act. After living in Turkey for 12 years he returned to Scotland in 2018 and has performed hundreds of gigs which he continues to do to this day.

Synopsis

Do you like a good laugh but think comedy has gone too politically correct? If you like your comedy writers to bare their soul and shoot from the hip you are hard pressed to find any who are not scared to say what they think and challenge their audience to laugh with them at their own foibles as well as look at society with a sharply critical eye.

In “The Plane Facts”, Billy Watson, writes about his life story which includes stories of drink and drug taking, prostitutes, Marriage and his various travels including visits to Jamaica, Amsterdam and his life in Turkey where he lived for 12 years. He also writes about Conspiracy Theories, War On Terrorism, Football, Work and Christmas from a personal and slightly cynical viewpoint. The author has also written a section for the book where he goes into politics in a deeper way than most writers of comedy do and there he pulls no punches in his views of the establishment and the so called 'powers that be' and how ultimately it is we the people who must step up to the plate to sort things out.

Billy has led a very colourful and eventful life and through his struggles and challenges he hopes to bring humor to the everyday aspects of living so that audience can get a laugh of recognition as they may have the same struggles going on in their life. For the past 30 years he has been studying conspiracy theories and therefore has a very different viewpoint on most subjects than the official version and that infuses his writing and his poetry.

Why support this book?

  • Billy had a website in Turkey called Antalya Living where he travelled across the region making video blogs and taking photographs and on his own website he also does that and makes videos and photographs of the acts and blogs about each event.
  • The author also became inadvertently involved in a few small scandals in the comedy world which he will tell his side of the story. One was Cockgate at the Edinburgh Festival in 2011 with Kunt and the Gang. The next was The Grand Gong Show with a promoter who went out his way to make sure Billy didn't win and then there was Turkeygate where Billy got involved in an episode apparently of The Turkish Mafia. Get Billy's version of these stories by supporting the book launch.

Similar titles

  • "Last Words" by George Carlin, published by FREE PRESS on 16 December 2010. Here, he spares no details describing his life and career, discussing his personal battle with substance abuse, his often turbulent relationships with the women in his life and the politics that informed his stand-up routines. This sounds very similar to Billy’s book except he also has poetry.
  • "Love All the People" by Bill Hicks, published by Constable on 26 May 2005. A collection of Stand Up routines with similar themes to Billy’s book. Again no poetry included.
  • "Pryor Convictions: And Other Life Sentences" by Richard Pryor, published by Rare Bird Books - republished on 24 Apr 2018. Richard gives a glimpse of the life of the greatest comedian of his generation. With a keen eye and his trademark humor, he delivers an entertaining powerhouse of a memoir.

Audience

People who like a good laugh and are tired with the normal ‘try to please everybody’ style of humour that has taken over. Also for those who like to think about the world in a different way than that presented on the nightly news. Onotherwords, it is for those with a brain and who are not easily shocked.

Advance praise

"I have an awful lot to do with poetry and this....this is one of the few collections I have read that is absolutely stellar. I loved it." - Casandra, Book Editor.

"Billy is quick, boy is he quick. You get your money's worth with him, that's for sure. A definite jaw-opener which we need more of in comedy, if you ask me. Billy has everything I love in a comedian. Having Hicks and Carlin as some of my influences, I could relate to Billy's style. He has that controlled anger, offloading his vent from a tightly-clutched fist around the mic and delivering a punch packed with full-on, in-your-face meaning. This guy isn't just discharging frustration at the world - he is a voice of reason. Politically in tune - and charged. I found Billy's wealth of knowledge a joy to behold. He mixed his material with what the audience loved to hear." - Stephen Hamilton, president of Daily Dafty.

You rocked! Love your political slant, your honesty and your raw beauty. You speak from the heart and you're funny. Never stop. Whether it's poetry, comedy or your own political party. Thanks for the breath of fresh air. - Viv Gee - Comedian. Actor. Writer
