A compelling and amusing portrait of a compulsive liar who has three fiancées, a penchant for tall tales and a truly dead-end job as an undertaker’s clerk in a Yorkshire town. Still living at home with his family, Billy dreams of becoming a writer for a comedian and escaping his everyday life. Unfortunately, Billy is unable to separate fantasy from real-life, and embroils himself in a web of tangled lies that will bring a many a chuckle to a listener, though will the outcome of his mistruths be quite as funny to Billy?
