Billy Bragg - Handyman's Blues

Directed by Johnny Vegas...

Billy Bragg isn't renowned for telling jokes.

The English songwriter is a protestor, a heckling, someone who lays truths bare in the most arresting form possible. Sure, his material is laced with self-deprecating humour, but at heart Billy Bragg plays it straight.

Which is what makes his new video so hilarious. Directed by Johnny Vegas, it features Billy Bragg and a host of guest stars revealing how terrible they are at DIY.

A simple premise, for sure, but it helps when said guest stars include (deep breath) Ross Noble, Neil Morrissey, Stewart Lee, Kevin Eldon, Ricky Grover, Samuel West and Phill Jupitus.

Watch it now.
