Hello and welcome to Billy Watson TV.

Billy at Vespbar

Over the years I have performed comedy and poetry in various bars and clubs around Scotland and more recently in Antalya in Turkey, where I now reside.

I performed both as myself and also as a few different comedy characters who in order of appearance were The Great White Shaft, Hamish McTavish/McScottie and the main one I do now Nob Stewart.

I also like to make video blogs in and out of character and interview and film people I find of interest such as conspiracy researchers, comedians, musicians and poets.

The purpose of this website is to showcase the various pieces of work I have done over the years as well as share some of the videos I managed to capture of the other artists.

Here are some photos of my life with my commentary over the top.
I was brought up in a small town near Edinburgh called South Queensferry which is most famous for the Forth Rail Bridge which you can see on many postcards and souvenirs about Scotland.

I got a job in the large petrochemical factory in Grangemouth when I was 16 and I moved through to Falkirk when I was 17 to by myself, although my friends made sure I was never lonely as it became hang out central.

I met a Turkish women who was studying in Sheffield when I went to see The Rolling Stones there in 1995 and one year and twelve days later we got married….mainly so I could escape the lifestyle I had with my friends. It was ok for them, they could come and go as they pleased, I had to drink with everyone in turn.

We had a son in 2004 and in 2006 we decided to move to Antalya in Turkey where we had been visiting to see my wife’s parents. As there were no comedy clubs to perform here. During my time in Antalya, every year I would return to Scotland every August for the Edinburgh Festival where I put on a full one man show in 2002/09/11/12/14.

I got divorced in 2010 but decided to stay in Turkey to be close to my son, however I felt a bit homesick and returned to Scotland in October 2013. After returning to Antalya for a holiday in June 2014 to see my son, I realised what I had left behind and so decided to move back here in August 2014.

I am very happy to be back in Turkey and although it is difficult to find places to perform in Antalya, I intend to travel around the region performing and writing about my travels both here and on my other aforementioned website.



I built a blog/information site called Antalya Living to showcase my adventures and to keep my creative side going and which I stil run today but I turned it into a more general site about Turkey and imported the blogs to my Billys Blog section.

The website was featured in an Article by The Daily Sabah.
