The Benny Hill Show



The Benny Hill Show

(Comedy)


An occasional 50 minute show written by and starring Benny Hill, featuring comedy sketches and bawdy songs.
In 1979 ten years worth of programmes were re-edited into 25 minute programmes and sold to the USA where they were screened twice nightly from coast to coast, with the result that 'Benny Hill' became a cult figure almost over night.
In 1971 the show won a British Acadamy (BAFTA) Award for "Best Light-Entertainment Programme"
