Benny hill show

Creator: Benny Hill.

Cast: Benny Hill, Henry McGee, Jackie Wright

he Benny Hill Show features Benny Hill in various short comedy slap stick sketches and occasional, extravagant musical performances by artists of the time. Benny Hill appears in many different costumes and portrays a vast array of characters. Slapstick, burlesque and double entendres are his hallmarks. Of course a group critics has written that the show was sexist. It was center like you would see a 1920 film in color there were no sound just music. The sketches some of them were tasteless even suggestive like the on were Benny hill is drooling and make faces when he saw a pair of big boobs. The burlesque show that Benny Hill went to see with his father had a great influence with Benny it shows in his sketches comedy, also he has been influence by Charlie Chaplin, Laurel and Hardy, and the Three Stooges.  Benny Hill was an inspiration to United States sketch comedies like SNL and MAD TV. I remember seeing this in the 80’s I thought this is cool and funny as hell I need to see more. At the end of the show there were showing the bloopers those were very popular. Even today it’s still hold and is still funny. You might find it on Netflix.
