The All-New Harry Hill Show - Benny Hill - Netflix
Alfred Hawthorne “Benny” Hill (21 January 1924 – 20 April 1992) was an English comedian and actor, best remembered for his television programme The Benny Hill Show, an amalgam of slapstick, burlesque, and double entendre in a format that included live comedy and filmed segments, with him at the focus of almost every segment. A prominent figure in British culture for nearly four decades, his show proved to be one of the great success stories of television comedy. Among the most-watched programmes in the UK, the audience peaked at more than 21 million in 1971. The show generated impressive revenues for Thames Television, and retains a following in much of the world decades after Hill's death.

After the Second World War, Hill worked as a performer on radio. His first appearance on television was in 1950. In addition, he attempted a sitcom anthology, Benny Hill, which ran from 1962 to 1963, in which he played a different character in each episode. In 1964, he played Nick Bottom in an all-star TV film production of William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. He also had a radio programme lasting for three series called Benny Hill Time, on BBC Radio's Light Programme, from 1964 to 1966. It was a topical show, such as a March 1964 episode which featured James Pond, 0017, in “From Moscow with Love” and his version of “The Beatles”. He played a number of characters in the series, such as Harry Hill and Fred Scuttle.
