TBT – 25 Years Without Benny Hill – A Tribute to Comic Genius
Benny Hill, a brilliant English comedian whose one hour show (The Benny Hill Show) was broadcast locally on WLVI Channel 56 out of Boston back in the 80's, passed away 25 years ago today. Let's celebrate his life with a zany chase scene!
I had never seen this episode before, his BMX tricks are a riot. I prefer to think of him in the afterlife as the angel he transforms into at 2:15.
Often accused of being sexist, I think the level of outright ridiculousness and quality of laughs conveyed by his material makes it timeless.
As proof, this is the funniest GIF ever! And it was originally aired decades before a GIF was even a thing!
LONG LIVE BENNY HILL!
