I loved Benny Hill back in the '80s. It was on PBS in the Boston market. It was "must see tv" after the evening news. That and the Muppets.

Quite right, wit. IDK if I could enjoy BH now. It was hilarious in my 20s though!

Probably would be better in a group alcohol session.

Remember when some thought Benny Hill was a little smutty?

Now look at where it went....Two Broke Girls.

Benny Hill was pretty funny but TBG got their laughs from smirks.

Sometimes I would laugh until I cried and my side's hurt! It was so different from American comedy. I do remember it fondly.

Well that explains it. I remember when Benny Hill would come on late night in the 80's and I HATED it.


Don't like the Three Stooges either so there we are.

Interesting, not a fan of slapstick comedy but loved Benny.
