For nearly four decades Benny Hill reigned supreme as the King of Comedy on British television. Undoubtedly, out of his entire body of work, it is the shows that he did for Thames Television in the 1970s for which he is best remembered and which confirmed him as a comic genius to the viewing public. With their combination of high-speed farce, risque jokes and beautiful ladies, it is these shows that turned him into a global superstar - topping the ratings both here and in America. Benny Hill, with his "three stooges" - Henry McGee, Bob Todd and Jack Wright, focused on producing a handful of 'specials' every year - shows which were critically acclaimed and always topped the ratings.
So join Benny and his Hill's Angels in four shows from 1970, along with a thirty minute play he starred in, wrote and co-directed - Eddie In August.
