The hilarious Benny Hill is widely regarded as one of the greatest comedians of the 20th century.  His groundbreaking TV series ran for many seasons, most popularly produced by Thames Television from 1969-1989.  A&E Home Video is now releasing the complete 20 year run of the series.  The set contains 58 episodes on 18 DVDs and will be sure to delight his many fans!

BENNY HILL: THE COMPLETE MEGASET contains Benny’s raucous 20-year reign over the television-sketch variety genre, from the naughty early years to the debut of the nubile Hills Angels, through the final episodes. Witness the birth of crazy caricatures like Fred Scuttle, Chow Mein, and Pierre de Terre. Laugh out loud as Benny and his bevy of buxom babes flaunt their racy rowdiness and tongue-in-cheek satire in characteristically outrageous sketches like The Little Dimpton Street Party and The Crook Report.

BONUS FEATURES:
  • Bonus Documentary: The Worlds Favorite Clown;
  • The Benny Hill Cheeky Challenge Trivia Quiz # 1-6
  • Liner Notes DVD Insert Booklets
  • Benny Hill: Laughter and Controversy Episode of A&Es Award-Winning Series BIOGRAPHY®
  • Eddie in August
  • Featurettes: I Was A Hills Angel, Hills Angels: Off the Record and Hills Angels: In Conversation

Benny Hill is one I honestly admire, for his proudly, unapologetically bawdy strain of humor.

(something you may know...on several of the 1980's vintage episodes of Benny's program, one of the background dancers is actress Jane Leeves (FRASIER and HOT IN CLEVELAND).
