Benny Hill had a humble beginning as a milkman but soon became a world famous comedic genius
Benny Hill had a humble beginning as a milkman but soon landed a few gigs at social clubs, nightclubs and eventually theaters. From there he made appearances on British radio shows and ended up with a show of his own.
The iconic British comedy, The Benny Hill Show ran from 1955 to 1991. It aired in various forms in over 140 countries. The show’s focus was on slapstick, parody, and even mime sketches and was full of double-entendre. In later years the show also included a dance troupe, the Hill’s Angels.
Aside from Benny Hill himself, the main supporting cast included Henry McGee, Jon Jon Keefe, Nicholas Parsons, Bob Todd and Jackie Wright. After a decline in ratings, Thames Television canceled production of the show in 1989. Regular Angels were Sue Upton and Louise English, Jane Leeves also appeared as a Hill's Angel in a few episodes in the early 1980s.
