Pinner: Many adolescent late nights at sleepovers, watching Benny Hill reruns, hoping for the one that had a flash of boobies in it.


Ditto. A proper mainstay of my childhood. An accomplished actor as well.

But a totally reclusive spendthrift outside of the spotlight. Living in a small house and always looking for the cheapest bargains at his local shop ("dented tins are the best as you usually got 10-20p off!"), and would glue the soles of his shoes back on, and walk to the BBC instead of getting a taxi.

Sadly, his outlandish persona betrayed a man who was lonely, and 'felt ugly'. It didn't help that his style of comedy became outdated very quickly.

But even now he's remembered with great fondness, and it's a testament to his legacy that I'll always crack a smile when I chance upon one of his shows in the deep recesses of Cable TV

Happy birthday, and sleep well, you magnificent man.

The entire silent skit music always gets overlooked by Yakety Sax.

My brother did some sort of work during college in the late 80's.  One function he worked had Benny there.  He was apparently funny as hell.

Sad, indeed. He died alone and it was 4 or 5 days before anyone knew he was dead

Good on him for keeping Vaudeville-style humor going as long as he did, but times and tastes changed

Just before the beginning of my 8th grade year at my school, asbestos was found in the building, which forced the school to move our grades to the high school, and both (middle and high school) ran alternate schedules, with us going later in the day (11:00am - 4:30pm).  In the morning, I'd get up, get dressed, eat breakfast, and watch tv until the bus arrived.  The Benny HIll show was on at 10:30am.  Thank you channel 29 in Buffalo in the 1980's.

He been ded long time now.

He was funny as hell but no one talks about him anymore.
Probably due to that old guy on his show that was in black face on the show quite a bit.
