Benny Hill is an underappreciated comic genius

The humor of Benny Hill is something that you generally really like or really dislike. It is a combination of slapstick, wordplay, incongruous situations and exaggerated facial expressions. Hill was a comedic genius in his ability to take situations from mythology to daily life and apply his own twist on them. The cover image is from a sketch where he is Cupid using his arrows to create romance. In typical Hill style, the first arrow he pulls from his quiver is broken and his facial expression of frustration is very funny.
Hill's comedy routines often include scantily clad women; so scanty is their clothing that at times the routines were at the very limit of what could appear on television. If that offends you then Hill is someone to avoid but if that is fine with you, the timing and structure of his routines will impress your comedic sense and leave you laughing. Unlike some of the modern comedians that rely on the shock value of swear words, Hill uses wordplay to create the semblance of swearing without actually going there. For example, "therapist" becomes "they are p****." In a similar manner, in this tape he creates apparent female nudity without actually quite getting there. In one scene the bottom half of a woman is covered with a sheer stocking yet in the front she has a pistol covering her pubic region. Given that she is a parody of Adolph Hitler, the scene is amusing on many levels. The comedic genius of Benny Hill remains unappreciated, which is unfortunate as he was one of the best.
