When we first came to america, our family used to love watching Benny Hill on the tele. Man, that guy used to get my father in stitches - he was such a goof ball but I totally loved his humor and the rest of the old farts on his crew. It's been so long now, and i don't think they even air re-runs anymore... does anyone know what happened to him?
Not British, but I loved Benny. The double entendres and malapropisms were wonderful - one of the best, though it would help to see the scene, though maybe some will remember it, is when he was "hugged" by one of the Hill's Angels who asked naively, "What is this thing called love", but spoke the line as "What is this thing called, Love?" as she was squeezing his backside.
