I’ve been thinking about Benny Hill and his Benny Hill Show recently, perhaps because I watched a couple episodes. It’s a classic show. It also seems quite obvious to me that Hill influenced people like the Monty Python crew. I must say, though, I think he was better. Benny Hill could probably not have made a movie the way the Monty Python folks did, but his forte was the short scene. And it’s quite amazing how much he could pack into a moment!
