The Benny Hill Show

Add to Watchlist

The Benny Hill Show is a British sketch comedy show both written by and starring comedian Benny Hill that has enjoyed popularity in over 140 countries. The program primarily focuses on slapstick humor, with the antics of Benny Hill chasing women being a featured routine.

The program also regularly features performances by actors and comedians Henry McGee, Jon Jon Keefe, Nicholas Parsons, Bob Todd and Jackie Wright. The regularly featured women in the program, crucial for many of the sketches' reliance on their more buxom attributes, are Jenny Lee-Wright, Sue Bond, Bettina Le Beau, Lesley Goldie, Cherri Gilham and Diana Darvey.

The opening theme of the show, Yakkety Sax, was written by James Q. Rich and performed by Boots Randolph. The song has become an instantly recognizable classic, having been played during many of the caper comedy scenes which helped make the Benny Hill Show such a beloved late night comedy classic.
