Book Description

31 May 2002
How and why did Benny Hill live the way he did? If he was so rich, why didn't he buy himself a beautiful home? Why did he never marry and did he only pretend to love the ladies? And whatever did he do with all that money? In this biography, Dennis Kirkland aims to answer all these questions and more. For years Dennis Kirkland worked close to Benny Hill, first as a warm-up act and later as a producer and director of his shows. During his time with Benny he gained an insight into the character of one the most famous and yet elusive comedians of all time.

When I searched the internet on books on Benny Hill there was always one that came up, Funny, Peculiar by Mark Lewisohn.
Having read reviews it didn't seem like a book I wanted to read about Benny.
Sure I wanted the truth and the not so glamorous bits as well so I found this book by Dennis Kirkland.
I recommend this book because it is written by Dennis Kirkland who was one of the closest friends to Benny and his director for 10 years.
There's a lot of things written about Benny, some rubbish taken from gosip papers and that's why I think Dennis book is very truthful.
Now that I read the book I feel I have gotten to know Benny and all the questions I might had before has been answered.
If you're a fan of Benny, pick this book as I think it's the most truthful out there and it will make you feel good about Benny.
