This review is from: Benny Hill: Complete Megaset [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Because of the adverse labelling by the Alternative Comedians in the 80's, Benny Hill is not widely admired. I would add that I enjoy much modern comedy and I have seen Ben Elton and Alexi Sayle live.
I have been watching quite a lot of slapstick comedy including all the silent stars. I have to say that Benny Hill's timing and ingenuity are on a par with all of them, including Keaton and Stan Laurel. If you like Airplane and all the Lesley Nielsen parodies you will reallhy enjoy this.
Yes there is plenty of smut, well it is pretty harmless. But buy this set and marvel at his wonderful slapstick talent. There are some side splitting moments in these recirdings and it is a wonder how he managed to create so much material. One day he will receive due recogniotion.
Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys comedy. This cannot be bettered.
