The First and Best,
This review is from: Harry Hill: Live! [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
Harry Hill shot to fame in his first radio series, and through the showing on BBC2 of the short films, Harry Hill's Fruit Fancies. The former came out on CD, the latter VHS, but was expendable. This video, released simultaneously with Fruit Fancies, is a live stand-up show in London, and it is a masterpiece. None of Hill's devices are tired or predictable here--there is no badger parade or The Caterers--and one is given a magnificent, non-stop show, which by unlimitedly cross-referencing itself grabs you and pulls you into its world. Hill's performance is perfectly energetic and every gag is either spot-on or becomes spot-on later. This is one of the most inventive, intricate and dynamic stand-up shows ever.
