This thread is dedicated to my idol, my favorite man, the person I look up to, obsess over etc... the late Benny Hill!

He is the one person I can really identify with on a deep, personal level. When reading books about him, it was sometimes as If I was reading my life story!

He lived alone, enjoyed a routine, kept largely to himself, was shy around women. I could go on and on, he is actually one of the few famous people I believe could have aspergers, as he fits the criteria to a T.

I intrinsicly watch his tv shows, studying his body language, his facial expressions and other things and have really learnt a great deal of how someone makes comedy, it has also helped me a bit socially.

But to get less formal, let's show some classic Benny:

I used to love the Benny Hill Show!! I have that kind of a sense of humor. I remember one of the sketches showed people at a convention and this busty woman had a nametag on her chest that said, "Pat." So he did. :lol: In another one, he was a vandal with spray paint. the sign said "Jackson's Tool Works". Underneath, he painted, "So does mine." :lol:

I wasn't supposed to watch it but I got up at noon and went to bed at 2 a.m. one summer when I was about 12. It came on in the middle of the night.

Haha, yeah, he did those in the later shows in the 80's, they were always written on brick walls and were just funny quick jokes :lol:
