A fitting farewell
22 July 2006 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Benny Hill was in his late 60's when this was shot... he died not long after it was finished. Only the greatest of entertainers, the ones who truly feel it a privilege to perform go on doing so until they die. In most of the latter half of his life, Benny Hill spent his energy and time making people laugh. I hope he died feeling that his life was a full one... he was an astonishingly funny man, and deserves every single one of the many laughs that he got in his lengthy career. This special holds a special(pun not intended) place in my heart... not only because it was his last, but because it was the first I saw of him. I remember seeing this in my early youth, and slowly warming up to the humor. I've seen this countless times since... and I still find the jokes and gags extraordinarily funny. No matter how many times I watch this all the way through, the hour it takes always seems to pass incredibly fast. From the very first sketch, the first joke or running gag, this has you in stitches. You'll learn "how to meet beautiful women", see a marvelous parody of Ask Dr. Ruth featuring Roseanne Barr, you'll even get to listen to a cough-and-sneeze choir. This also features the first, last and only(to my knowledge, at the very least) rap performance by Mr. Hill... with lyrics like only he could write them! Seeing as my "eureka" moment(the time I discovered it, and realized I loved it) regarding rap came at a later age, this is one of the first places I've ever heard rap, as well(before the concept of different music genres made its way into my head)... for that, too, this will always be special to me. Sure, some of the material was seen in his shows, too... but it's almost all great. All, or at least most, of his regular cast returns as well. All his trademark moves and facial expressions also appear. The humor is often smutty and crude... but that's just the way us fans want Benny to be! While this may not have the pace of either series, which had a younger(and probably of better health) Hill, it's still a worth-while experience. I recommend this to any fan of Benny Hill, though it may take a certain amount of respect for the man and his craft to enjoy, as it may not hold up if pitted against newer specials of other, younger comedians. RIP, Mr. Benny Hill. 8/10
