Britain's most original comedian
15 July 2001 | by japfles-1See all my reviews

Harry Hill's first series for Channel Four (UK) took most of the viewing public by surprise. This show was a non-stop, surreal rollercoaster experience with Harry linking sketches with his stand-up routine which he had been perfecting on the live circuit for years. To 'get' Harry Hill you really do have to have your wits about you. Threads of stories are started and seemingly abandoned but returned to 15 minutes later. The structure of each show rarely varied which was, in fact, its strength. Catchphrases came thick and fast and we embraced them all. Puppets featured highly with Harry's obsession with the 'Badger Parade' reaching crisis level on each show. The badgers were fired on one particular show and replaced by the owls...like I said...surreal stuff but very, very funny. Harry completed two further series for Channel Four in 1998 and 2000. We anxiously await his next move.
