The Laughs From Knifecrime Island

"So, with a heavy heart, and virtual-tarp to fend off any rotten fruit thrown my way, I present to you an incomplete and completely subjective breakdown of the best and most influential British comedy television." Up first: "The Benny Hill Show."

Soupy twist.

Is this just going to be about acts that Americans have heard of or are you going to mention Morecambe & Wise who were 10,000 times funnier than Benny Hill, on television for even longer, and far more popular?

I always thought Dick Emery was seedier than Benny Hill. They play The Goodies sometimes on UKTV in New Zealand. Still makes me laugh 30 odd years later.
