    I heard from a guy who works at a local TV station that this guy was huge.

    I understand that Benny was single and that he's now passed away, sad to say. The on-line bio I found mentions that the woman he loved passed him up for someone else.

    ...Hmmm...wonder why?

    Does anyone have any more info or pics?

    Industry gossip was that Benny Hill was in fact GAY.

    100% incorrect.
    Benny Hill was very straight.

    Perhaps confusion with Kenny Everett, who was indeed gay? Both were British comics who did shows for Thames Television around the same time. I doubt that either were hung.

    I don't see a gay guy getting such a thrill from touching a woman's rump and Benny was always copping a feel.


    Poor Benny gets a bad knock because he dealt in slapstick. However, his show featured a short film, "The Police Raid in Waterloo Station," that is sheer genius and matches anything done by better reputed comics, including the masters such as Chaplin, Laurel & Hardy or the Marx Brothers.

    Sure, he was big.
    He was all swollen down there from riding that tiny tricycle.
    (hearing the BENNY HILL theme in my head)
    :D

    Nah, actually, i first knew about Hill because he
    was the toymaker in CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG.

    All reports say he was a cool guy.

    I worked with Benny once on a radio quiz programme and he was delightful - very down-to-earth, no "big star" complex.
