Riassunto: Benny Hill was an unlikely figure of global admiration—he was a deeply private individual, a loner, uninterested in money and the trappings of success. Acclaimed in the 1950s as the first British TV comedy superstar, loved for his pioneering ideas and humor, Hill's popularity remained undimmed for decades. But in the 1980s, he was reviled in Britain, with his innuendo-strewn humor branded sexist. His TV show's sudden end in 1989 was followed by a self-inflicted decline in his health, and Benny died in 1992.
L'autore: Critically acclaimed for works such as his encyclopaedic 'Radio Times Guide to TV Comedy', Mark Lewisohn has an enviable reputation as a meticulous and balanced researcher of popular culture: the Telegraph said of Lewisohn's 'The Complete Beatles Chronicle' that it 'borders on a work of genius'. With unprecedented access to archives, intensive research and interviews with friends, family and colleagues, this is the last word on the 'world's most popular comedian'.
