Default Benny Hill on BBC America

Has anyone watched BBC America recently There's this fantastic comedian I think his name is Benny Hill ? He's so on the pulse with today, and such a wicked sense of humour. Hats of to the execs at BBC America for keeping up to date with all the latest comedy to come out of the U.K. I can't get enough of him, even though he seems to be on every night.
I intend to write to the big wigs at BBC America, and ask them if they will look into possibly showing that other top comedian from the British Isles.... what's his name ??? Aurthur Askey I think ???

I'm looking forward to them airing some Norman Wisdom and George Formby movies personally
At least Benny is better than seeing the same episode of Monarch of the ****ing Glenn for the 14 time in a month. I know what you are saying though.

Oh yes please, and maybe some of Billy Cotton's big band programmes too.

I think they should definitely bring back "What's my Line?'...

I'm sorry. I could have sworn I read that you think Benny Hill is a fantastic comedian. Oh.....you did. Oh dear.



BBC America is lacking new comedy although The Smoking Room has just started.

Keeping Up Appearances?

Are You Being Served?

Please.

I'm hoping there was sarcasm in the opening post. At least, I really hope so.

I hope so too! It has as much arse licking as a Fox News reporter presenting a town hall debate with George Bush.

I think the OP is either a troll or is seriously taking the piss. We've had Benny Hill over here since I was a kid; ain't like America's never seen it before.

BBCA = pile of wank

BBCA = the reason we in the US are not allowed to stream the *real* BBC channels
