It was NOT funnier than Monty Python. Some of the skits were ripped off from Monty Python.

Benny Hill was just plain awful! It was running in the Bay Area back when I was a kid at the same time PBS was running Monty Python and there just was no comparison.

I can think of a number of MP routines which had me laughing until a cried ("it's an ex-parrot! Nah, he's just resting..."). On the other hand, I can't think of a single time I ever had the patience to sit through an entire episode of BH's atrocious "comedy" show.

I *so* agree, James. I know many individuals who can recite MP dialogue until they turn blue in the face. All I remember about BH is him running around with bimbos while ineptly singing stupid songs. Ugh.
