Harry Hill is one of the most recognisable faces in the country and has created some of the most successful TV shows of the last two decades, collecting three BAFTAs, eight British Comedy Awards and a Golden Rose of Montreux along the way.
As creator and star of TV Burp (ITV1), Harry firmly established himself in the Saturday night, primetime television schedules fronting a staggering 11 series of the show over a 10-year period. The show scooped three BAFTA awards, four British Comedy Awards and the coveted Rose D’Or Award at the Montreux International Television Festival. Described by The Sunday Telegraph as “consistently one of the funniest shows on air,” Harry Hill’s TV Burp was Harry’s unique take on the week’s TV, featuring sketches, observational voiceovers and special guest appearances. The show, which The Guardian Guide raved was “one of the wittiest, sharpest shows on the box,” regularly topped 8 million viewers and led to four spin off ‘best of’ DVD releases as well as Harry’s hugely successful, Harry Hill's TV Burp Book (Ebury).
Most recently the show was nominated in two categories at the 2012 BAFTA Television Awards, the first for Best Entertainment Programme and the second for Best Entertainment Performance for Harry.
One of Time Out's Top 10 funniest comedians on Twitter and host of the sell out London comedy show Pun Run, Bec Hill has received four star reviews from The Times, The Scotsman and The List. As seen on BBC's The Dog Ate My Homework and Sky's DC Fancast.
