Post your questions for Harry Hill

Estimated read time 2 min read

Originally a doctor and still a registered medical practitioner, Harry Hill cemented his career as a spectacle-wearing, large-collared standup by winning the Perrier Best Newcomer award at Edinburgh in 1992. More than 30 years on, and he’s just announced his New Bits & Greatest Hits tour, celebrating “60 years of fun” ahead of the milestone birthday next year.

Hill has written a novel, a collection of short stories and a (fictional) autobiography. His new book, How To Be Silly Every Day of the Year, is out in October. He’s co-written two musicals – I Can’t Sing! The X Factor Musical (2014) and TONY! – A Tony Blair Rock Opera (2021). He’s hosted a spoof podcast – Harry Hill’s Noise, the “antidote to podcasts” – while his proper podcast, Are We There Yet?, is coming soon.

On the big screen, he starred in The Harry Hill Movie in 2013, with Julie Walters, Sheridan Smith, Simon Bird and Jim Broadbent. In 2023 he wrote and starred in the short silent film The Last Caveman, “a silent, slapstick romcom about a caveman” with Nick Helm and Holly Burn. The film is now touring the UK with Hill hosting a Q&A after the screenings, and further dates to be announced.

On TV, he’s advertised Branston Pickle and Green Flag, and endorsed his own brand of Fairtrade peanuts, Harry’s Nuts. He appeared as his hero Morrissey in Stars in Their Eyes, fronting a reboot of the series in 2015. He presented own (brilliant) CITV kid’s show, Shark Infested Custard, and was the (sublimely aloof) narrator of You’ve Been Framed! for nearly 20 years from 2004. He now presents Junior Bake Off in a series of fetching tank tops. He’s a fan of badgers. And the more you can say about TV Burp, the better.
