Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Harry Hill did not originally set out to make a career as a funnyman; he studied neurosurgery and worked as a doctor before becoming a comedian. His earliest success came in beginning of the 1990s when his radio comedy show, "Harry Hill's Fruit Corner," won the Perrier Award for Best Newcomer. The show ran for four seasons on BBC radio and was the catalyst for his television career. The first program he wrote and appeared on was "Fruit Fancies," based on his radio show, leading to several video releases such as "Harry Hill Live" in 1995 and "Harry Hill: Man Alive" in 1997. Also in 1997, he appeared in his own self-titled television show which combined quirky, surreal sketch comedy and stand-up. The program was very popular and ran until 2000. The next year, he began his most successful project, "Harry Hill's TV Burp," a comedy show satirizing UK television programs by showing clips and comically editing them while adding commentary. The show has earned him several BAFTA award wins and nominations. In addition to his television and radio work, Hill has given his name to a line of nuts, called "Harry's Nuts," has penned books, writes a regular comic strip, and has a weekly internet comedy series. ...
