Harry Hill Caricature

A quick caricature of the TV presenter and Comedian Harry Hill! The Glasses and Collar make a great accessory to the caricature but would Harry Hill be the same person without his large collar and spectacles. Harry Hill has said in interviews before that it’s his comedy persona! Harry Hill is actually his showbiz name and that in real life he’s more reserved and quiet. Not one for fame and going out with famous people, but rather watching TV, watching cinema and generally mucking around. Perhaps that’s why he was so fantastic with ‘Harry Hill’s TV Burps’ that was broadcasted between 2001-2012, and was consistently funny. He managed to poke fun at every TV programme going with silly spoof scenes and silly sketches. Poor old Cheryl  Fergison as Eastenders Heather Trott got it bad! But was hilarious! Then there was the epic fight sketches used in very episode on what he liked best, and I can’t forget the ventriloquist puppet of Alan Sugar when the Apprentice series was on. Harry Hill grew up in Kent and lives in Whitstable, consequently a really great place to visit especially when the oyster festival is on.  I’ve been and the year I went Prince Charles also visited and had lots of crowds around. Harry Hill made a reference to this on TV Burps once ‘Big Up The Medway Posse’.  A little unknown fact is that Harry Hill first trained and started a career as a Neuro-surgeon - wow, before his big break-through in 1992 at the Best Newcomer Award at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. I do like being a Doctor, and I do like be a comedian, but what is better? There is only one way to find out, - ‘FIIIGHHHT’. Of course it was comedy and Harry Hill has been making us laugh for the last two decades or more since.
