Sausage Time Facts
The self-styled floppy-collared loon is back with a live show that promises incontrovertible proof that God exists. Joined by showband ‘The Harry’s’, there’s a section exclusively for Tongans, a chance to catch up on Harry’s Nan’s latest ailments, the legendary Stouffer the Cat and a debut solo stand-up spot by Gary, Harry’s son from his first marriage and recognisable for his role as Alan Sugar in Harry Hill’s TV Burp.
There’ll be expert-whistler-of-chart-hits grandson Sam and an all-singing, all-dancing finale. Oh, and a giant sausage.
As creator and star of the hit show TV Burp (ITV1), Harry firmly established himself in the Saturday night, primetime television schedules fronting a staggering 11 series of the show over a ten year period. The show scooped three BAFTA awards, two 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,” 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.
