  • Quotes

    • Harry: (on his fairtrade food venture) This is the closest I'll get to being Paul Newman.

    • Harry: If it's going badly, get off. If it's going well, get off.

    • Harry: Well, I've had a terrible week. I've had that, erm, Anthrax, have you had that? Diarrhoea, blood in the urine, the liver was disintegrating... and I found the only thing that really helped... was Lemsip. Just took the edge off.

    • Harry: My aunt used to say, 'What you can't see, can't hurt you'...well, she died of radiation poisoning a few months back!

    • Harry: It's only when you look at an ant through a magnifying glass on a sunny day that you realise how often they burst into flames.

    • Harry: When you buy a V-neck sweater there's a V of material missing. You know what they do with that? They send it to Ann Summers and she makes those fancy pants.

    • Harry: (on beating Ant and Dec and the 2006 British Comedy Awards) It's all over for you!

    • Harry: (on why he quit being a doctor) I left because it wasn't really me. An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but in my experience so does an air rifle and an open bedroom window.

    • Harry: I was doing some decorating, so I got out my step-ladder. I don't get on with my real ladder.

    • Harry: My Dad used to say 'always fight fire with fire', which is probably why he got thrown out of the the fire brigade.

    • Harry: Well I was bullied at school, called all kinds of different names. But one day I turned to my bullies and said - 'Sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me', and it worked! From there on it was sticks and stones all the way.

    • Harry: I knew I was going bald when it was taking longer and longer to wash my face.

    Wow, where do i start? Harry Hill is probably one of the funniest men alive, his unique approch to comedy really make him funny, his show TV Burp picks out all of the funniest scene from soap (he makes them funny) and acts out a lot of random stuff and may favourite line "There's only one way to find out FIGHT" really make me laugh, i hope that his shows will continue to get better and better. The recent episodes of TV Burp have been haliriouse, how does he come up with all of these unique ideas? Harry hill is one of the best comedian alive.moreless
