Tina Ogle, Time Out

“What Genius! What Absurdity! What Nonsense! What Fun! This extravaganza is a cornucopia of comedy, of trail blazing uniqueness.”
Sarah Villiers, Scotland On Sunday

“Totally Hilarious”
The Sunday Times

“The absurdist observations, running gags and catchphrases are all perfectly in tune and are destined for the Comedy Hall of Fame.”
Malcolm Hay, Time Out

“One of the hottest comic properties around.”
Focus

"Harry
Hill remains the most imaginative new act to hit the Edinburgh Festival for several summers."
The Observer

“Harry concocts a Burroughs-esque tangle of apparent non-sequiturs which, being bizarrely hilarious in themselves, eventually accumulate over half an hour into thrillingly ludicrous short stories.”
Johnny Cigarettes, NME

“Hill’s comic persona has an energy and crazy charm that entices you to suspend the bafflement and laugh.”
Matthew Norman, The Evening Standard

"Harry Hill's brand of cut-up comedy suggest William Burroughs taking a pair of scissors to TV Quick, catch him now before he gets famous."
Ben Thompson, The Independent On Sunday

"He makes helpless laughter feel absolutely effortless."

Time Out

Alexander Games, The Evening Standard

“Surreally funny.”
Charlie Catchpole, News Of The World

“He’ll wind you up and around and about through apparently unconnected stories, mock thoughtful advice and skewed observations, weaving a mesmerising web of musings that rarely fail to stitch you up with inexplicable mirth.”
Johnny Cigarettes, Vox

“Harry Hill's Fruit Fancies promises to be the most original first series since Monty Python's Flying Circus...as we speak, he’s rising through the comedy ranks quicker than a rat up the proverbial drainpipe and looks odds-on to elbow the likes of Enfield and Merton aside and become the latest chuckle-merchant to tickle the television nation’s collective funny bone"
Jon Wilde, Loaded

“Less a stream of consciousness, than a raging ocean of semi-conscious delirium.”
Matthew Norman, The Evening Standard

“Believe the rave reviews.”
Adrienne Connors, The Sunday Times
