Harry Hill to star in road trip movie “with a sick hamster and some badgers involved”
Comedian Harry Hill – who began his working life as a doctor – has revealed that he’s going to make a “road trip” film that’s not dissimilar to US cult movie, Pee-wee’s Big Adventure.
Harry of course quit his popular Saturday night show TV Burp in March in order to spend more time on new projects, and this film is one of them.
Speaking to TV Biz, Harry – who also provides the narration for You’ve Been Framed – said, “It’s partly a road trip, with a sick hamster and some badgers involved, plus some songs and guest appearances.
“[It’s] the kind of thing I always do, but a bit longer and wider…”
And when asked why he’d decided to quit TV Burp, Harry explained, “You got this new, knowing breed of shows, like The Only Way Is Essex, where the jokes were already built in…
“And there was no leverage for us. Even Coronation Street became jokier.”
However, he added that he’s glad the show went out on a high, having achieved growing audiences year on year for its nine-year long run.
He said, “I think, in the end, we just about avoided it going a bit s***.
He also revealed that he has no plans to make any other TV comedy shows as yet, saying, “Following TV Burp is a bit like following Dark Side of the Moon.
“It’s got to be really, really good.”
We’ll keep you posted about the development of Harry’s film as and when we hear more about it.
