After Dinner & Event Speaker (in association with SpeakOut!)
Harry Roy Hill (born 1964 in Woking, Surrey) is the stage name of Matthew Hall, a stand-up comedian who has graduated to being a star of British television by way of a BBC radio series Harry Hill's Fruit Corner.
Harry Hill is one of an elite team of alternative British comics associated with the Avalon comedy family. Other careers launched from this gun barrel include those of Richard Herring, Stewart Lee, Dave Gorman, Simon Munnery, Frank Skinner, David Baddiel and Al Murray.
Matthew Hall is very fond of visual gimmicks and there are several associated with his Harry Hill character. Among these are the bald head, the thick black spectacles, pens in the top pocket, small badges on the lapel and, most famously, a comically oversized shirt collar.
Hill's humour is quirky almost to the point of surrealism. In way of illustrating this, the comedy historian Oliver Double described Hill as being Ronnie Corbett possessed by the ghost of Salvador Dali.
As almost every newspaper interview or profile of Harry Hill will reveal, his real-life alter ego, Matthew, is a qualified medical doctor.
In 2003, he was listed in The Observer as one of the 50 funniest acts in British comedy. In a 2005 poll to find The Comedian's Comedian, he was voted amongst the top 50 comedy acts ever by fellow comedians and comedy insiders.
