Harry Hill's TV Burp Series Premiere

Saturday, 10 October 2009, 7:30PM – 8:00PM

Harry Hill’s TV Burp returns this autumn, in a year that has seen HARRY add to his already impressive awards haul for the show, with another BAFTA Award and wins at both the British Comedy Awards and RTS Awards.

Expect more top-notch telly send-ups, as Harry gets back to business as usual, turning his forensic eye for comic detail to the top soaps, docs, dramas, and reality shows, skewering all the funniest, quirkiest and downright silliest clips along the way. Where else would you find a chef who makes meat out of fruit, a big-collared comedian impersonating Aandrew Marr impersonating Ant and Dec, and the fans’ favourite Knitted Character taking a ride on a wobbly jelly? The last series also saw stars including Dale Winton and Ronnie Corbett shooting through the studio, a pesky shark harassing Harry, and Lion Man Craig Busch became a Burp favourite courtesy of a catchy sing-a-long song.

Once again, viewers can look forward to a bumper run of Harry’s trademark high-jinks, including the Review of the Year special that’s fast becoming a fixture of the Christmas holiday schedules. Plus, following the success of last year’s Best Of’s, several more shows bringing together some of the funniest moments from Burps past.

As always, Burp is bang up to date, featuring the biggest shows from the week’s TV, so there’s no way of knowing what will feature – but there’ll be plenty of X Factor drama and Strictly Come Dancing razzle-dazzle to work with … and no doubt more televisual oddities will join Freaky Eaters, Hole in the Wall, Born Survivor: Bear Grylls, and Sally Morgan: Star Pyschic in the pantheon of TV Burp cult classics.

A busy autumn for HARRY will also see the release of Harry Hill’s TV Burp Gold 2 – the follow-up to last year’s hugely successful DVD, that gives fans another chance to catch the best bits from all previous series – and the first ever Harry Hill’s TV Burp Book, packed with all-new jokes, puzzles, parodies, cartoons and games written by HARRY exclusively for TV Burp’s literary debut.
