Before becoming a comedian, Harry Hill (real name Matthew Hall) was previously a doctor. After winning the Perrier Award for Best Newcomer at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 1992, Harry got a BBC radio series: "Harry Hill's Fruit Corner" which also became a TV series.
The comedian became an attraction on the radio and on the short lived TV Series Saturday Live. Hill has also made appearances in Blankety Blank, Late Show with David Letterman and Celebrity Stars in their Eyes (as Morrissey).
In recent years, Hill has made TV series for Channel 4 and ITV. Recently, Harry has proved voice-overs for commercials for McDonalds, Branston Tang, Huggies Super-Flex Nappies, Dairylea Finger Dunkers and Tuc Biscuits. He has also recently appeared in various adverts such as The Times Newspaper (with Sanjeev Bhaskar) and Boots the Chemist (as a doctor).
