Harry Hill: My Hobby

This listing is from a previous year.  Search for current listings.

Yes, the sizably-collared comedian likes to make art, generally pictures depicting celebrities in more or less absurd situations (one title is The Descent of Chris Tarrant Into Hell) but there are some more disturbing ones too, such as Status Quo's Francis Rossi and Rick Parfitt depicted as a self-cuddling conjoined twin in blue y-fronts. He cites outsider artist Howard Finster and his own mate David Shrigley as influences, so no wonder Shrigley talks to Hill in a special interview at the end of the exhibition. Part of Edinburgh Art Festival.
