Harry Hill edits the Beano
Harry Hill has guest edited this month's edition of the Beano.
The comedian agreed to oversee the production of the content for March's issue of the long-running comic as part of a drive to raise funds for Comic Relief and Red Nose Day.
The comedian, who is currently touring the country with his Sausage Time live show, has reportedly been very hands on with the editing. He has helped write much of the magazine, including the introductory editor's letter, the main Dennis and Gnasher story, and various mini-strips.
Harry has labelled this episode of the Beano as 'The Bald Issue' - and as part of this, as can be seen from the cover photo, Dennis the Menace loses his famous spikes for the first time in history. Inside readers can also see the character of Minnie the Minx orchestrating a head shaving campaign which involves political leaders, the presenters of Top Gear, and even HRH the Queen entering into the spirit of Hill's vision for a totally bald Britain.
Also in the magazine is a Harry Hill disguise kit for readers to wear while they put on comedy shows for friends and family, plus tips from the TV Burp star on how to perform comedy, with some helpfully supplied jokes too.
The illustrated Harry Hill character also appears in a special Bash Street Kids story. Harry and his comedian friends (including Jimmy Carr, Michael McIntyre and The Chuckle Brothers) are depicted as their younger selves in this strip, which has been drawn by legendary Beano artist Dave Sutherland.
Plus, if that wasn't all, Dennis the Menace conducts an exclusive interview where Harry reveals the secrets of his success, his favourite jokes, the funniest person he knows, and his memories of his own attempts to do something funny at school. Harry even talks about his former career as a doctor, much to Dennis's shock!
