Harry Hill at Abraham Moss

Harry Hill, the comedian best known for Harry Hill’s TV Burp, recently visited Abraham Moss Library in Manchester to celebrate the release of his first children’s book.

Matt Millz, Harry’s new book, is illustrated by Steve May and tells the story of the world’s youngest stand-up comedian. 300 children attended the event at the library, from schools including Irk Valley Community School, Temple Primary School and Abraham Moss Community School.

The children were very excited to meet Harry, who got them all to take part in fun games during the event. He showed the audience a series of photographs of himself with other famous celebrities, as well as some funny childhood snaps.

Harry talked about his novel, read the first chapter and discussed how he came to write it, explaining that it was written from parts of his own childhood wanting to be a comedian.

At the end of the event, Harry selected 10 children to come up onto the stage to either tell a joke or perform an impression using a human Laugh-O-Meter. The winner of the best joke or impression won a copy of Matt Millz.

The children all hugely enjoyed the day and got the chance to pick up a copy of Harry’s book to take home.
