Dick Emery At Thames Television

"Hello, honky-tonks! How're you?"

A regular on television over four decades, Dick Emery was one of Britain's comedy giants. A natural mimic and man of many guises, his comic brilliance created many memorable characters - including the incomparably thick Bovver Boy, doddery old git Lampwick, the incredibly toothy Vicar and the unforgettably camp Clarence!

Though most of his output was for the BBC, Emery made three high popular variety specials for Thames Television at the turn of the '80s. Featuring a new cast of flamboyant creations alongside his vintage comic favourites, these shows also feature the talents of Beryl Reid, Lulu, The Three Degrees and Dad's Army's Bill Pertwee; Dam Busters star Richard Todd helps recreate some famous PoW adventures and Lynda Carter just about manages to hold her own among Emery's very own Wonder Women - busty bombshell Mandy, man-eating spinster Hettie, and the ever-popular Duchess!
