Dick Emery: Jack Of Diamonds Fan Tributes
6 sean fennelly from Ireland: I'm trying to fond out how I can purchase this masterpiece ...can anyone enlighten me?
5 Brett Fairbairn from Australia: Dick Emery was brilliant. I loved it when he played the young lout, or the tough old lady, or the kindly vicar. Thinking back, I can remember times when I was almost rolling around the floor laughing at his antics and facial expressions. Unfortunately his shows have not appeared in Australia (as far as I am aware) for many years now...I have been hassling Foxtel and UKTV to put him on again...
4 N.J.Platten from Hull, East Yorks England: Hi
Dick Emery for me was a man who had a fantastic gift, that gift was versatility, for making people laugh. He stands heads above comics,today.
He could play anybody in a comedy situation from vicar to tramp, needless to say that famous character, Mandy who I've got for my wallpaper on my computer.
When this man died a big piece of comedy magic from his era went with him.
This chap was a comedy genious who was vastly underated and in my opinion was one of our very own grown clowns.
We miss you.
3 Stuart Allen from Isle of Wight: I was the producer/director of this programme. Dick Emery was the kindest and one of the most talented artistes I ever worked with in my career in Television. Sadly his death prevented me from working on another series with him although we had talked about it.
2 stephen stacey from scotland: The best part of Dick Emery Jack Of Diamonds is when winestock gets a grenade in his lap!!
1 Neil Gray from Bedfordshire: One of Dick Emery's best series showing how he'd managed to develop his comedy into dramatic comic art!
