Product Description

Marking a phenomenally successful fifty years in showbiz, this DVD set celebrates the talents of Cilla Black, one of Britain's most charismatic and best-loved celebrities.

In Cilla's Comedy Six, the Liverpudlian singer and comedienne dipped a toe into the world of acting in a series of humorous vignettes in which she portrayed a range of female roles. From Mrs. Average Housewife (mid-'70s style) to a temp fending off the amorous advances of her latest boss, from a woman caring for her widowed father to a round-the-world yachtswoman, Cilla's versatility and mischievous, warm humour shine through in a range of everyday (and not so everyday!) heroines who combine tenacity, resourcefulness and wit. Originally screened in 1975, a time when Cilla was making the transition from successful singer to TV celebrity, Cilla's Comedy Six is available here for the first time. Its companion series - Cilla's World of Comedy - is also available.

5.0 out of 5 stars About Time!! 14 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase
About time that this brilliant comedy series was released onto dvd. Read the other day that Cilla is about to do her first acting role. Excuse me, what about this series plus Cilla's World Of Comedy which followed shortly afterwards. Although the series shows dated sets etc. you can still see why Cilla was chosen to receive numerous awards for her comedy acting roles. All we need now is for her film Work Is A Four Letter Word to be released!!

Well worth the money and was a great pleasure to watch.

By Mr. K
Britain's chart-topping pop singer made her transition into television in 1968 with her very own BBC TV variety show "Cilla". By the mid-1970s and after seven record breaking seasons at the Beeb Cilla Black signed a new deal with production company ATV (Associated Television/ITV). The deal offered Cilla the chance to dip her toe into the world of situation comedy and her husband Bobby the position of Executive Producer.

`Cilla's Comedy Six` was the first of two series made for ATV (the 2nd being "Cilla's World of Comedy - The Complete Series [DVD]"). Filming began in late 1974 and the series was broadcast on ITV at the start of the following year. The response from British viewers and the critics alike was very positive as millions tuned in to watch Cilla star in her new role as ITV's "prime-time" comedy actress. This popularity continued thereafter with each of the six plays charting the weekly `Top 10' poll of "most watched" British TV programmes. A few months after the first series ended Cilla received "Britain's Top Female Comedy Star" award by the Writer's Guild.

A generation out there will likely have never seen this series before - as it has not been repeated over the years and instead disappeared into the vaults at ITV. What I will say is if you are a fan of seventies nostalgia then you will likely enjoy the humour of these plays. If not, you may find them at times a bit dated and wooden as the scripts and style of comedy was very much of the time. If I'm honest I don't think the stories aged as well as some of what you see on better known British comedy classics like "The Good Life" and "Are You Being Served".
