Shame on the BBC compiler who was involved!,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Best of Dick Emery [DVD] (DVD)
Best of? Beg to differ! Whilst all Dick Emery is enjoyable, (and hence this is still worth getting for "something"), what a wasted opportunity! In 80 mins. they only managed one "Mandy" clip, and even that does not have the trademark "stumble" afterwards! (That's the woman who does "Ooh you are awful", by the way - probably his best known catchphrase, to everyone except the compiler, that is.) They could have easily squeezed in another 30-sec. "Mandy" here and there. After all, other characters appear several times. A few of the sketches are WAY too long for a compilation. Anyway, if you can get it cheap, do so - if only for the sublime train waiting room sketch! PS - just noticed : even the back of the box says Mandy is his most famous character, so they back up what I say. Shameful!!!
