..but I like you! This was always a firm family favourite at my house in the 70's. As a kid I used to find all his comic characters really funny.
This isn't the sort of show that gets repeats though, like The Two Ronnies and Morcam and Wise. To be honest, you can see why, it didn't age very well.
Emery sure liked dressing up as a woman though, and his nazi is still very funny! Excellent nostalgia for any thirty somethings out there, and as there are very few repeats on TV, seeing Emery again really stirs up the dim memories of child hood :)
