Ernie Wise

Posted in: News on October 4, 2018.

Our auction on Saturday October 27th will include some unique items relating to local comedy superstar the late Ernie Wise OBE, with the lots comprising some unusual awards that he had received during his career, as well as a life-size bust of the comedian. Morecambe and Wise received numerous awards of course, but perhaps the ‘SPAM’ and ‘Grand Order of Water Rats’ awards are not those that would readily spring to mind when recalling their career. These items are supplemented by some more traditional awards in the collection, such as a Sun Television trophy from 1973 and a BBC TV ‘Auntie’s All Time Greats’ trophy from 1996. Also on offer are personally dedicated items from the Royal Variety Club and a silver cigarette box, engraved with a dedication from the renowned theatre agent Billy Marsh.
