Literary Birthday – 22 July – Jeremy Lloyd

Jeremy Lloyd was born 22 July 1930 and died 23 December 2014.

Three Quotes

  1. Laughter crosses boundaries of class and age… Humour is universal.
  2. You never write a catchphrase; you never write something and say, ‘This is going to be a catchphrase.’ You just write the show, and then in the course of the show, somebody says something, and for some reason it gets a laugh.
  3. As a result of my life on the road and the increasing number of rainy afternoons in cinemas, I began to get the idea that I might write a film.

John Jeremy Lloyd was an English writer, screenwriter, author, poet, and actor. He was best known as co-author and writer of several successful British sitcoms, including Are You Being Served? and ‘Allo ‘Allo!.
