TOPIC: Ken Dodd
#174450
In The Know

Ken Dodd 3 Months, 1 Week ago  
Sadly passed away, aged 90. He's one of the few that could be called a true legend.

He died in the same house that he was born in ... and only married his partner of 40 years, last Friday.

There will be a lot more jollity in Heaven from now on .....

What a comic he was. I think only George Harrison got the better of him:

Ken: I think I need a more earthy-sounding name.
George: Sod Dodd!


A nice tribute here:

Reading another message board earlier - yes, there is another !!! - and what struck me was that there was total agreement about what a nice man Dodd was.

Usually - even after death ! - there will be some distracotrs but not in this case.

I wonder when the funeral is? - I bet the city will come to a standstill.

We are due another visit to Liverpool (planning to be there for the tall ships in May)

catching up on a few old Youtube videos of him..wonderful performer and just realised he was like Frankie Howerd in many ways..less camp and far more cheerful but similar humour.
