RIP Ken Dodd
Started by: mindar (520) Report abuse
The BBC is reporting that comedy legend Sir Ken Dodd has died at home aged 90, just two days after marrying his partner of 40 years.

This is a final two fingers to the taxman, as there’s no inheritance tax on estates left to a spouse.

I remember my kids going seeing him, and his Diddy men, open Stewart Paul's in Pemberton.

R.I.P Ken..

A great entertainer and comedy legend.
I have seen him several times, his act went on for hours LOL
He never resorted to crude humour and rude language, but did do 'innuendo'.
RIP Sir Ken.

A very funny comedian who didn't have to resort to crude filthy language to get folks laughing. RIP Ken.

"What a beautiful day for sticking a cucumber through a letterbox and
shouting 'Help the martians have landed'."

I never saw him live but Ken Dodd always tickled me when he appeared on TV. R.I.P.

My favourite comedian of all time,I can't raise a titter with the new ones.

I laughed until I cried watching his live shows.Remember arriving home from Southport Theatre at 1.30 a.m. after one of his marathon shows.What a wonderful entertainer, and such a lovely singing voice. He was a legend! Dickie Mint and the rest of the Diddymen will be crying over their jam butties tonight. R.I.P

I have just read your original post.

Canny old sod!

Fair play to him I say - he did nothing illegal.

Posted by: mindar (520) Report abuse
I agree.

I remember my mother and aunt on holiday staying until the end of his show. Arriving back at their hotel they found it had been locked for the night.
Yes, he certainly could hold an audience.

My favourite Doddy-ism - “What a lovely day missis. What a lovely day for sticking a brush steel up Nigel Mansell’s trouser leg and saying ‘how’s that for pole position’”

There's loads and loads to pick from, never needed to use bad language or come out with sick comments about the less fortunate for the sake of getting people to laugh

Ha ha Missis, what a wonderful day for filling the wife's tights
with jelly and custard then trifling with her affections!

RIP Doddy
