"What a beautiful day to go up to Count Von Zeppelin and saying to him
"You'll never sell a sausage that size"".
God bless you Ken.
A true legend.

RIP Ken Dodd
had a truly British way of making the best of things
When the smoke has cleared and the bullets cease, another soldier rests in peace. The politicians who caused the fight, rest at home no danger in sight.

Sad, sad loss, I saw him many years ago in a summer show at Bournemouth way back in the 60's. I still have happy memories of that evening.

Before I moved to the Wirrall Peninsula I Lived in Poulton Le Fylde, I was a member of The In Front of House
Team at Blackpool Grand Theatre. I had the priviledge of seeing Doddy thoughout the year and especially on a Sunday night, you knew you were in for a long night when Doddy brought his Thermos Flask and placed it on the stage.

I have downloaded this performance off the net hope you enjoy.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXbM9qmJ6VM This was broadcast at The Royal Variety Performance
much better quality than the the broadcast from The Grand at Blackpool 12 minutes.

Ken Dodd loved the music hall so I have also included this performance.

He had a great long life. Although I DO have a sense of humour, I never found him funny. We can't all like the same things, I guess. 'The cash in the suitcase in the attic' made me smile tho'.

Apart from a couple of comedians all is left are these comedians who swear and think its funny & so do the audience!
I have a GSOH but sometimes I watch live at the Apollo and think why are audience wetting themselves!!?

With you all the way. Blackcat. Old humour was sooooo much better than Michael Bl--dy Macintyre shouting and leaping about the stage telling the audience about his wife's birthday b..w jobs!!.

Knotty Ash is an area of Liverpool where Sir Ken grew up and the Diddy Men, although attributed to him actually go further back in local history/mythology. His act I believe was mainly aimed at children.
