Ken Dodd RIP

We woke up to the news this morning that Sir Ken Dodd has passed away, aged 90. Ken was an absolute comedy legend, from Knotty Ash, Liverpool. As my friend Andrew Lancel put it, “The Beatles are the heart beat of the city of Liverpool. Ken Dodd is the funny bone.”

The Beatles appeared on stage and on TV with Ken on many occasions. Here is a great interview from 1963

I feel like pushing a cucumber through a neighbour’s letterbox and shouting, ‘The Martians are coming!’ (Doddy Joke)

Here is a nice Obituary from the BBC
