Sir Ken Dodd has passed away at the grand age of 90. He was most known for his is very long stand-up shows, along with his Diddy Men and the tickling stick.
On Friday, he'd married his partner of 40 years, Anne James, at their home in Liverpool.

I didn't know much about him but it's always sad when someone dies. Hope it was peaceful.

Aka the Professor of Mirthology, Sir Ken Dodd was possibly so quick-fire, so effervescent, sometimes so silly, and so distinctive looking, that the range of his topics married to a joy of British life sometimes got overlooked . Yes, thank God, we do have other comedians who can do similar things, or if you combined a few of them together they could, but not with his bearing and old-school naturalness and lack of need to ever act cool- instead , he was a bit - or a lot- of a romantic. So called 'old fashioned' comedy has never gone out of fashion with the working class and children for two and comics like Bobby Davro, Les Dennis, Joe Pasquale have lasted for not a small number of years themselves. Reeves and Mortimer might have kick started visual surrealism in British comedy again which, via the likes of Harry Hill and Tim Vine might have, in a way, helped Ken Dodd's visual humour gain new audiences. I trust that he's sharing a drink upstairs.Last edited by Picnic1; 12-03-2018 at 13:43.
