The man from Knotty Ash bows out at 90.
Only married his partner of 40 years Anne on Friday.
RIP Ken.

I never liked his type of humour but he had a successful long career. RIP

" I told the Inland Revenue I didn't owe them a penny,as I live by the Sea"😁

I admired him mostly for his endless work for deprived children, and children's homes.I believe over the years  lot of his own money was donated to them.

His sows in Scarborough used to last hours.
He certainly gave people their money's worth.
Another of those 'always been there' generation.
Not many left now 😖

I think that's a pathetic statement, in fact downright disgraceful.

This is sad statement and you should be ashamed of yourself.

I was lucky enough to see Ken Dodd a few years ago, I laughed so much my sides hurt, he never stopped with his fast funny one liners. No smut no bad language. It is a sad loss to entertainment.

Also I saw a programme about him being interviewed by Fern Britton, a caring man, deeply religious. It showed a side to a man we would never have seen from just looking at him when he was working.

Only ever seen him on the telly and it is unforgivable not to pay taxes as these support those in need. However the courts decided that he shouldn't go to prison unlike Lester Piggot. However that can be forgiven if he donated lots of money to children's charities. As long as he has done more good than bad RIP

Was never a fan until I heard a live show on radio that he did. The speed of his delivery was impressive. The last of the great music hall type acts. A great showman that appealed to many.
