I met him once, about 15 years ago when I worked in Liverpool at a software company. He was quite tall, and very ebullient. Seemed like a really nice man. I had my photo taken with him and he kept hugging me! Poor old Doddie! Another great entertainer gone.

RIP Ken Dodd....a comedy legend.

I think if anyone sits through one of his TV specials thinking they are not going to laugh at loud throughout....they would get a surprise.
He was genuinely funny, and according to every single person I have heard speaking about him, was a genuinely nice man too. x

My mum loved him. She especially loved his song 'tears'. I wasn't a fan.

He had a good long life, and never suffered at the end.
