This review is from: Ken Dodd - The Laughter Show - Comedy Legend [DVD] (DVD)
Ken Dodd can do no wrong for me, not since I had lunch with him many years ago. I say "lunch" - nobody round the table could eat, as we were gasping for breath as the laughs kept coming incessantly for over 90 minutes. His legendary live shows (going on to the small hours) must be something like I experienced, but presumably at a slightly lower pace? There surely can't be anyone in entertainment who gives more value for money. Ok, occasionally the tattifilariousness of it all gets a bit corny, and I've never had much time for the cringeworthy Diddymen, but his relatively clean, quickfire barrage of jokes makes him Liverpool's Greatest Ambassador in my opinion. (And, yes, I AM including the Beatles there.) People don't often remember what a fantastic singing voice he has, too. Any Doddy footage from any year will always deliver, and this is just another one in my collection. I know he's not going to be around much longer, performing or not, so I'm going to make sure I stay up-to-date with him, and if there's any more "tax dodge" gags to come from his (own, self mickey-taking) mouth, I want to hear them!
