30 Greatest Moments: Ken Dodd | Channel 5 | 2022
This heartfelt, two-hour celebration pays tribute to one of the most distinctive and adored British comedians of all time: comic, singer, actor (everything from Dr Who to Shakespeare), creator of the Diddymen and knight of the realm, Doddy. Equipped with his trademark set of buck teeth and tickling stick, he was a man who simply lived to make people laugh. Harking back to his music hall era heroes, he was often hailed as the Scouse Bruce Springsteen of live comedy, regularly putting on intimate one-man shows lasting up to five hours. A large cast of friends, colleagues and fans from down the years give their personal insights, including David Hamilton, Scouse poet Roger McGough, and genuine super-fans and fellow Scousers Ricky Tomlinson and David Morrissey.
