I bet all of the old comedians up above will be "tickled " that he has joined them. RIP Mr "Happiness".
My wife read that he finally married his lifelong fiance 2 days before he died, any truth in that?

Indeed he did Ontarian March 9th.. Amazingly he died in the house he was born in, never moved and lived in the same house for 90yrs, you would think with all his wealth he would have moved at some point.
A truly great comic. R.I.P.

.......says more about your mate than Doddy!..........I'm sure he would have done some cash in hand jobs........but I'm also pretty sure he would have contributed more in tax to the running of this country than any of the political miseries on here!

Yeah,at least Ken never became a tax exile like a lot of celebrities, i.e. living abroad to avoid UK taxes, and most of them were knighted a long time before Doddy. Examples like Tom Jones, Sean Connery, and many more who also did it whilst in their prime earning years in the 60s and 70's.

A great, great man. I saw his show several times over the years. What a performer. There will never be another, esp. as the opportunities for gaining experience in WMCs have disappeared too. He was on BBC Radio 4Extra tonight in an already-scheduled repeat of a 1970s programme.

Best line about him, posted by someone elsewhere: his funeral will be on Wednesday. And Thursday. And Friday. And part of Saturday...
