Doddy’s still jok­ing aged 90

The Sunday Post (Inverness) - - News -

Ken Dodd turns 90 on Wed­nes­day but in­sists he has no in­ten­tions of re­tir­ing.

The vet­eran fun­ny­man still reg­u­larly per­forms live shows of more than three hours.

“I’m told that be­fore I go out on stage, I look my age,” he said. “Once I’m there I sud­denly turn into a 32-year-old.”

Doddy has been at the top for more than 60 years and still lives in the same ram­bling man­sion at Knotty Ash, Liver­pool, where he grew up.

“It is older than me,” he joked. “My house was built in 1782, the year be­fore I was born.”

The co­me­dian said his big break came in 1965 when he made it to the Pal­la­dium in Lon­don, which was then the tem­ple of show­busi­ness.
