Sir Ken Dodd,(1927-2018) was an English comedian, singer-songwriter and occasional actor, identified by his unruly hair and protruding teeth, his red, white and blue "tickling stick" and his upbeat greeting of "How tickled I am!"
He created the characters of the Diddy Men ("diddy" being an informal British word for "small"). His stage career lasted over sixty years, and he continued to perform, when his health permitted, until his death at the age of 90.
A friend of magic, Dodd was had magicians appear on his show "The Ken Dodd Show".
