Ken Dodd celebrated his 60th anniversary as a professional entertainer in 2014, having made his debut in 1954 at the old Empire Theatre in Nottingham.
His famous Ken Dodd Happiness Show takes him on a virtual non stop tour of the country, clocking up thousands of miles every year, and this year includes a visit to Watford Colosseum at 7pm on Saturday May 7.
This comedian of unrivalled and legendary status has been entertaining audiences for a lifetime of happiness and laughter.
Patrons are invited to pop in and enjoy his Happiness Show where you are promised a truly tattifelarius (that’s Knotty Ash for fun-filled) evening of laughter and songs that will see you feeling discumknockerated (over the moon).
Ken Dodd became a major recording star in the 196-s with hits like Tears, Love Is Like A Violin and Happiness, which remains his signature tune today.
He is in the Guinness Book of records for telling 1,500 jokes in three and a half hours and has his own Giggle Map of Britain which tells him what makes people laugh in different parts of the country.
His famous tickling sticks are made specially for him and he gets through hundreds every year.
His critically acclaimed An Audience With Ken Dodd for ITV produced a five minute standing ovation from its star studded audience and has become one of the highest rating light entertainment shows of all time.
Such was the demand when it was first screened, it was repeated just six months later.
Tickets for Dodd’s show in Watford cost £24, with discounts available.
