Kenneth Arthur Dodd, OBE (born 8 November 1927) is a British comedian, singer-songwriter and actor, famous for his frizzy hair or “fluff dom” and buck teeth or “denchers”, his favourite cleaner, the feather duster (or “tickling stick”) and his greeting of “How tickled I am!”, as well as his send-off “Lots and lots of happiness!”. He works mainly in the music hall tradition, although, in the past, has occasionally appeared in drama, including as Malvolio in Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night on stage in Liverpool in 1971; on television in the cameo role of ‘The Tollmaster’ in the 1987 Doctor Who story Delta and the Bannermen; and as Yorick (in silent flashback) in Kenneth Branagh’s film version of Shakespeare’s Hamlet in 1996. In the 1960s his fame was such that he rivalled the Beatles as a household name. Submit News Contact us with your community, business or sport news.
