The Funniest Doddisms


Sir Ken Dodd has sadly died aged 90.


And there's no better way to celebrate his career than reliving the funniest Doddisms he produced.



"My Dad knew I was going to be a comedian. When I was a baby he said, “Is this a joke?"


"I haven’t spoken to my mother-in-law for eighteen months. I don’t like to interrupt her."


"Just read a book about Stockholm Syndrome. It started off badly but by the end I really liked it."



"It’s ten years since I went out of my mind. I’d never go back."


"I told the Inland Revenue I didn’t owe them a penny because I lived near the seaside."



‘I’ve done some brave things in my time. I played Nottingham Labour Club. I was the one who shouted “Three cheers for Mrs Thatcher”. And it was during the bingo.’


"Do I believe in safe sex? Of course I do. I have a handrail around the bed."



"Fifty-five years in show business, ladies and gentlemen. That's a hell of a long time to wait for a laugh."


"How many men does it take to change a toilet roll? Nobody knows. It's never been tried."


Thanks for everything, Sir Ken.
