Ken Dodd Receives Knighthood
Sir Ken Dodd receives knighthood at the age of 89 for charity work and his outstanding career in entertainment lasting more than six decades.
The investiture comes 25 years after he was first awarded an OBE for services to show business and charity.
Dressed in a morning suit and top hat the comedian told press before he entered Buckingham Palace that he felt like ‘a racehorse in the stalls, just sweating a little – apprehensive but highly tickled’.
Sir Ken Dodd will be performing at Blackpool Grand Theatre, Sundays 1 8 15 22 October.
He is a multi-award winning entertainer, so don’t miss his fun-filled Happiness Show for all the family. With a supporting company, non-stop gags and a selection of songs presented in Ken’s uniquely versatile style: everything from ballads to grand opera!
