Ken Dodd is just terrific! Watched him on TV many times when in the UK, and on two occasions have seen his full-evening show. Both occasions with Amy and Eddie Dawes, and Eddie once arranged a visit with Doddy backstage after the show. Pat and I both found him funny as hell, and a very pleasant chap to meet. As to 'understanding,' him; well, I can see why some Americans would have a bit of a problem. Remember, however, he's a 'Northern' comedian, and even puzzles some of the folk from the southern UK. I never found it a problem. I say Hooray for K.D., and hope some day to be able to see him in person again.
