Sir Ken Dodd. I think today, everyone has said it over and over again, he is the last of the comedy greats, it is a sad day for Music Hall’s and theatre’s throughout the country. Always the gentlemen, always the professional, always the performer. It did not matter how sore his legs were or how tired he was after the journey to Scotland, when the band played his opening number he lit up brighter than a Christmas tree.
We will miss his annual visit to the theatre, I will personally miss him shouting up to me; “Hi Mr Iain.” I thank him for always choosing the Pavilion for his shows in Glasgow and I learned more from him over the years than any other performer.
Thank you Sir Ken it has been a pleasure to work with you and thank you from all our customers who returned year after year, some with their flasks and a sandwich, as they got ready for a long but hilarious night of entertainment.
“He Tried and did his Best.”
Here’s to you Sir!
