Scribbles The-Boomers # 6

In tribute to Sir Ken Dodd

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

I had an idyllic childhood and when my parents bought me a Punch and Judy Show and a ventriloquist’s dummy, I’d perform anywhere, anytime. My parents were wonderful when I told them I wanted to be an entertainer.

Laughter is the greatest music in the world and audiences come to my shows to escape the cares of life. They don’t want to be embarrassed or insulted. They want to laugh and so do I – which is probably why it works.
