Ken Dodd Mural Liverpool

Ken Dodd Mural Liverpool

 Ken Dodd mural 

Sir Ken Dodd, Knotty Ash's most famous son, brought joy and laughter to the people for decades. These two murals, paying tribute to a comedy great, were a collaboration with Liverpool's Royal Court Theatre and The Comedy Trust.

One depicts Sir Ken in his trademark pastel blue suit and tickling stick. He is pictured on a seaside promenade - a nod to the seaside theatres where Mr Dodd plied his trade for so long in his early career.


The second mural is really a bit of font play with the lyrics to Ken's biggest musical hit, the song - Happiness. A couple of the Diddy Men are taking care of word placement and the finishing touches.

These murals were painted by Liverpool artist, Paul Curtis. They were unveiled at a press gathering by Sir Ken's widow, Lady Anne Dodd in March 2020.
