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.
