Ken Dodd


December 1987, BBC Shepherds Bush Theatre, London Ken was mugging it up with his trademark 'tickling stick' from the get-go on this shoot and to be honest it was getting a bit tiresome. So I decided that some of just his face would be a better approach. "Ken, can we lose the feather duster please?" I innocently asked (because a feather duster is what it is). "IT'S NOT A FUCKING FEATHER DUSTER, IT'S A FUCKING TICKLING STICK" was the joyful and witty riposte from the leader of the Diddy Men. Oh how we laughed... nearly.
