The Comedy Trust has teamed up with National Museums Liverpool, the Ken Dodd Charitable Foundation, Radio Merseyside, Knotty Ash Productions and Liverpool’s Royal Court to create a celebration of Liverpool’s famous son.

Doddy Day will take place on Sir Ken’s birthday weekend, November 7.

The centrepiece will be The Happiness Show in the afternoon at Liverpool’s Royal Court, with Les Dennis confirmed and more being added to the line-up every day. Tickets will be £10 with all profits re-invested in future Doddy Day events.

The Comedy Trust has been using comedy as a tool to aid health and wellbeing since it was founded in Liverpool in 2002 and will be running a series of workshops on the day.
