Series 5, Episode 6: Lady Dodd

The Lonely Arts Club

15-03-2023 • 1 hr 7 mins

As the saying goes, behind every great man, there's a great woman, and this was certainly the case for comedian, actor and all-round entertainer Sir Ken Dodd.

Famous for his fast-paced one liners, Ken's comedy genius meant that he became a household name, performing all the way throughout his life.

And the great lady always at his side, both on and off the stage? That would be Anne. In this very special episode of The Lonely Arts Club, we're joined by Lady  Dodd who shares with us the story of her and Ken; how they met, her love for performing also and what life was like being by the side of one of the nation's best loved comedians.
