The Real Ken Dodd - The Man I Loved!

Prince Of Wales Theatre
THE REAL KEN DODD – The Man I Loved is an exclusive feature documentary film which reveals for the first time the private man behind Britain’s greatest comic genius.

The film takes an in-depth look into Doddy’s private world exploring the many secrets of his comic talent, revealing never before seen home videos, stage performances and extracts from some of Ken’s diary notebooks which he’d asked his wife to burn after his death. Wrestling with her conscience for quite some time, Lady Dodd, finally agrees with many of Ken’s admirers like Stephen K Amos, Harry Hill, Lee Mack, Paul O’Grady, Johnny Vegas, and Sir Ian McKellen to preserve Doddy’s notebooks for posterity. These stars explore their passion and memories of Ken in this candid, insightful film which takes you backstage behind the red curtain to reveal a far more intriguing man than the public ever realised.

Narrated by Miriam Margolyes, a long-standing fan and friend who got her first big break working with Doddy, the fly-on-the-wall cameras follow Anne as she wrestles to preserve Ken’s enormous comic and musical legacy. Witness Lady Dodd as she embarks on a four-year odyssey to establish Doddy’s lifelong dream to build a British Comedy Museum. Along the way Dodd’s legacy helps create a new Shakespeare Northern Globe theatre and ensures that Ken has become the first comic to have a national museum exhibition celebrating his 70 years bringing “Happiness” to audiences across Britain.
