LES DAWSON
KEN DODD

TOMMY COOPER
Tommy's earliest trick was with a milk bottle. During the course of the trick he was supposed to turn it up-side-down, but when he did the trick, the milk came pouring out along with the audiences laughter. That got Tommy Cooper thinking, I can get applause through making tricks go wrong - deliberately. 'Always leave them laughing'.

KENNY EVERETT
Snapped up by BBC Radio 1, Everett pioneered the role of disc jockey as popular entertainer, with nonsensical jingles, scatological extemporizations and wild lunges at figures of authority. From the late 1970s Everett was much in evidence on television. Diminutive and bearded, with receding hair and wildly rotating eyes, he presided over an hysterical melange of music and fustian lampoon, laden with innuendo. His zenith in this line came with The Kenny Everett Video Show and The Kenny Everett Television Show.

FRANKIE HOWERD
Frankie Howerd was one of the great survivors of British comedy. His television debut followed in the three-part series The Howerd Crowd, written by Eric Sykes, who first worked with Howerd on Variety Bandbox and became a pivotal figure in Howerd's success throughout the 1950s. During his career Frankie had made a number of 'concert' programs. East of Howerd and Frankie Howerd in Ulster showed him entertaining British troops in Borneo and Northern Ireland respectively.

LES DAWSON
Les Dawson was a popular English comedian, remembered for his deadpan style, curmudgeonly persona and jokes about his mother-in-law and wife. Dawson began his entertainment career as a pianist. He was to find that he got laughs by playing wrong notes and complaining to the audience. He made his television debut on the talent show Opportunity Knocks in 1967 and became a prominent comic on British television for the rest of his life.

KEN DODD
Dodd's stand-up comedy style is fast and relies on the rapid delivery of one-liner jokes. He has claimed that his comic influences include other Liverpool comedians like Arthur Askey, Robb Wilton, and Tommy Handley. He intersperses the comedy with occasional songs, both serious and humorous, in an incongruously fine light baritone voice.
