Ken Dodd, Hunstanton

There is just no stopping this master of mirth, who had a capacity audience at the Princess Theatre eating out of his hand.

The King of the Diddymen resumed his love affair with Sunny Hunny with three shows that were all sold out months ago and how his audiences loved him. The show moved at such a pace, with gags coming thick and fast, that few of us watching him on Friday noticed that it was Saturday morning before we left the theatre!

A living legend, he must surely rate as one of Britain's top comics – and he doesn't have to resort to blue humour to get his laughs. The five-hour serving of saucy humour of the seaside postcard type won a standing.

After a near 50-year career, Dodd retains an enthusiasm that belies his age and almost defies belief.

His material covers almost everything under the sun – politics, medical matters, the work place, you name it and Doddy has a gag for it.

With appearances by pianist and singer Sybie Jones and talented

all-round entertainer Andy Eastwood it was an evening packed with

much-missed, old-style entertainment.

Dodd is king of the feel-good factor and as they filed out the audience was still laughing and recalling favourite gags.
