"Doddy's a performer very much entrenched in the music hall style of his youth. A variety artist who studied his comedy heroes and created a persona has fuelled a career of over half-a-century. And to be fair, the concert hall audience, mostly of pensionable age, enjoyed the trips down memory lane. They sang along, they chuckled, and mostly, I think, they enjoyed how tattifilarious it all was."
