Comedy Carpet

Promenade Blackpool FY1 1NE

UK humour in all its glorious hilarity, profundity and downright battiness is celebrated at Blackpool's latest piece of public art, and indeed one of the largest pieces of public art commissioned in the country to date. Over two thousand square metres of seafront promenade opposite the Tower is given over to the jokes, lyrics, catchphrases and routines of a thousand writers, comedians and performers, presented in a Walk of Fame-style all-weather "carpet" that mimics the playbills of old. It was unveiled in 2011 by inimitable master of mirth Ken Dodd, and he and everyone else you can think of is here, from vintage music-hall artists to contemporary sitcom stars. If you can't find something to make you smile, you're probably not British; and you may even have the great Doddy himself after you. As he says, "If you don't laugh at the jokes I'll follow you home and shout through the letterbox".
