Comedy legend Les Dawson is making a comeback – 26 years after death

Les Dawson is to make a ­comeback 26 years after his death.

Two plays written by the legendary comic are set to be staged for the first time.

Millions of worldwide fans of Les’s deadpan humour will be delighted at the prospect of more.

The project is being engineered by his widow Tracy, 69.

She said: “Les wrote a lot of scripts before he died and there are two plays that still haven’t been used. One of them is a comedy.

"It’s set in a joke shop where they make silly wigs and stuff like that. I’ve read it and it’s very funny.

"The scripts are all about family.

“We need to bring both plays up to date but the one-liners are all there. We’ve got some good ideas.”

Tracy, who married the Blankety Blank game show host in 1989 after his first wife died, added: “I’ve been speaking to an agent about making it happen.

“I want to do it while I’m alive. There’s loads to do. We need to get a producer and a director who will take it on.”
