Tommy Cooper was a true comic genius. His impeccable timing, misfiring magic, trademark fez and quick-fire gags made him an international star.
This ALL-ENCAPSULATING SHOW features John Hewer giving “a remarkably faithful performance” (Time Out) as he “captures the Cooper style, from mumbled speech and loud laughter to the awkward giant body language” (The Stage) and delivering “nuances both obvious and subtle” (Everything Theatre) as the man in the fez.
Complete with live musical accompaniment, this CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED TRIBUTE is full of magic and mirth and is the perfect celebration of Britain’s favourite comedian.
