The definitive TV moments of Tommy Cooper’s Comedy Career.
Tommy Cooper is well-remembered as one of the funniest British comedians ever. With his red fez and daft catch phrases usually delivered after another magic trick had gone wrong, he tapped into the nation’s funny bone. This hilarious compilation includes many of his finest comedic moments and illustrates why he is still regarded as a Master of Comedy. One of Britain’s best-loved comics, Cooper was a top-liner in variety with his turn as the conjurer whose tricks never succeeded, but it was his television work that raised him to national prominence. He was popular with audiences for nearly 40 years, notably through his work with London Weekend Television from 1968 to 1972 and with Thames Television from 1973 to 1980. Thanks to his many television shows during the mid-1970s, he was one of the most recognisable comedians in the world.
A statue of Cooper was unveiled in his birthplace of Caerphilly, Wales, in 2008 by fellow Welsh entertainer Sir Anthony Hopkins, who is patron of the Tommy Cooper Society. In a 2005 poll, The Comedians’ Comedian, Cooper was voted the sixth greatest comedy act ever by comedians and comedy insiders.
