The Art Of Tommy Cooper
BBC Wales documentary on the life and work of the magician and comedy legend Tommy Cooper
Tommy Cooper was a national comedy institution whose catchphrase still remains in the language today. This bumbling giant with outsized feet and hands, whose mere entrance on stage had audiences erupting with uncontrollable laughter, was born in Caerphilly in 1921.
Our Review: Short but affectionate, The Art Of Tommy Cooper presents a very personal perspective of the legendary comic, interviewing as it does fellow comics such as Barry Cryer and Tom O'Connor, down to one of Tommy's cousins - and even his bank manager. A delightfully nostalgic programme.
