Tommy Cooper - The Complete LWT Series

With his uniquely chaotic blend of fluffed magic and lame jokes, Tommy Cooper was a constant and instantly recognisable presence on television for four decades. A firm favourite with the public, his variety shows were always eagerly awaited - Eric Sykes hailed Tommy as the "funniest man in the world", so it's hardly surprising that it was noted "he only had to walk on stage to cause hysterics"!

First transmitted fifty years ago, Cooper's series for London Weekend Television followed hot on the heels of his phenomenally successful three-year-run of Life With Cooper and set him firmly on the path to television super-stardom through the 1970s and beyond.

This classic sketch series features a veritable galaxy of guest stars: Ted Ray, Stubby Kaye, Richard Briers, Arthur Lowe, Joan Greenwood, Bernard Cribbins, Patrick Cargill, Tricia Noble, Vincent Price, Michael Bentine, Ronnie Barker, Thora Hird, Diana Dors, Ronnie Corbett, Liz Fraser and Eric Sykes. This release contains all thirteen episodes, complete and uncut.
