Author(s): Ian Carroll
Britain’s best-loved comedian, Tommy Cooper, is celebrated in a tale that weaves the life and magic together for the first time.
A man who could make people laugh without opening his mouth, and reduce audiences to fits of laughter with his sheer physical presence, this is the book that fans of Tommy Cooper have been waiting for.
The story weaves biography with the gags and comic routines of this giant of British comedy. Was he a magician or a comedian, or simply the best – and sometimes worst – of both? Cooper’s best remembered jokes are here as well as long-forgotten routines that return on the page to set you giggling afresh.
If you loved the man’s humour or simply want to find out the secrets of his success, Cooperman! The Life of Tommy Cooper is the ultimate guide to the greatest comedian that Britain has ever produced with unpublished photographs and anecdotes provided by the family and estate.
