Recreates Tommy Cooper's final performance
This article is from 2011.
Eschewing a biographical narrative, this show about stage magician and comedian Tommy Cooper simply recreates his final performance in all its balmy, cheeky glory. It’s a crowd-pleasing celebration of the utterly unique variety show talent, and Clive Mantle does a terrific job of impersonating him. And, rather than glossing over Cooper’s death on stage, the show embraces it and keeps its audience laughing.
Assembly Hall, 623 3030, until 29 Aug, 5.30pm, £14–£15 (£13–£14).
