The Tommy Cooper Show (ADENUF Productions)

By | Published on Thursday 14 August 2014

With music, magic and magnificent impressions, ‘The Tommy Cooper Show’ has it all! The audience cried with laughter as they were taken on a journey through the life and career of one of comedy’s giants. The cast of three gelled together wonderfully and even managed to evoke genuine emotion during some of the darker moments of Coopers life. Sharon Byatts performance as Gwen Cooper, his wife of 37 years, was particularly poignant, and quite possibly one of the best performances Ive seen at the Fringe this year. Packed with quick firing one-liners, ADENUF take a fond (but honest) look at the life of a man who entertained a generation. Hilarious, endearing and perfect for any Tommy Cooper fan.

Spotlites @ The Merchants Hall, until 25 Aug.
