Tommy Cooper (1921 - 1984) the magician was the undisputed master of daft jokes, that few other comedians would be able to deliver. A large man of 6 feet 4 inches, famous for wearing a red fez, he was instantly recognisable and quite unique as he delivered a non-stop dialogue of jokes and "failed" magic tricks. In his illustrated talk Steve Short will perform some of the magic that Tommy performed on television and revisit Cooper's unique brand of artistry to tell the story of a true clown prince of laughter and magic.
