Steal a glimpse into the personal world of a great British comedian when Being Tommy Cooper comes to Milton Keynes Theatre for one night only on Wednesday.
The show transports audiences to Las Vegas, 1954, when the then up-and-coming Tommy Cooper, struggling to get by, finds an offer on the table and a drink in his hand.
Tom Green’s play explores the relationship Tommy had with his manager, the (sometimes stormy) relationship he had with his wife, his drinking and his temper.
The man in the red fez, who could make people laugh just by walking on stage, is brought vividly to life by Damian Williams in this powerful, provocative and painfully funny new play.
Williams is faced with the daunting task of capturing Britain’s most famous comedian both as a comic and as a man - replicating his stellar act and giving an insight into the moments when he is not “on” and playing up to his audiences but just being himself.
