Sue Baker's view...

Two books in one, The Tommy Cooper Joke Book and Tommy Cooper’s Secret Joke Files make this the ultimate Cooperfest. With a long and illuminating introduction from the compiler John Fisher this is more than a book of jokes. Tommy Cooper maintained a huge joke file and many of the jokes are shown as he collected them, odd typing and all. And perhaps best of all, some of his routines are reproduced so you can read it in his voice, with the pauses, the props, remembering the physical actions that could turn the plainest of jokes into priceless laughter.

Synopsis

Tommy Cooper All in One Joke Book Book Joke, Joke Book by Tommy Cooper

My wife is a magician, yesterday she turned our car into a tree. A big white horse walks into a pub. The barman says, 'we have a drink named after you.' The horse says, 'what? Eric?' I said, 'waiter, what's that in my soup?' he said, 'I'd better call the boss, I can't tell one insect from another.' I'm reading a book called 'Sex Before 20'. Personally I don't like audiences. I said, 'it's serious, doctor, I've broken my arm in 20 places'. He said, 'well stop going to those places.' I call my car flattery. It gets me nowhere.

About the Author

Tommy Cooper died on stage at Her Majesty's Theatre, London, twenty-five years ago in April 1984 and is still revered today as probably the greatest comedian of the second half of the 20th century. More than just a comedian, Tommy Cooper was a born entertainer. Working in a golden age of British comedy, Cooper stood - literally - head and shoulders above the crowd, and had a magical talent for humour that defied description. With a love of laughter stemming from a magic performance gone wrong when he was in his teens, Cooper enlisted in the army in 1939 and began to perfect his comic timing on his army colleagues in the Egyptian desert. The man with the fez was born.
