Tommy Cooper was a one-off. Not only a pure comic genius but actually a very accomplished magician too (although you could be forgiven for not entirely believing that from what's on show here).
It is unfortunate that this series concentrated more on showcasing his comedic talent. Further, the show's regular and 'special' guests seem to get as much airtime on stage as Tommy does. However, this DVD is pure unashamed retro-TV nostalgia, with the occasional glimpse of TC's genius shining through.
Buy this to see a showman at work. Watch as he 'works' the audience with ease.
The previous reviewer raises a fair point. However, this DVD deserves more than one star. Whilst maybe not fully deserving of the four stars I have awarded it either, the balance needed to be redressed.
