It's almost impossible not to be enchanted by Tommy Cooper. Corny gags, incomprehensible mumbling, daft impressions, bungled magic, and a perpetual look of bemused panic on his face - it's all here and it's all splendid. This disc collects the majority of Tommy's most famous sketches and routines, and... well, it's just Tommy being daft for an hour or so and that's exactly what you need sometimes. Watch it either on the level of simple and hilarious entertainment or look a bit deeper and marvel at how much timing and thought goes into Tommy's bungling character - this is truly immortal comedy.
