Packed with classic lines and hilarious routines, Being Tommy Cooper is a celebration of Britain's favourite comedian and an exploration of his darker side.

The play also tells the story of three other people in Tommy's life. There's his dour Scottish manager Miff Ferrie, with whom Tommy is locked in what he calls "a hate-hate relationship". We meet Billy Glason, a onetime vaudeville act who has set himself the almost impossible task of selling Cooper a huge collection of jokes. And, finally, there is Mary Kay – the woman who Tommy fell in love with and came to rely on. There was only one woman she couldn't compete with: Tommy's wife. This excellent cast brings the Tommy Cooper legend vividly to life in this award-nominated production.

“Brave in its mission, Being Tommy Cooper is a slick, emotive and thoroughly entertaining portrait of one of the most popular comics of the 20th century.” British Theatre Guide

“The play is full of great comedy but also some high drama...a must see for fans of Cooper.” WhatsOnStage

“Highly recommended ... a thought-provoking portrayal of a man who will always be loved by millions, yet wasn’t quite what he seemed.” Blackpool Gazette

“A fascinating insight into how one man can simultaneously be a national hero and his own worst enemy” York Press
