Interview: Jason Manford on Tommy Cooper

Jason Manford has done a little bit of acting in the past.

Not that you would recognise Threlfall, who is totally convincing as the lumbering comedy magician. And you might take a moment to recognise Manford, who sports heavy spectacles, kipper tie, braces and cardigan as trick-devising magician Ken Brooke.

Book Review: Funny Way To Be A Hero by John Fisher

Funny Way To Be A Hero was first published in 1973. Since then comedy has changed beyond recognition. Or has it?

Opinion: TV's Tommy Cooper Drama – Finding The Funny Side?

Update 3/6/13 Just heard today that comedian Joe Lycett has been cast as Dustin Gee in this project below. This is interesting – Gee was the double act partner of Les Dennis and died of a heart attack in 1986. Spookily Dustin Gee and Les Dennis had been the act due to follow Cooper on Live From Her Majesty's, the show Cooper died on in 1984. No news of whether Les Dennis will be portrayed in the Cooper biopic. But if he does, will Les Dennis play himself?
