A really great evening, due to first class script and performances. Caught just the right tone to amuse and draw you in emotionally. Has deservedly won an extension to 21 July. Lots with memories of Tommy Cooper will nonetheless sadly miss this unless it is picked up somewhere else.


Thoroughly recommend - intimate setting perfect for this glimpse of the torment of the larger than life, well loved comedian and the forces that support and destroy. Damien Williams IS Tommy Cooper and we want to laugh with him even when we feel distaste at his behaviours. Excellent acting and worthy of a longer run and wider audience.


My first visit to a theatre in a pub. Great combo for starters ! This show is excellent, soaring through the peaks of Tommys comic genius to the depths of his depression within the toss of a coin. The performance is flawlessly engrossing, as damian williams toys with the audience leading them between being spectators to the plot and participants at Tommys Vegas shows. This deserves to tour !
