Biography » theater opera and movie personalities » tommy cooper


Tommy Cooper (19 March 1922 - 15 April 1984) was a British comedian and magician born in Caerphilly, Wales.


Cooper made an art form of getting magic tricks wrong. It should be noted, however, that despite his purported inability to perform conjuring tricks, he was in reality an accomplished magician and member of the Magic Circle. Famed for his red fez, his catchphrases were “Just like that!", “Not that – that!", and “Whisky, sample, sample, whisky, sample…".


Died on live show.
