Tommy Cooper (19th March 1921 to 14th April 1984)

 

Here is Her Majesty’s Theatre where the comic Tommy Cooper died on stage in the middle of his act. I can remember my mum and dad watching it as the show was broadcast live on television. I suppose flopping down to the waves of laughter isn’t a bad way to go if you're a comic.

 

Sorry about the hairy white legs…
