Audiences will be entertained ‘just like that’ as The Tommy Cooper Show comes to the Grand Theatre.

The ‘fun-filled’ show has seen Daniel Taylor’s turn as the comic legend as the knockout performance of the year, ‘no mere impersonation, he’s brought Cooper back to life’.

The show runs on Friday and Saturday, September 4 and 5.

A spokesman said: “Between the story, the gags and Daniel’s incredible portrayal of showbusiness legend Tommy Cooper, The Tommy Cooper Show promises to be a night to remember packed with all the classic jokes and storys.

“Daniel Taylor is recognised throughout the UK as Sammy in Willy Russell’s Blood Brothers having played to sell out theatres from Land’s End to Inverness in the National tour and in the West End.

“TV presenter and personality Gareth Jones (Gaz Top) plays Miff Ferrie, Tommy’s long suffering agent and manager. Gareth is best known for his work as a presenter of children’s television and science programmes How 2 and Get Fresh.
