The Tommy Cooper Show comes to the Grand Theatre.

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

The show runs on tomorrow and Saturday at 7.30pm.

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 stories.

“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.”

The Tommy Cooper Show came about when Daniel Taylor spoke of his desire to play the great man, with Liverpool writer Ian Carroll taking up the challenge.

The show is a celebration of Tommy’s journey from his days in the army right up to the height of his national TV stardom, told by Tommy, his wife Gwenn (played by Sharon Byatt) and manager Miff.
