Competition: Win tickets to Tommy Cooper tribute show
We’ve teamed up with organisers to offer four pairs of tickets to a tribute show to comedian Tommy Cooper at the Bourne Corn Exchange.
Tommy Cooper was a true comic genius. His impeccable timing, misfiring magic, trademark fez and quick-fire gags made him an international star.
Now, 30 years since his untimely passing, the appetite for his surreal slapstick, classic routines and snappy one-liners continues to be re-discovered by old and new fans alike.
‘Just Like That!’ embarks on a new nationwide tour after sell-out success at the West End’s Museum of Comedy. This all-encapsulating show features Lincolnshire-born John Hewer delivering “nuances both obvious and subtle” (TimeOut) as the man in the fez.
The show features classic favourites such as “spoon-jar”, “bottle-glass” and the hilarious “Hats” routine, combined with hidden gems and bumbling magic from Cooper’s extensive back catalogue.
Complete with live musical accompaniment, this highly acclaimed tribute show has been given the approval of Tommy’s daughter, Vicky, who said: “If Tommy were floating around here today he would have loved the fact that he was still bringing laughter into people’s lives through the spirit of this wonderful production.”
Tickets for ‘Just Like That!’, on at the Bourne Exchange on Thursday, May 19 at 7.30pm and priced at £12 adult and £10 concessions, are available on 01476 406158, in person at Bourne Library or online at www.southkesteven.gov.uk/bournecornexchange
