Bookmark in Spalding have chosen the Tommy Cooper All in One Joke Book as its book of the week.
Instantly recognisable – especially with his red Fez – Tommy Cooper is still fondly remembered and his jokes and catchphrases have stayed with us, such as ‘Just like that!’
The Tommy Cooper: All in One Joke Book– compiled by John Fisher – is perfect for fans and anyone who would like a chuckle!
It’s the definitive Tommy Cooper joke book and includes the pick of Tommy’s own extensive gag library, favourite stories and photographs.
Guaranteed to make you smile, with jokes like ‘I call my car flattery. It gets me nowhere’, there’s also a selection of Tommy Cooper’s longer stories, such as asking the Queen backstage at the Royal Variety Performance whether she liked football and, on discovering that she was not particular about it, asking her if he could have her Cup Final tickets!
The book also reproduces some of Tommy’s full routines, such as The Hats Routine, illustrated with photographs of Tommy in all the hats involved and includes the comedian’s secret joke files at the back of the book.
The book retails for £8.99 but there is 20 per cent off with the voucher contained in the Spalding Guardian of November 6.
