Our next meeting at Crockham Hill Village Hall is on Wednesday 31at January and will be a talk by John Field about the comedian, Tommy Cooper.
This ungainly, tall, ugly, incompetent magician only had to stand on stage and the public would laugh. As soon as he chuckled, shrugged his shoulders, coughed or did a stage shimmy the audience was his. Even now his shows are repeated on television to large audiences who cannot help laughing at his antics. What was he really like and what led him to this successful formula? Hear John’s talk on Tommy to find out.
Regular meetings are held on the last Wednesday of the month at 2pm in Crockham Hill Village Hall.
