Tommy Cooper was a legendary British prop comedian remembered for his funny big face and perfect comic timing. He was initially interested in magic and comedy; his interest in comedy is believed to be inspired by some great comedians like Max Hiller and Bob Hope. After completing his schooling he went on to serve the navy during the Second World War, during which he performed his first magic show which failed miserably. He realized his humor skills during this term, and after being demobilized he turned towards the show business. He joined a band as a comedian in the show ‘Marqueeze and the Dance of the Seven Veils’ where his performance was appreciated. He further toured Europe for the next couple of years performing to debut on the television with the show titled ‘New to You’.
