‘Stick Man lives in the family tree, with his Stick Lady Love and their stick children three...’

But the world outside the family tree is a dangerous place for Stick Man. A dog wants to play fetch with him, a swan builds a nest with him and he even ends up on a fire! How will Stick Man ever get back to the family tree?

Guarantees more fun than you can shake a stick at!

The Tommy Cooper Show

01555 667 999 The Tommy Cooper Show more

Featuring West End and Blood Brothers star Daniel Taylor as Tommy Cooper, the Tommy Cooper Show provides the knockout performance of the year. The show comes with a fabulous supporting cast of Gareth Jones (formerly Gaz Top) as Miff Ferrie and Sharon Byatt as Gwen Cooper…and all of your favourite jokes. Between the story, the gags, the magic and Daniel’s incredible portrayal of showbusiness legend Tommy Cooper, this promises to be a very special show.

'The true impact of The Tommy Cooper Show is best gauged by the ovation of an audience who have spent the duration of the show utterly entranced by this portrayal and laughing along as if the great man was actually present in the room with us.' Dave Jennings, British Theatre Guide - January 2015

‘This is no mere impersonation.  Taylor has nailed Cooper.  He has brought him back to life’ Paul Levy, Fringe Review Edinburgh 2014
