Not the bestBy Paul from Yorkshire, England , 21 Aug 2006
[Highly rated reviewer]Tommy Cooper was one of the funniest and best British comedians of the 20th century. Unfortunately you can't tell that from the collection of clips on this DVD.
Although some of the clips do show you his talent, in general these clips have not been well chosen and most just come across as seeming very dated.
And unfortunately there's hardly any of his magic tricks included, which is a real shame.

A Bit of Re-Editing Wouldn't Go AmissBy oxymoron (4 reviews) from Leeds , 31 Aug 2008Don't get me wrong, Tommy Cooper is a funny bloke and this is a funny DVD but it is spoiled by the fact that his routines are chopped up into short - often very short - segments and interspersed with sentimental tributes and garish 1980s-style graphics.
Is it really too much to ask for somebody to sit down and re-edit his material for a modern DVD audience?
Hopefully there is a better DVD of Tommy out there somewhere.

Worth a watchBy a customer from Birmingham, UK , 07 Jun 2007Some good stuff on this DVD although I would hesitate to say that it was his best. The clips of the appearances of Cooper on ' This is Your Life' are worth the rental on their own.
Tommy CooperBy kiwilad (22 reviews) from London , 07 May 2007I could not stop laughing at this dvd. I had the pleasure of seeing Tommy Cooper live on stage many years ago,and he is probably one of the funniest comedians to have ever lived, and all his jokes and sketches did not have to resort to smutty material.
