Thomas Frederick Cooper Bio/Wiki, Net Worth, Married 2018

Thomas Frederick "Tommy" Cooper (19 March 1921 – 15 April 1984) was a British prop comedian and magician.Cooper was a member of the Magic Circle, and respected by traditional magicians. He was famed for his red fez, and his appearance was large and lumbering, at 6 feet 4 inches (1.93 m) and more than 15 stone (210 lb; 95 kg) in weight.On 15 April 1984 Cooper collapsed and died soon afterwards from a heart attack in front of millions of television viewers, midway through his act on the London Weekend Television variety show Live From Her Majesty's, transmitted live from Her Majesty's Theatre. His stage persona required that his act intentionally go wrong for comic purposes, leading to some initial uncertainty about whether this collapse was real.

#Trademark
1Normally wore a red fez on his live shows
2His groggy voice and laughter
3Would pretend to bumble his way through a magic trick but often managed to pull it off in the end.
#Quote
1Catchphrase: "Just like that!"
#Fact
1His sudden death, along with Eric Morecambe's inspired Ronnie Barker to retire at the age of 59, rather than work himself into an early grave.
2Although his stage and TV act portrayed him as a failed magician whose tricks always went wrong, he was actually an accomplished magician and a member of the Magic Circle.
3Father of Thomas Henty.
4He collapsed on stage while in the middle of his act on a live Sunday evening variety show, falling backwards through the centre of the stage curtain. As he began to snore loudly (often a symptom of a massive heart attack) and as his feet remained protruding underneath the bottom of the curtain the theatre audience assumed this was part of his "failed magic trick" act and continued to roar with laughter. After a few moments of confusion the orchestra struck up and the show went to a commercial. Although the incident had been seen live by millions of viewers at the time, the sequence was never shown again out of respect to his family and to his memory.
5Although the hallmark of his act was to get magic tricks wrong, he was in reality an accomplished magician and member of the Magic Circle.
