Always Leave Them Laughing



Always Leave Them Laughing

Not one of Tommy Cooper's better nights, but laughter there was

Location: Lucy Road, Southend, SS1 2AU

Description: It was here during 1974 that Tommy Cooper - going through a slighly sticky patch - did not really endear himself to the management of the then 'Talk of the South' club.

Alas Tommy had been drinking a little too much at the time and this sometimes effected one or two of his brilliant performances.

The report on the fateful night to his manager and agent Miff Ferrie by telephone wasted no words...

'Drunk etc...one night only did five minutes and walked off'

Three hours later Tommy contacted Miff and still seemed a little worse for wear to explain himself - although Tommy was unsure of which night this 'trouble with the manager' might have applied to.

Ever the professional though - Tommy's show always went on even in his twilight performing years, when he would be ill and in pain.

A legend till the end!
