From the Publisher
‘A monumental and masterly biography of the great Cooper.' Daily Mail
'A masterful work that will deservedly find its way into the Christmas stockings of anyone interested in showbiz.'
'It's a measure of how funny he (Cooper) was that this book had me on the floor even when reading about gags I've never seen. Yet this is no hagiography. While it has chapter and verse on how Cooper's comic chaos came into being, it also tells how one of our country's greatest bringers of joy was a boozy, tight-fisted, foul-mouthed, faithless old misery.' The Sunday Times.
‘This book is an accolade to a truly talented and complex man who was much more than just a comic.’ The Sun
' "The definitive biography of a comedy legend" – for once a book lives up to its blurb.'
‘John Fisher’s biography admirably captures the Cooper magic.’ The Oldie
‘A book with unrivalled access to (and knowledge of) its elusive subject.’ The Independent
‘… a well balanced, very well researched and thoroughly enjoyable book that at times will have you laughing out loud.’ **** The Irish Examiner
