Tommy Cooper's Mirth, Magic and Mischief takes us back into the hilarious world of the master. In this volume not only do we revisit Tommy's personal joke collection but we also delve into his secret magic files. Here will be how to catch a bullet in your teeth - Tommy style, create a floating sausage, learn Tommy's favourite practical jokes, and perform the egg and bag trick to the amazement of all. Or if you just want to laugh some more at his fabulous laughter files, this is the book for you. There's only one person in the world who could produce this book: John Fisher, author of the bestselling "The Tommy Cooper Joke Book" and the biography "Always Leave Them Laughing." John was a friend and confidante of Tommy and is the possessor of the largest archive of Tommy Cooper material including a card index of 25,000 Cooper jokes, scripts, monologues and memorabilia which will make this book a 'must have' for all of his millions of fans.
