Tommy Cooper Quotes – An hilarious man – not so much quotes as jokes.

He was a very funny man.

Opher's World

Some people have such a personality that they are larger than Life. Tommy Cooper was like that for me. I only had to see him and the tears would be rolling down my cheeks. It wasn’t just the jokes, it was his persona, his facial expressions and the way he did it. There was an absurdity to him, a vulnerability and a pathetic appeal.

Police arrested two kids yesterday, one was drinking battery acid, the other was eating fireworks. They charged one and let the other one off.
I can visualise him saying it.
You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen, it said ‘Parking Fine.’
 That bewildered expression.
So I was getting into my car, and this bloke says to me ’Can you give me a lift?’ I said ’Sure, you look great, the world’s your oyster, go for…

  1. A giant of a man Opher: there is a larger-than-life statue of him in Caerphilly, South Wales as tribute to his larger-than-life character. I imagine him to be in everyone’s top ten comedian list.

    Cracking jokes: one-liner’s are the best!


      1. Indeed, you defined him far better than I.

        My copy of Neanderthal arrived this morning, thank you! I’m looking forward to making headway into it. Mention of small involvement in the book is a nice touch, thank you, but in all ways the time, effort and energy invested was yours. I hope it will do well.



      2. Well it’s sold five copies so far (two of them mine and yours!). Who knows – one day, maybe. I must get round to doing some serious touting, marketing and advertising. Trouble is that my heart’s not in it!

        Anyway, thank you again for your efforts. They were much appreciated. I hope you enjoy the book. If there are any improvements I can take them on.

        All the best.
        We are off tomorrow for six weeks! Not sure how much internet contact I’ll have. I’m expecting little! We’ll see!

        All the best Dewin – get writing!

      3. Fingers crossed Opher! One never knows! It may yet prove to be a bestseller.

        My heart isn’t in promotion either, nor do I have much interest in social media, which seems to drive such endeavours. Perhaps it’s time to attract a publisher?

        Pleasure, fulfilment and a firm sense of accomplishment is found in having risen to the challenge of writing the book in the first place, which as you readily suggest is a joy in and of itself. Of course, recognition of your achievement would be nice, but you’ll still go ahead and write the next novel without it.

        I’m happy to have a played a small part and will find enjoyment in reading Neanderthal through different eyes. I thought it a clever idea and a great story.

        You will undoubtedly have a wonderful, extended vacation! Six-weeks! That should give you chance to write another book whilst there! Should you find chance to get on-line it’ll be good to know how you’re getting on. Bon voyage! Have a fantastic time.


      4. I’ve already started writing the next one Dewin – a sequel to Quantum Fever entitled Schizoid! I’m hoping to get that finished in the next six weeks and maybe start another. We’ll see!
        I’ve just published my next book of verse! – A Cosmic Dance Through Life in the Perverse. It’s getting ridiculous!

      5. Good grief! Your love of writing and the creativity that motivates it are plain to see!

        You are a naturally prolific writer, with high energy levels and obviously on a roll: make haste whilst the sun shines! 😀

        How is Quantum Fever going?

        That is quite a title for an anthology!


      6. Quantum Fever is finished and published. So far nobody seems at all interested. I think I’ve sold 1.
        Never mind.
        If it was about wealth and fame I’m going about it entirely the wrong way. As it isn’t. It’s about expressing myself and my creativity – then it’s perfect – as long as I don’t allow myself to become despondent over my lack of readership.
        Yes – when I get back I will once again embark on the unrewarding task of seeking publishers! Ho hum!

I'd like to hear from you...
