The death of Tommy Cooper!

live on TV. At least he went doing something he loved.

Tommy Cooper Dies

On 15 April 1984, Cooper collapsed from a heart attack in front of millions of television viewers, midway through his act on the live London Weekend Television (LWT) ITV variety show Live From Her Majesty's. Most of the audience thought it was part of his act and were laughing, until it became apparent he was seriously ill.

For a long time, a rumour circulated that the size 13 feet from his 6 foot 3 frame protruded underneath the curtains. While the show continued, efforts were being made backstage to revive Cooper, not made easier by the darkness. It was not until a second commercial break that ambulancemen were able to move his body to Westminster Hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

Don't click play if you don't want to see someone dying!!

i have never seen this before.

after seeing it i can understand why people thought it was part of the act and continued to laugh.

knowing that he was actually dying makes the clip very surreal.

i never got tommy cooper's comedy but it was still sad to see nontheless.

i have seen the TC statue in caerphilly(his birth place) and words cannot describe it's hideousness.
local opinion is divided over it but at least they do have something to commemorate him.
i believe they got antony hopkins to unviel it as he was a big fan--saw that on the BBC Wales website.

I reject your reality and substitute my own!

Yeah, remember seeing it as a lad. It was actually quite a while (or it felt like it) before the curtains closed. When it was announced he had died I was shocked.
Very sad, surprised it's been allowed on youtube.
