Facts of Life: When my wife was pregnant we went to see a baby doctor, but he didn't know anything. He was only eight months old! Horses: I used to have a riding school, but business kept falling off! Waiters: I said to the waiter, 'There's no chicken in this chicken soup'. He said, 'And there's no horse in the horseradish either'. Wives: 'The other night I had an argument with my wife in the launderette ...but we went home and ironed things out'.

Review quote

"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." Sunday Times "Tommy Cooper's Secret Joke Files also includes a fascinating look at the painstaking process Tommy Cooper used to catalogue and index his material, and the fine tuning that turned an original thought, written down as a few random lines, into a brilliant one-liner. The perfect Christmas present and highly recommended" Magic Week "This alphabetical compilation of the sublimely silly Cooper's best jokes will keep the entire family in stitches" Saga "More festive smiles are guaranteed" Choice
