‘Tommy Cooper: Not Like That, Like This’ ITV Air Date and Cast List

ITV have now set the air date for their much anticipated one-off drama, Tommy Cooper: Not Like That, Like This.

The show, which is based on the real life of legendary British comedian Tommy Cooper, will broadcast at 9:00pm on Monday, 21 April, 2014 on ITV.

The programmes title character is being played by ‘Shameless’ star David Threlfall. Though at first this may seem an odd casting choice to play such a beloved comedy icon, at times when you see Threlfall in the role, the 60-year-old actor all of a sudden bears a striking resemblance to the great stand-up.
