IF - Punchline

This is based on a drawing my 8 yr old daughter started, I added the fez and hey presto a Tommy Cooper tribute act. His catchphrase or punchline was "Just Like That!"

Those not in the know, Tommy Cooper was a very popular British comedian (60's & 70's) who based his act on magic tricks going wrong. Although he was an accomplished magician and member of the Magic Circle. I remember as a kid he could make me laugh just standing doing nothing.

In real life he'd be funny too, he would leave a taxi, slipping something into the taxi driver's pocket saying, "Have a drink on me." The something turned out to be a tea bag.

What a team you two make! And together you got him just right; just like that. Carry on both. Actaully there's something inherently funny about a fez, isn't there.
