NICHOLAS BUDA certified reviewer July 03, 2022
Niek Versteeg is mesmerizing to watch as Tommy Cooper. He was able to transport me to a different time, in a different land, and had me laughing and crying. Niek was able to create a story as well as an image of this man whom I never have heard of yet, now feels I know more about. Fantastic!... full review

Fantastic show. Tommy Cooper came to life in this wonderful play which masterfully juxtaposed his comedy and his inner doubt. The jokes and magic were fun, and the deep reflection on his life brought a tear to my eye at the end. ... full review

Niek performed wonderfully in his original solo show about the comedy star Tommy Cooper. It was by far the best show I saw in the Fringe and one of the best shows I've seen anywhere for a long time. I was hooked the whole time and didn't want it to end. ... full review

A most unusual subject and fabulously acted performance. Niek Versteeg's enthusiasm for a bygone era of Show Business is refreshing and surprising. His acting is by turns wonderfully entertaining and moving.... full review

GO SEE THIS SHOW! One of the top Fringe shows this year, no doubt about it. Niek is exceptional! This show is absolutely brilliant. Everything about it; the masterful comedy, heartbreaking insights into the private moments of Tommy and an everlasting need to be loved. ... full review
RUSSELL BAER certified reviewer June 18, 2022
NIEK VERSTEEG brings life to a comic legend once lived in this unique 40 minute production . Those who knew of this British comedian will love seeing the homage that Niek portrays poignantly, as he takes us through a fast and very entertaining journey, while giving us a glimpse into the laughter and pain behind this very public figure. Those who are unfamiliar with Tommy Cooper will be fast searching the internet to find out who he was and soon seeing how well Versteeg portrays these moments written by the actor himself.... full review
