I’m going to shite in my fez and make it disappear.

Tommy Cooper is a famous British magician. And he wore a fez. Way before being British and wearing a fez was cool.

“He made an art form of getting magic tricks wrong. However, despite his purported inability to perform conjuring tricks, he was in reality an accomplished magician and member of The Magic Circle. Famed for his red fez, his appearance was large and lumbering at 6ft 3ins.”

Here’s the rest of his Wikipedia entry.

I don’t know diddly about Tommy Cooper but trust that Brother Phil (#9) and Brother James (#10) can enlighten us (they being fez-wearing Brits, too).

Anthony Hopkins (Is it Sir Anthony?) was on hand for a recent ceremony in Tommy’s home town and AH can wear the living shite out of a fez! [Thanks, Brother Bob, aka Fez #2]
