Famous Twitch gamer Limmy, who has over 400,000 followers on Twitter, has predicted that The Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger will die live onstage in reaction to Jagger posting a stunning new video of himself dancing as he prepares to go back on tour after heart surgery.
Limmy tweeted, “Gonnae somebody stop ma da fae dancin?”
“My prediction: Mick Jagger will do a Tommy Cooper.”
Comedian Tommy Cooper died on live television in 1984 from a heart attack. Wales Online wrote in 2009:
The night of April 15, 1984, was one no comedy fan will ever forget.
Millions tuned in to watch the hit variety show Live From Her Majesty’s, only to see Tommy Cooper suffer a massive fatal heart attack right there on stage.
But, as he collapsed to uproarious applause from an audience who thought it all part of his act, the 63-year-old Welsh comedy legend died as he had lived – making people laugh.
“God, that was the saddest night of my entire career,” remembered the show’s compere Jimmy Tarbuck, speaking for the first time about that fateful evening of 25 years ago this Wednesday.
“Tommy was doing the famous magic cloak skit, and I was hiding behind the curtain passing him different props which he’d then appear to pull from inside his long flowing gown.
“I’d hand him a paint pot, a plank of wood, gradually getting bigger and bigger until the final gag, which was me coming out carrying a step ladder and complaining I couldn’t fit it through his legs.
“But we never got to finish the routine because he suddenly dropped on to his haunches and was just sort of sitting there upright with his knees underneath him.”
