John Cooper’s comic creation in Danny Pensive is a well realised character, full of childlike wonder and shot through with a naivety that makes his musings both playful and captivating.
The character is a bit of a simpleton, albeit one who has the best intentions. His stories have an innocence and innate curiosity to them but his gentle humour is underpinned by some sharp and clever lines. He has many wonderful turns of phrase and his voice flows with a gentle Mackem lilt that makes him instantly endearing.
Pensive is a charming and whimsical character, a thoroughly likeable guy in a duffle coat.
