Hancock’s Half Hour

In 1954, Tony Hancock burst onto the airwaves with a comedy show unlike anything the British public had heard before.  Playing a less successful version of himself and surrounded by a cast of fellow comedy greats including Sid James, Hattie Jacques and Kenneth Williams, Hancock’s Half Hour was one of the first programmes in the genre we now know as sitcom.

So come and take a trip to 23 Railway Cuttings, East Cheam to join ‘the lad himself’ and his motley crew for three classic episodes of this hilarious show.

A superb evening’s entertainment and I left the theatre wanting more. ROBIN STRAPP, BRITISH THEATRE GUIDE

Do you have any more information on this? I can’t tell if it is a reenactment of some of the radio shows, or just the chance to listen to the original airings. Thank you.

Hi Kathryn. Thanks for your question. The show is a re-enactment of three episodes of the radio show, with actors on stage playing the various roles and delivering the original dialogue (much like The Goon Show, if you caught that performance). Hope this helps.
