Hancock's Half Hour

About

Thursday 31 January – Saturday 2 February at 7.30pm
Matinees Thu & Sat at 2.15pm

Join us at 23 Railway Cuttings, East Cheam, for three brilliantly funny episodes of this classic comedy, live on stage (from the producers of Round the Horne and The Goon Show).

In 1954, Tony Hancock burst onto the airwaves of the BBC Light Programme 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.

Written by young up-and-comers Ray Galton and Alan Simpson, who later went on to create Steptoe and Son, Hancock’s Half Hour redefined radio comedy and has had people laughing non-stop for the past 65 years.

Cast includes James Hurn (Deadringers, Hancock & Co.) as Tony Hancock and Colin Elmer (Round the Horne, The Goon Show) as Kenneth Williams.
