Just Like That! The Tommy Cooper Show
May 4, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm£10.00 – £12.00
Tommy Cooper was a true comic genius. His impeccable timing, misfiring magic, trademark fez and quick-fire gags made him an international star and a true icon of the 20th Century. Now, over 30 years since his untimely passing, the appetite for his surreal slapstick, classic routines and snappy one-liners, continues to be re-discovered by old and new fans alike.
“JLT!” continues to wow audiences after sell-out success at London’s Museum of Comedy and an extensive UK tour. This all-encapsulating show features John Hewer (Tony Hancock, Hancock’s Half Hour – The ‘Lost’ Episodes, Harold Steptoe, Steptoe and Son) giving “a perfect illusion of time travel” (The Lost Review) and delivering “nuances both obvious and subtle” (TmeOut) as the man in the fez.
The show, first produced in 2014, has enjoyed enormous success across the UK and features classic favourites such as “spoon-jar”, “bottle-glass” and the hilarious “Hats”routine, combined with hidden gems and bumbling magic from Cooper’s extensive back catalogue.
John Hewer “captures the Cooper style, from the mumbled speech and loudlaughter to the awkward giant-body language” (The Stage) as he brings Cooper back to life in this family-friendly show that’s a must for all generations of knockabout comedy.
