Full Description

Just Like That! The Tommy Cooper Show

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 Londons 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” (TimeOut) as the man in the fez.

When was its first run?

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 Coopers extensive back catalogue, John Hewer captures the Cooper style, from the mumbled speech and loud laughter to the awkward giant-body language; (The Stage) as he brings Cooper back to life in this family-friendly show thats a must for all generations of knockabout comedy.

“For die-hard Cooper fans, its the chance to relive those memories and join in the groan-worthy gags and famous routines (plus plenty of lesser-known surprises and belly laughs!). For others, its a perfect evening of music-hall inspired entertainment that’ll have you rolling in the aisles jus-like-that! Complete with live musical accompaniment, this highly acclaimed tribute show is a loving ode to a comic oddball (Beyond The Joke) and is the perfect celebration of Britain’s favourite comedian.  If you fancy a trip down memory lane, then its ticket, money, money, ticket just like that!” Chortle
