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. 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.Performer James Hurn (Tony Hancock). Performer Colin Elmer (Kenneth Williams).
