Presented by Slapstick Festival
Actor, impressionist and Deadringers (BBC R4) regular James Hurn pulls off what ought to be impossible – a one-man show recreating the hit radio show Hancock’s Half Hour and the voices of some of the 20th century’s best-loved comedy stars – among them Tony Hancock, Kenneth Williams, Sid James and Hattie Jacques.
Taking a live radio recording studio as his setting, Hurn act out two scripts – one a classic episode from the Hancock’s Half Hour series, the other self-penned in the style of the writers of the originals, Ray Galton and Alan Simpson.
Expect to laugh out loud at the humour and be awed by Hurn’s mimicry.
This event is part of Bristol’s 15th annual Slapstick festival, running from January 16 to 20.
