“THE CLOSEST YOU’RE GOING TO GET TO SEEING COOPER ON STAGE”★★★★ blackdiamondfm.com
Direct from sell-out successes at Edinburgh Festival Fringe, a sixteen-week residency at The Museum and a guest-appearance on The Alan Titchmarsh Show, Just Like That! is a wonderful homage to the UK’s best-loved comedian of all time and is embarking on a nationwide tour throughout 2016 and 2017.
“HEWER KNOWS EXACTLY HOW TO DELIVER THE GOODS” ★★★★ bouquetsbrickbatsreviews.com
Tommy Cooper was a true comic genius. His impeccable timing, love of slapstick and quick-fire gags made him an international star. Complete with his trademark fez and a plethora of misfiring magic, the man is an undisputed icon of live entertainment. Commemorating over 30 years since his passing, this all-encapsulating show of magic, music and mirth is the perfect celebration of Britain's top comedian and features all of Tommy’s classic gags combined with lesser-known gems lovingly selected from his joke archive and extensive magic routines.
“VERY MUCH A LOVING ODE TO THIS COMIC ODDBALL.” Bruce Dessau (Beyond The Joke)
“A REMARKABLY FAITHFUL PERFORMANCE FROM THE TALENTED HEWER… FULL OF INSPIRED LUNACY AND DEEP, BELLY LAUGHS.” – Time Out
The show also boasts the support of Tommy’s daughter, Vicky, who says: “It’s an incredible honour that my father is being remembered 30 years on through the spirit of this wonderful production. If Tommy were floating around here today he would have loved the fact that he was still bringing laughter into people’s lives.”
John Hewer (Tony Hancock in Hancock’s Half Hour, Frankie Howerd in Up Pompeii!) who plays the man in the fez says: "People can expect two hours of solid family entertainment - music, magic and, of course, plenty of Tommy's signature buffoonery. For hardcore Cooper fans and lovers of comedy alike, the show is a must as we delve into his vast catalogue of material and come up with some hidden gems as well as his sure-fire hits. Tommy was a comic genius, a true icon of the 20th century, and it's an honour to be bringing his timeless sense of mischief to old and new audiences."
