The  UK’s  No.  1  Tommy  Cooper  Show  is  back  on  tour!
Tommy  Cooper  was  a  true  comic  genius.  His  impeccable  timing,  misfiring  magic,  trademark  fez  and  quick-fire  gags  made  him  an  international  star.
"JLT!"  continues  to  wow  audiences  after  sell-out  success  at  London’s  Museum  of  Comedy  and  an  extensive  UK  tour.  This  all-encapsulating  show  stars  John  Hewer  (Tony  Hancock,  Hancock's  Half  Hour  -  The  'Lost'  Episodes,  Harold  Steptoe,  Steptoe  and  Son)  giving  "a  perfect  illusion  of  time  travel"  and  delivering  "nuances  both  obvious  and  subtle"  as  the  man  in  the  fez.
With  live  musical  accompaniment,  this  acclaimed  tribute  is  the  perfect  celebration  of  Britain's  favourite  comedian. 
“John  Hewer  is excellent!  He’s  picked  up  the  nuances  both  obvious  and  subtle” –  Everything  Theatre
“John Hewer  captures  the  Cooper  style,  from  the  mumbled  speech  and  loud  laughter  to  the  awkward  giant-body  language” – The  Stage
"Very  much  aloving  odeto  this  comic  oddball” – Beyond  the  Joke
“It  delivers  on  every  one  of it’s  promises.  As  a  love  letter  to  Tommy  Cooper,  it’s  sealed  with  a  loving  kiss” – Broadway  Baby
"A  perfect  illusion of  time  travel” – The  Lost  Review
“No  one  can  rival  the  original,  but  this  is closest  you  are  going  to  get  to seeing  Tommy  Cooper  on  stage” – Black  Diamond  FM
“If  you  fancy  a  trip  down  memory  lane,  then  it’s  money,  ticket,  ticket,  money – JUST  LIKE  THAT!” – Chortle
“The  dear  boy’s  a  comedy  genius!”–  Leslie  Phillips  CBE
“I  never  believed  it  would  be  possible  to  recreate  the  unforgettable  Mr.  Cooper.  John  Hewer  has  proved  me  wrong.” – Robert  Ross  (Comedy  Historian)

    This was quite simply the best evening we've had for AGES. Rob Gee is an extremely talented writer/poet/performer, and from the moment he appeared on stage we were transformed to a dementia ward and the ensuing Whodunnit. He portrayed all the various characters brilliantly (and with special mention to the hilarious mixed metaphors of DI Rae). Superb.
