Hancock and Co: One Man Many Voices
Impressionist James Hurn (BBC's Dead Ringers and Birmingham Comedy Festival's The Lost Hancocks: Vacant Lot) recreates Hancock's Half Hour, with uncanny impressions of Tony Hancock, Sid James, Kenneth Williams, Hattie Jacques, and Bill Kerr.
Hancock and Co is one fantastic episode written by Hurn in the style of Galton and Simpson, and featuring one lost episode ... Sid James’ Dad.
“Utterly masterful and quite, quite superb” - Jon Culshaw, impressionist
“You have Tony Hancock’s pitch and tone so much better than I” - Kevin McNally (BBC's Missing Hancocks' actor)
“If anyone is out there wondering; does it work, one man doing the whole cast? Are the new scripts up to scratch? Is it like the real thing? The answers are; yes, yes and yes. Go and see him while you can. James Hurn – as recommended by the Tony Hancock Appreciation Society” - Tom Dommett (Editor, THAS) 5*****
