Hancock's Half Hour was a BBC radio comedy, and later television comedy series, broadcast from 1954 to 1961 and written by Ray Galton and Alan Simpson. The series starred Tony Hancock, with Sidney James; the radio version also co-starred, at various times, Moira Lister, Andrée Melly, Hattie Jacques, Bill Kerr, and Kenneth Williams. The final television series renamed simply Hancock, starred Hancock alone. Comedian Tony Hancock starred in the show, playing an exaggerated and much poorer version of his own character and lifestyle, Anthony Aloysius St John Hancock, a down-at-heel comedian living at the dilapidated 23 Railway Cuttings in East Cheam.
Hancock and Co is the first-ever one-man show where James Hurn voices the entire cast with incredible accuracy. The show entails two episodes James has written himself in the same style as Galton and Simpson and one lost episode called Sid James’ Dad. James has now written 4 complete half-hour episodes called – Halloween Hancock, The Metal Detector, The Keep Fit Regime and The Inheritance. James is in the process of writing two more complete half-hour episodes and we plan to make all six of them available for download and CD.
