Hambledon Productions is a professional theatre company founded by Rachael and John Hewer, specializing in new writing and the re-imagining of classics.


The Tommy Cooper Show

Tommy Cooper was a true comic genius. His impeccable timing, memorable routines, love of slapstick and groan-worthy gags made him an international name. To commemorate 30 years since his death, this special tribute show is a compilation of rarely seen material from his early cabaret days and the very best of his gags and tricks from his later extensive repertoire.

Complete with live music accompaniment, this promises to be a colourful, laugh-a-minute extravaganza that comedy fans of all ages simply can't miss - just like that!
