AMMAN Valley residents will have the chance to experience Tommy Cooper with a special tribute show.

Just Like That! The Tommy Cooper Show will be at Ammanford's Theatr y Glowyr on Friday, May 20 at 7.30pm.

Since premiering in 2014 to mark 30 years since the passing of the comedy legend, the show has toured the UK, held a 16-week residency at London's Museum of Comedy and two sell-out runs at Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

The show - which features John Hewer in the starring role (Hancock's Half Hour - The Lost Episodes, and Steptoe and Son) - features a mix of magic and slapstick comedy.


Tommy Cooper was much-loved for his impeccable timing, slapstick and quick-fire gags. These, along with his love for his fez, will be celebrated with magic, music, classic Tommy Cooper gags and lesser known gems from his joke archive and magic routines.

Vicky, daughter of Mr Cooper, said: "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."

Mr Hewer said: "People can expect an evening of solid family entertainment - music, magic and, of course, plenty of Tommy's signature style of comedy.

"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 is 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."

Just Like That! The Tommy Cooper Show is produced by Hambledon Productions with the kind permission of The Tommy Cooper Estate, Museum of Comedy and Vicky Cooper, and is suitable for ages 8+.

Tickets are priced at £12.50 (£10.50 concessions) and can be booked online at or with the Box Office on 0345 226 3510.
