Show Nears Sell-Out - Just Like That!

Tickets for the Tommy Cooper Show – Just Like That – remain on sale via the clubs online sales portal, but are now extremely limited and are available on a first come, first served basis. When they’re gone, they’re gone. The highly acclaimed show takes place at the Hereford Suite this coming Friday, March 31st.

Direct from sell-out successes at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the ex-West End show promises to be a great night of comedy. Tickets at just £10 each and can be purchased NOW via the official Hereford FC website

Once purchased online your tickets can be collected from the club shop in a similar way to pre-ordered match-day tickets; and will be retained in envelopes in alphabetical order awaiting your collection. We are extremely grateful for the assistance of Hereford FC in staging this event which will commence at 7:30pm in the Hereford Suite (formerly the Starlite Rooms).

Alternatively you can purchase tickets in cash or via card directly from the club shop by simply asking for tickets for the Just Like That event! This will be subject to the normal opening hours of the official shop.

Tommy Cooper was a true comic genius. His impeccable timing, misfiring magic, trademark fez and quick-fire gags made him an international star and a true icon of the 20th Century. Now, 30 years since his untimely passing, the appetite for his surreal slapstick, classic routines and snappy one-liners, continues to be re-discovered by old and new fans alike.

“Just Like That!” embarks on a new nationwide tour after sell-out successes at the West End’s Museum of Comedy. This all-encapsulating show features John Hewer (Tony Hancock, Hancock’s Half Hour – The ‘Lost’ Episodes) giving “a perfect illusion of time travel” (The Lost Review) and delivering “nuances both obvious and subtle” (TmeOut) as the man in the fez.

The show, first produced in 2014 to mark 30 years since the comedian’s untimely passing, has enjoyed enormous success nationwide and features classic favourites such as “spoon-jar”, “bottle-glass” and the hilarious “Hats” routine, combined with hidden gems and bumbling magic from Cooper’s extensive back catalogue.

John Hewer “captures the Cooper style, from the mumbled speech and loud laughter to the awkward giant-body language” (The Stage) as he brings Cooper back to life in this family-friendly show that’s a must for all generations of knockabout comedy.

For die-hard Cooper fans, it’s the chance to relive those memories and join in the groan-worthy gags and famous routines (plus plenty of lesser-known surprises and belly laughs!) For others, it’s a perfect evening of inspired entertainment that’ll have you rolling in the aisles – jus’-like-that!
