Tony Hancock Statue


by Ell Brown

"Memorial to Comedy Genius"

Placed in Old Square in the city center, this statue honors comedian Tony Hancock who was born in Hall Green, Birmingham in 1924 and tragically committed suicide in 1968. Hancock was the archetypal "man in the street" and his radio and television programs, Hancock's Half Hour, are seen as classics of British comedy. The monument itself is of a modern style; a huge flat image showing Hancock's face with some quotations around the statue base. It was unveiled in 1996 by Sir Harry Secombe.
