Comedy is often a victim of time. Attitudes change. What we find humorous today may not be to the tastes of people in the future.

Such is not the case with the British comedy “Hancock’s Half Hour.” The show stars Tony Hancock, who finds himself in a ridiculous situation during each show.

The show started out on radio in the 1950s and then moved to television.

It still makes people laugh nearly six decades later.
