Tommy Handley

1896 - 1949

Tommy Handley was already a seasoned radio performer, when the phenomenally successful It’s That Man Again’ (‘ITMA’) was created to showcase his wisecracking personality.

Though launched in 1939, during the final days of peace, it was the onset of war that allowed Handley to give vent to topical, Hitler-baiting gags, making ITMA essential listening – ‘that man’ in the title being Hitler himself.
