“I would like to thank the other two Goodies, but I really can’t. It would have been so much easier without them.”

So wrote Bill Oddie in the liner notes for the late 90s greatest hits album “Yum Yum - The Very Best of The Goodies”, and it was all tongue in cheek.

But what if it wasn’t? What if, in 1975, Bill had decided to pursue his dream of a real rock career - and left Tim and Graeme in the lurch?

That’s the premise of Shaolin Punk’s first production, A Record or an OBE, to be performed at the 2007 Melbourne Fringe Festival. Written and produced by Ben McKenze, directed by Scott Gooding and starring McKenzie and Rob Lloyd as Graeme Garden and Tim Brooke-Taylor, OBE is a twenty-five minute black comedy exploring the unique dynamics of creative partnerships, and the strain the breakup of a comedy group has on the relationships between its members. It’s also a tribute to the greatest comedy trio ever to come out of the United Kingdom, and the era of comedy which spawned them.

A Record or an OBE will be performed at Caz Reitops Dirty Secrets for the last week of Fringe in early October.

Ticketing Info:

You can get your Fringe tickets online online from September 6th at melbournefringe.com.au, over the telephone on 03 8412 8777, or in person at the Fringe Ticketing & Information Centre at Federation Square. You’ll also be able to buy tickets at the Fringe Box Office at the North Melbourne Town Hall once the Fringe begins.

Tickets will also be available at the door - though as the venue is quite small, there’s a good chance some performances will sell out, so we recommend you book if you can.
