"I'm Sorry I'll Read That Again...Again" in Cheltenham Feb 19, 2016
more from same (British Comedy)
British ComedyComing up at The Bacon Theatre in Cheltenham on February 19th - "I'm Sorry I'll Read That Again...Again" - from the event's Facebook Page: "Performed on stage in classic radio comedy style with music and sound effects, The OFFSTAGE Theatre Group recreates the anarchic and deliciously surreal cult comedy show that laid waste to BBC Radio in the 60’s and 70’s.
A Greatest Hits compilation of original material by Graeme Garden and Bill Oddie, this knockabout show celebrates the radio series that gave birth to The Goodies and Monty Python’s Flying Circus - not to mention I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue."

At Last the 1948 Show Revisted Cert:PG
with Tim Brooke-Taylor and Aimi MacDonald


Sat 23rd Jan | Watershed | 9:15AM
Tickets: �6.00/�8.00 (plus booking fee)


�At Last the 1948 Show� triggered a revolution that was destined to change the face of TV comedy forever. Bursting onto the nation�s small screens in an explosion of unrelated and often surreal sketches, its main perpetrators were Tim Brooke-Taylor, John Cleese, Graham Chapman, Marty Feldman and Aimi MacDonald. What �At Last the 1948 Show� began the Monty Python and The Goodies would finish in their own inimitable way. Four �lost� episodes of At last the 1948 Show have recently been recovered from the David Frost Collection. Here we offer a rare opportunity to watch excerpts from the show�s best bits and from some of the newly discovered editions followed by a Q&A as Tim and Aimi discuss this seminal comedy show on stage with presenter Chris Serle.

Way Out West is perhaps Laurel and Hardy�s greatest feature-length film and is being screened here in a newly restored digital print. Spike Milligan said: �From the moment I saw Laurel and Hardy on the screen I knew they were my friends� and friendship is at the heart of their 1937 spoof Western comedy, which contains their most famous song and one of the most charming dance sequences in cinema history. Laurel &Hardy admirer and Goodie Bill Oddie introduces.
