The Imitation Game and John Finnemore's Flying Visit
more from same (British Comedy)
British ComedyThe following information was sent to the ISIHAC Newsletter mailing list:

Dear I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue Mailing List Member,

I bring news of a couple of ISIHAC-related shows you might be interested in coming to see…

The first is a brand new comedy series called ‘The Imitation Game’ devised by Graeme Garden and myself, which is being recorded at the newly re-furbished studios in the old BBC Television Centre building in White City.  Many of you were kind enough to attend the pilot in Elstree.

The show could be described as a version of ‘I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue’ for impressionists – and was inspired by appearances on ISIHAC by the likes of Rory Bremner and Jan Ravens.  We’re making it for ITV and it’s hosted by the brilliant Alexander Armstrong, with Rory Bremner and Debra Stephenson (of ‘Dead Ringers’ fame) as regulars, plus a host of impressionists appearing as guests, including Jon Culshaw, Alistair McGowan, Ronni Ancona, Lewis McLeod, Kate Robbins and many more.  Steve Brown (Glenn Ponder from ‘Knowing Me Knowing You with Alan Partridge’) and his band will provide musical accompaniment.

Our recording dates are on the evenings of:

Friday 9th March
Tuesday 13th March
Thursday 15th March
Friday 23rd March
Tuesday 27th March
Thursday 29th March

Tickets are free.  You need to be over 16 to apply and you should do so via the website of the ticketing company Standing Room Only, which is: www.sroaudiences.com

I’ve managed to ensure that members of this mailing list will receive priority seating if they input the codeword ‘Garden’ into the 'Comments and other information' box on the application form.

So, to apply for the special ISIHAC Mailing List tickets, visit the SRO Audiences
site now and apply. The website address again is www.sroaudiences.com

Graeme and I look forward very much to seeing you there.

Another show that will be well worth seeing is that of Radio 4 stalwart and Clue regular John Finnemore.  John is soon to tour his first ever live stage show, which is entitled ‘John Finnemore's Flying Visit’.  It features the cast of ‘John Finnemore’s Souvenir Programme’ and will be on the road in May and June. These are the dates:

17th May - Brighton - Brighton Dome. Tickets will go on general sale on Friday 23rd February
18th May - High Wycombe - Wycombe Swan
20th May - Hastings - White Rock Theatre
21st May - Preston - Preston Guildhall
22nd May - York - Grant Opera House
26th May - Cheltenham - Cheltenham Town Hall
30th May - Birmingham - New Alexandra Theatre
3rd June - Richmond - Richmond Theatre
6th June - Swindon - Wyvern Theatre
7th June - Leamington Spa - Royal Spa Centre
8th June - Tunbridge Wells - Assembly Hall Theatre
10th June - Dorking - Dorking Halls
13th June - Basingtoke - Basingstoke Anvil
15th June - Edinburgh - The Queen's Hall

All John’s shows start at 7.30pm and finish around 10pm (with a 20 minute interval). The show is kid friendly, so bring the whole family along. Full details of the tour can be found on John’s website: http://johnfinnemore.blogspot.co.uk/

And that about the size of it.  I’ll be emailing again in March with details on the next series of ‘I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue’, which we’ll be recording over three dates in May, June and possibly July.  Thank you for listening!

With best wishes,

Tim in forthcoming audio version of "The Importance of Being Earnest"
more from same (British Comedy)
British ComedyBarnaby Eaton-Jones reported this information on Facebook:

THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EDITED...

The sound design and final edit of the full-cast audio version of 'The Importance of Being Earnest', featuring Tim Brooke-Taylor as Lady Bracknell, has been delivered by the incomparable Joseph Fox. It is a beautiful listen! There a handful of lines, added by me, to turn this from a stage production into an audio; where I had a Wilde time impersonating Oscar and nobody spotted by bon mots (I always keep them well hidden). So, that was a relief!

Keep your ears clean for the upcoming release from Spiteful Puppet.

* "It Was Alright in the 1970’s", a documentary with contributions from Bill Oddie, will be repeated on more4HD on Sunday, Feb 4th at 23:05  Program description: "In the final episode of the series, narrator Matt Lucas looks back once more at the 1970s. The theme this time is Living Dangerously, revealing more television to leave viewers wide-eyed and shaking their heads. In the world according to TV, the 1970s was a dangerous place where it was still perfectly legal for a husband to beat his wife, and a parent or teacher to beat a child. DJ and presenter Tony Blackburn climbed into a cage to sing to four fully-grown lions. On the Isle of Man, there was a feeling that if they banned the birch it would lead to moral ruin. Meanwhile, mainstream comedians were perfectly comfortable making jokes about domestic violence. Spike Milligan's comedy lived so dangerously, that even in the 70s his multi-racial sitcom The Melting Pot was considered too much and was pulled from the air. Responding to the clips are Tony Blackburn, Bill Oddie, Jennie Bond, Samira Ahmed and Elis James."

Here is a description of the show: "A true master of comedy shares a wealth of great stories and anecdotes from his career on stage, screen and radio including of course “The Goodies” and “I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue”. There are plenty of surprises too. Tim relates how he directed Orson Welles in a feature film, shot a memorable round of golf with Sevvy Ballesteros, persuaded David Frost to employ Marty Feldman and played a key role in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. We’ll hear stories about John Cleese, Richard Wilson, Graeme Garden, Bill Oddie and many more. With luck Tim may just be persuaded to reveal the truth about Samantha and the rules of Mornington Crescent. Add to all this warmth and good humour plenty of clips of great moments from Tim’s TV and film appearances and you’re sure of a memorable evening of fun and laughter."

more from same (British Comedy)
British ComedyWhile the Goodies are not appearing in this show, we wanted to pass along a news item for the Bananaman fans.

At Last the 1948 Show - Live! in Chicago Sept 15, 2017
more from same (British Comedy)
British ComedyFor any "At Last The 1948 Show" fans in the Chicago, IL area - a live version of sketches from the 1967 television show (written by John Cleese, Graham Chapman, Tim Brooke-Taylor, and Marty Feldman) will take place Sept 15th. The cast for "At Last the 1948 Show - Live!" includes Camilla Cleese (yes, daughter of John).

More details and a link for purchasing tickets can be found at
http://www.ticketfly.com/event/1515248-last-1948-show-live-chicago/

Here's the show's description from that website: "At Last the 1948 Show -- LIVE!
After 50 years of preparation, rare sketches from one of British television’s silliest shows are being presented in America for the very first time for two weeks only.

“At Last the 1948 Show—Live” is written by John Cleese, Graham Chapman, Tim Brooke-Taylor and Marty Feldman, and the cast is headed by Camilla Cleese (who is no relation to Chapman, Brooke-Taylor, or Feldman), with Isabeau Dornevil, Iris Kohler, Lauren Lonergan, Kristen Lundberg, and Lauren Pizzi—an all-female cast (if you don’t include Kim “Howard” Johnson, Michael McCarthy, and Bill Russell, although they are also in the cast).
The live show is produced and directed by Johnson in association with Wing Commander Muriel Volestrangler, F.R.H.S. and Bar, and the iO Chicago.

“At Last the 1948 Show” aired on British television in 1967. Afterward, the network realized they could save a little money by recording over these comedic masterworks, and it was only through the tireless efforts of Wing Commander Volestrangler and others that copies have been found and scripts reconstructed. While a few of these sketches were later re-recorded by Monty Python, and others can be found in the darkest corners of the internet, many simply don’t exist anymore. But now, Chicago audiences can experience them live on stage for the first time ever.

Camilla Cleese, with Isabeau Dornevil, Iris Kohler, Lauren Lonergan, Kristen Lundberg, and Lauren Pizzi—an all-female cast (if you don’t include Kim “Howard” Johnson, Michael McCarthy, and Bill Russell)"

Graeme & Bill participating in Slapstick 2017 festival
more from same (British Comedy)
British ComedyGraeme Garden and Bill Oddie will once again be participating in the annual Slapstick Festival.  Slapstick 2017 will be held January 18th - 22nd in Bristol, England.

The full festival schedule can be found at http://www.slapstick.org.uk/.  Note that in addition to the events with the Goodies there are also events with Barry Cryer, Colin Sell, and a celebration of "The Young Ones" with Alexi Sayle, Nigel Planer & series co-writer Lise Mayer.

Here are the Goodies-related events:

1."Robin and Not Josie's Book Shambles: The Goodies
Watershed | 1.20pm | Tickets: 9.00/6.50

The hugely popular podcast 'Robin and Josie's Book Shambles' comes to Slapstick to interrogate Graeme Garden and Bill Oddie on the books they made as two thirds of the TV comedy trio The Goodies (1970 - 1982). They'll also be talking about the making of The Goodies Disaster Movie and about the books and the authors that have inspired them.

Sadly, Josie Long is showing off in New York, but there will be a special guest co-host announced soon.


2. Accidentally Preserved: Surviving Slapstick on 16mm
Watershed | 9.30am | Tickets: 8.00/6.00

Slapstick comedy shorts were excellent fodder for home movie companies of the 1920s and 1930s. Kodascope and Pathescope rented or sold safety film prints for people to watch in their homes, not realising that decades later they would out-survive the 35mm versions originally in circulation. This programme contains hilarious rare slapstick shorts starring comedy stars whose work has been largely forgotten.

This event has been curated by Ben Model (silent film historian, accompanist and filmmaker) and will be hosted by Goodie Bill Oddie and Infinite Monkey Cage (Radio 4) star Robin Ince.

With live accompaniment from Guenter A. Buchwald.
