The UK tour of
The Goodies Still Rule OK!
Tim Brooke Taylor and Graeme Garden
“Their humour is ageless and timeless… The Goodies Still Rule OK – it’s not a boast, just a statement of fact.”
The Glasgow Herald
The Goodies are back and touring the UK with their hit show, The Goodies Still Rule OK!,a celebration of one of the most popular TV comedy series of the 1970s. The show, which received rave reviews at The Edinburgh Festival last Summer and sold out two tours in Australia, stars comic legends Tim Brooke-Taylor and Graeme Garden. Due to filming commitments, the third member of the trio, Bill Oddie will beam his performance to the venues via the wonders of digital technology.
The Goodieswere an integral part of the remarkable explosion of British comedy talent during the 1970s. Blending reminiscences with ridiculousness, The Goodies Still Rule OK! offers a chance to hang out with Tim and Graeme, enjoy cyber-Bill and share with them their favourite sketches, video clips and behind the scenes tales.
“… age has not wearied their genius for the ridiculous”
The Sydney Morning Herald
Tim, Graeme and Bill are amongst the most loved and prolific of all UK comedians, with writing and performing credits that include the cream of UK comedy from the 60s to the present. .
The Goodies Still Rule OK! will include the Goodies’ filthy bits banned by Australian TV,
sketches from the student revue that took them to Broadway, Tim’s Union Jack Waistcoat and quite possibly a few explosions (insurance pending!). With all new exclusive footage of Bill Oddie, the audience have the bonus of a rare sighting of the Lesser Tutted Scruff Pot after being returned to the wild
“The Goodies were always about good ideas and the decision to revive their special brand of lunacy is another one”
The Adelaide Review
The Goodies long-running television show evolved into a joyous, unrestrained, satirical festival of visual humour with special effects, explosions, giant props, camera tricks and slapstick.
In the world of British humour dominated by verbal dexterity, The Goodies added a strand of classic visual comedy. The Goodies ran for over a decade before they called it a day in 1981, creating an unprecedented library of shows. The Goodies twice won the Montreux Silver Rose and made guest appearances on every major British TV show including the legendary first Amnesty benefit show A Poke In The Eye With a Sharp Stick.
Tim Brooke-Taylor and Graeme Garden are panellists on the long-running radio show I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue
