All three Goodies are to return to Bristol for the annual Slapstick Festival in January 2018.

The Slapstick Festival runs from 25th to 28th January. With 23 exciting events packed into four days across four venues.

There are two super Goodies events in which the chaps will be taking part.

The first one…

‘Buster Keaton Classics & Rarities
 with The Goodies
SAT 27 JAN 1330hrs Bristol Old Vic £15.00

Tim Brooke-Taylor, Bill Oddie & Graeme Garden, the much-loved comedy team behind The Goodies TV series (1969-1982), are all huge admirers of Buster Keaton. Here, they celebrate their mutual passion for “The Great Stone Face” by presenting three of Buster’s finest and funniest silent comedy shorts, including Buster’s mini masterpieces The Play House (1921), The Boat (1921) and The Electric House (1922), which will be screened along with rare archival clips and surprises from collectors & libraries around the world.

With live accompaniment from muliti-instrumentalist Stephen Horne.’

And second…

‘The Goodies: The Musical Phenomenon
with Bill Oddie
SUN 28 JAN 0930hrs Watershed £8.00/£6.00
The much-loved television comedy series The Goodies drew tens of millions of fans each week in 1974-75. An exceptional feature of the show, however, was Bill Oddie’s series of extraordinary musical compositions, which exploded into the mainstream pop charts, while songs such as ‘The Inbetweeners ‘and ‘Funky Gibbon’ became top selling chart hits.  Tim, Bill and Graeme found themselves appearing on Top of The Pops alongside the top musical acts of the time.
Bill Oddie in conversation with author and comedy historian Robert Ross talks candidly about his work writing songs for the long running TV series, their chart successes, and what it was like being bona fide pop star in the 70s.’

For Clue/Comedy/Barry Cryer fans…

‘Why I Love…..The Two Ronnies
with Barry Cryer 
SAT 27 JAN 1115hrs Bristol Old Vic £15.00

‘And in a packed programme...' national comedy treasure Barry Cryer discusses his working relationship and friendship with legendary comic actors Ronnie Barker and Ronnie Corbett. Illustrated with classic clips and hosted by writer and comedy historian Robert Ross, this is a rare chance to rediscover the joyous comedy of one of our best-loved comedy double acts with someone who both wrote for them and knew them well.’
