Here are some Goodies-related events:
* At Last the 1948 Show: Almost Complete! with Tim Brooke-Taylor
SAT 25 JAN 1330hrs
‘At Last the 1948 Show’ triggered a revolution destined to change the face of TV comedy forever. John Cleese, Tim Brooke-Taylor, Aimi MacDonald, Marty Feldman and Graham Chapman burst onto the nation’s small screens in an explosion of unrelated and often surreal sketches. It paved the way for both Month Python and The Goodies. With a new – as complete as it’s likely to ever be – three DVD/BluRay set released recently by BFI we thought a re-evaluation and a glimpse at the newly discovered footage with series star and Slapstick patron Tim Brooke-Taylor was long overdue. Tim will be in conversation with fan of the series Robin Ince. Followed by an audience Q&A and post-event DVD signing with Tim.
* The Goodies: 50th Anniversary
25 January 2020, 1800hrs
Redgrave Theatre £20.00
It’s almost half a century since the first episode of The Goodies hit our TV screens and made household names of it’s stars; Tim Brooke-Taylor, Bill Oddie and Graeme Garden. Join Bristol’s Slapstick Festival for an evening of mirth and mayhem as all three members of the legendary comedy team discuss the extraordinary legacy of their award-winning TV series (1970-82).
Radio 4’s Infinite Monkey Cage co-host Robin Ince hosts this onstage ‘In conversation’ event complete with a full screening of a classic episode of the show hand picked as the public’s favourite via an online poll. Followed by a Q&A with the boys. With a new audio series on Audible in the pipeline too, here’s to the next 50 years!
* Bill’s Animated Flicks With Bill Oddie
SUN 26 JAN 0930hrs
Bill Oddie has a passion for cartoons and a particular love for the more slapstick antics of Bugs Bunny, Wile E. Coyote, Road Runner, and of course Tom and Jerry. In fact, The Goodies have always cited both silent comedy and early cartoons as huge influences on their onscreen comedy.
