Barry Cryer

Barry Cryer appearing at this event

One of the country's greatest comic writers, and unchallenged King of the One-Liner. Barry has appeared in TV and radio shows spanning the over four decades, and is star of Radio 4's top-rated comedy quiz show I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue. Barry has written for such notable greats as Frankie Howerd, Bruce Forsyth, The Two Ronnies, Tommy Cooper, Les Dawson and Morecambe and Wise in their heyday. 'He's like a very generous jukebox - you put a penny in and get 10 songs back' (The Independent).

Tim Brooke-Taylor

Well before his incarnation as a TV 'Goodie', Tim Brooke-Taylor helped re-shape radio comedy in the pioneering sketch series I'm Sorry, I'll Read That Again together with fellow Goodies Graeme Garden and Bill Oddie plus David Hatch, Jo Kendall and a certain son of Weston-super-Mare who was to find post-Python fame as a demented Torquay hotelier, John Cleese. He passed away in April 2020, as a result of COVID-19.

Graeme Garden

Graeme Garden appearing at this event

Possibly best-known for being on third of BBC TV's 'The Goodies', Graeme Garden, along with Tim Brooke-Taylor, Bill Oddie, John Cleese, David Hatch and Jo Kendall, was part of the radical new comedy movement spearheaded by 'I'm Sorry, I'll Read That Again', pre-dating so-called alternative comedy by a couple of decades.

Rob Brydon

Rob Brydon appearing at this event

This Swansea-born radio and TV presenter got his big break in 2001 with a series of short comedy monologues, 'Marion And Geoff', which were shown on BBC2. This was followed by further TV appearances as Keith Barret, presenter of a spoof chat show and, perhaps most notably, Bryn West in the sitcom 'Gavin & Stacey'. Rob's career began at Radio Wales at the age of 20 where he narrated many radio shows, adverts and animated films, as well as later appearing on television shows and films. His stand-up shows have been equally successful, with sold out shows around the UK. His film work includes The Huntsman: Winter’s War, Cinderella and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. In 2017 in London's West End he starred opposite Sir Kenneth Branagh in The Painkiller. His other theatre credits include Future Conditional at The Old Vic and A Chorus of Disapproval at The Harold Pinter Theatre.
