This event has been and gone.
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.

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.
