Oh Goody Promo Press Release

Come along to Middlesbrough Theatre on Wednesday, April 5 for an unforgettable evening in the company of one of the funniest and best-loved comedy performers of our time, Tim Brooke-Taylor, as he discusses his long career with the writer and broadcaster Chris Serle.                 

Tim Brooke-Taylor delights as he tells hilarious stories from a lifetime in comedy.

This is an evening of warmth and good humour spiced with a few revealing anecdotes about many of the names Tim has appeared with including his fellow Goodies Graeme Garden and Bill Oddie.

As a Cambridge graduate planning a sensible career in the family law firm, he shot to international stardom with the review ‘Cambridge Circus’ in the 1960s.

Doyen of Cambridge Footlights, The Goodies and I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue, Brooke-Taylor rightly remains an influential and revered figure, a man who has helped to shape an art form alongside genuine giants of the genre for more than 50 years.

The closing five minutes of the evening, a brilliant Goodies sketch from 1975 which paid tribute to the history of cinema in their own inimitable style, was a fine denouement (Wales Online)

A string of brilliant anecdotes includes Tim’s hesitant start in comedy as a schoolboy-magician, golf with Seve Ballesteros, directing Orson Welles in a feature film and an encounter with Eric Morecambe on a beach in Portugal.

The evening is generously illustrated with clips of the funniest moments from his TV and film career.
