Goodies At The Fringe

Posted in Theatre on June, 01 2006 7:49 PM

If when you read the names Tim Brooke-Taylor, Graeme Garden and Bill Oddie next to each other and feel a small thrill of nostalgia and excitement, then get yourself down to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival this year because the Goodies have reformed.

Garden and Brooke-Taylor are to perform live with Bill Oddie pre-recording sections and appearing on a giant screen.

The trio will be showcasing the best of their old stuff and also performing some brand new material, and also possibly explaining exactly how they came up with some of those ideas in the first place.

For those that aren't familiar with the Goodies, they were a 1970's comedy trio that starred in their own TV series about 'an agency of three men, who can do anything, anywhere.'

The show featured a number of celebrity guests, including Michael Aspel, John Peel, Terry Wogan and Tony Blackburn, not to mention the legendary Patrick Moore.

The reunion happened after the Goodies made a stage comeback in Australia last year. The shows have been repeated often and have a huge cult following. It's hoped that that success will be repeated here.
