If you want to experience the very real pleasure of hearing a true master of comedy share a wealth of great stories and anecdotes from a 50 plus year career on stage, screen and radio head for Yarm near Stockton Tees tghis weekend.

For their at Yarm School you can hear comedian, actor and man of many parts Tim Brooke-Taylor present Oh Goody!  - a brilliant evening that finds him in conversation with journalist, broadcaster and one-time That’s Life! stalwart Chris Serle

This wonderfully entertaining event finds, as you might expect, Tim recalling tales from The Goodies and I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue but there are plenty of surprises too. He relates how he directed Orson Welles in a feature film, shot a memorable round of golf with Sevvy Ballesteros, persuaded David Frost to employ Marty Feldman and played a key role in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. 

You’ll hear stories about John Cleese, Richard Wilson, Graeme Garden, Bill Oddie and many more. With luck Tim may even be persuaded to reveal the truth about Samantha and the rules of Mornington Crescent. 

Add to all this warmth and good humour plenty of clips of great moments from Tim’s TV and film appearances and you’re sure of a memorable evening of fun and laughter. An evening that’s not to be missed.

You can catch Oh Goody! with Tim Brooke-Taylor and Chris Serle on Saturday 18th May at Yarm School, The Friarage, Yarm, Stockton-on-Tees TS15 9EJ www.thepaaonline.org
