Oh Goody!

An unforgettable evening in the company of one of the funniest and best-loved comedy performers of our time as he discusses his long career with the writer and broadcaster Chris Serle.

What do John Cleese, Orson Welles and Alexander Armstrong all have in common? The answer is they have all worked with comic actor Tim Brooke Taylor and if this good-humoured question and answer session is anything to go by, they would all have greatly enjoyed the experience. (Goodies Rule OK)

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.

This was a truly enjoyable evening, packed with laughter, that passed all too quickly. (Kidderminster Shuttle)

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 Sevvie 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.

In a 50-year career which has brought laughter to millions, he did speak about one very dark spot - when The Goodies' brand of comedy was praised by clean-up TV campaigner Mary Whitehouse. Their response? An hilarious send up called How to Make a Baby by Doing Dirty Things – which included giving flowers and chocolates, undressing but remaining covered by duvets, and shaking hands (Shropshire Star)
