An Audience with Tim Brooke-Taylor and Chris Serle
From President of The Footlights Club at Cambridge University; touring internationally with the ‘Footlights’ revue in 1964; on BBC Radio with ‘I’m Sorry, I’ll Read That Again’ and moving into television with ‘At Last the 1948 Show’; working together with old Cambridge friends John Cleese and Graham Chapman ….he is most well known as a member of The Goodies, starring in the television series throughout the 1970s and picking up international recognition in Australia and New Zealand. He has also appeared as an actor in various sitcoms, and has been a panellist on I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue for over 40 years.
We are delighted to present this true master of comedy as he shares a wealth of great stories and anecdotes from his career on stage, screen and radio including, of course, “The Goodies” and “I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue”.
There are plenty of surprises too. Tim 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. We’ll hear stories about John Cleese, Richard Wilson, Graeme Garden, Bill Oddie and many more. With luck Tim may just 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
This was a truly enjoyable evening, packed with laughter, that passed all too quickly.
This promises to be an exceptional evening of conviviality, anecdotes, and laughter.
