At Last the 1948 Show - Live! in Chicago Sept 15, 2017
more from same (British Comedy)
British ComedyFor any "At Last The 1948 Show" fans in the Chicago, IL area - a live version of sketches from the 1967 television show (written by John Cleese, Graham Chapman, Tim Brooke-Taylor, and Marty Feldman) will take place Sept 15th. The cast for "At Last the 1948 Show - Live!" includes Camilla Cleese (yes, daughter of John).

More details and a link for purchasing tickets can be found at
http://www.ticketfly.com/event/1515248-last-1948-show-live-chicago/

Here's the show's description from that website: "At Last the 1948 Show -- LIVE!
After 50 years of preparation, rare sketches from one of British television’s silliest shows are being presented in America for the very first time for two weeks only.

“At Last the 1948 Show—Live” is written by John Cleese, Graham Chapman, Tim Brooke-Taylor and Marty Feldman, and the cast is headed by Camilla Cleese (who is no relation to Chapman, Brooke-Taylor, or Feldman), with Isabeau Dornevil, Iris Kohler, Lauren Lonergan, Kristen Lundberg, and Lauren Pizzi—an all-female cast (if you don’t include Kim “Howard” Johnson, Michael McCarthy, and Bill Russell, although they are also in the cast).
The live show is produced and directed by Johnson in association with Wing Commander Muriel Volestrangler, F.R.H.S. and Bar, and the iO Chicago.

“At Last the 1948 Show” aired on British television in 1967. Afterward, the network realized they could save a little money by recording over these comedic masterworks, and it was only through the tireless efforts of Wing Commander Volestrangler and others that copies have been found and scripts reconstructed. While a few of these sketches were later re-recorded by Monty Python, and others can be found in the darkest corners of the internet, many simply don’t exist anymore. But now, Chicago audiences can experience them live on stage for the first time ever.

Camilla Cleese, with Isabeau Dornevil, Iris Kohler, Lauren Lonergan, Kristen Lundberg, and Lauren Pizzi—an all-female cast (if you don’t include Kim “Howard” Johnson, Michael McCarthy, and Bill Russell)"

Graeme & Bill participating in Slapstick 2017 festival
more from same (British Comedy)
British ComedyGraeme Garden and Bill Oddie will once again be participating in the annual Slapstick Festival.  Slapstick 2017 will be held January 18th - 22nd in Bristol, England.

The full festival schedule can be found at http://www.slapstick.org.uk/.  Note that in addition to the events with the Goodies there are also events with Barry Cryer, Colin Sell, and a celebration of "The Young Ones" with Alexi Sayle, Nigel Planer & series co-writer Lise Mayer.

Here are the Goodies-related events:

1."Robin and Not Josie's Book Shambles: The Goodies
Watershed | 1.20pm | Tickets: 9.00/6.50

The hugely popular podcast 'Robin and Josie's Book Shambles' comes to Slapstick to interrogate Graeme Garden and Bill Oddie on the books they made as two thirds of the TV comedy trio The Goodies (1970 - 1982). They'll also be talking about the making of The Goodies Disaster Movie and about the books and the authors that have inspired them.

Sadly, Josie Long is showing off in New York, but there will be a special guest co-host announced soon.


2. Accidentally Preserved: Surviving Slapstick on 16mm
Watershed | 9.30am | Tickets: 8.00/6.00

Slapstick comedy shorts were excellent fodder for home movie companies of the 1920s and 1930s. Kodascope and Pathescope rented or sold safety film prints for people to watch in their homes, not realising that decades later they would out-survive the 35mm versions originally in circulation. This programme contains hilarious rare slapstick shorts starring comedy stars whose work has been largely forgotten.

This event has been curated by Ben Model (silent film historian, accompanist and filmmaker) and will be hosted by Goodie Bill Oddie and Infinite Monkey Cage (Radio 4) star Robin Ince.

With live accompaniment from Guenter A. Buchwald.

RIP Sir George Martin
more from same (British Comedy)
British ComedyWe're very sorry to hear that Sir George Martin has passed away - he worked with Tim Brooke-Taylor and Bill Oddie as producer of  the 1963 album of their Footlights Revue "Cambridge Circus" (other members of the cast were Anthony Buffery, John Cleese, David Hatch, Jo Kendall,  and Chris Stuart-Clark).  The "Cambridge Circus" revue later moved to the radio and became "I'm Sorry I'll Read That Again".

"I'm Sorry I'll Read That Again...Again" in Cheltenham Feb 19, 2016
more from same (British Comedy)
British ComedyComing up at The Bacon Theatre in Cheltenham on February 19th - "I'm Sorry I'll Read That Again...Again" - from the event's Facebook Page: "Performed on stage in classic radio comedy style with music and sound effects, The OFFSTAGE Theatre Group recreates the anarchic and deliciously surreal cult comedy show that laid waste to BBC Radio in the 60s and 70s.
A Greatest Hits compilation of original material by Graeme Garden and Bill Oddie, this knockabout show celebrates the radio series that gave birth to The Goodies and Monty Pythons Flying Circus - not to mention Im Sorry I Havent A Clue."
