News: Slapstick Festival To Launch Poll To Find All-Time Best Goodies

Bristol’s Slapstick festival (AKA the UK’s biggest celebration of silent and classic screen comedy) will be launching an online poll on Monday 25 November to find the public’s all-time favourite of the 77 television shows made by THE GOODIES between 1970 and 1982? 

The winning episode will then get a full screening at an event at the Redgrave Theatre, Bristol on Saturday 25 January marking that 2020 is the 50th anniversary of THE GOODIES first airing  on the BBC and at which all three members of the trio – Tim Brooke-Taylor, Graeme Garden and Bill Oddie – will be present, sharing anecdotes from the making of the series. 

The poll will use a shortlist chosen by The Goodies and some of their many celebrity fans including Omid Djalili, Tony Hawks, Peter Lord of Aardman, Matt Lucas, and Tim Vine. It will run until the end of this year on the festival’s website – – and its Twitter account – @SlapstickFest


More details on this will come very soon!
