Discussion and Q&A with Tim Brooke-Taylor, Bill Oddie and Graeme Garden

The Goodies join us to discuss their fantastic legacy and relive some of the comedy magic.

Fifty years ago, three comedy talents – Tim Brooke-Taylor, Graeme Garden and Bill Oddie – came together to unleash a wave of mayhem in The Goodies, a fast-paced mélange of surreal ideas, slapstick and film trickery that resulted in a colourful ‘live-action cartoon’ that became a much-loved viewer favourite. We’re pleased to welcome Brooke-Taylor, Garden and Oddie to the BFI stage to celebrate this golden anniversary.

Tickets are available to non BFI Members from 10th March and can be booked here..

Bill Oddie has a passion for cartoons and a particular love for the more slapstick antics of Bugs Bunny, Wile E. Coyote, Road Runner, and of course Tom and Jerry. In fact, The Goodies have always cited both silent comedy and early cartoons as huge influences on their onscreen comedy. In conversation with Robin Ince, Bill shares his passion for visual comedy and reflects on his favourite moments and shorts from classic animations and his beloved cartoons.
