Goodies ride again

24 tour dates announced

The Goodies are to tour the UK – more than 25 years after their TV show ended.

Tim Brooke Taylor and Graeme Garden will play 24 dates next spring, with Bill Oddie making contributions on video.

The Goodies Still Rule OK! was performed at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe, following a successful comeback tour of Australia, featuring all three performers, in 2005.

In the show, Tim and Graeme reminisce about the making of the TV series, which ran from 1970 to 1982, and play video clips, including scenes bits banned by Australian TV and sketches from the student revue that took them to Broadway.

Oddie\'s absence is blamed on filming commitments, but he has filmed new video inserts for the tour, which starts in Torquay on March 15. Click here for the full schedule.
