Graeme. Clearly. The man's comic imagination is immense. Then Tim. Then Bill. How can you retire from comedy?
be sure to tell Steve Martin.
but it was all good.
And should be on the telly more often!
I have the Goodies LP - PROLEFACT
They weren't as good when they went to ITV apparently - TELLYHISTORIAN FACT
Nothing's as good when it goes to ITV.
None of the Goodies' best work was as the Goodies, anyway. They were all better on radio/when no-one had heard of them/etc.
i did meet bill oddie once. he signed his birdwatching books for me.
Let's just say I wasn't 'surprised' to find out he was an only child, if you get my drift.
I think they were funny as a trio collective, a bit like the Jam or the Gang of Four when their drummer was ill or something.
They've quite blatantly working together as The Goodies recently, so...
Toured Australia a couple of times, I think. Tim and Graeme have been up in Edinburgh this year (although Bill wasn't there because he was busy).
btw, if anyone needs a Graeme Garden fix, he's doing Hamish and Dougal on Radio 4, Thursday nights at 11.
Goodie Goodie yum yum.
