LOCAL audiences will be spoilt for choice, when it comes to opportunities to enjoy a live revival of a classic BBC comedy show.

I'm Sorry I'll Read That Again was a seminal BBC Radio comedy, spawning The Goodies and Monty Python's Flying Circus, and it was also the forerunner to, I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue.

A spokesman said: "It featured John Cleese, Graeme Garden, Bill Oddie, Tim Brooke-Taylor, Sir David Hatch and Jo Kendall.

"This show's mix of anarchic madness, silly puns, catchphrases galore and gloriously manic characters ran from 1964 to 1973 and had a youth following that made live recordings seem more like a rock concert than a comedy show."

Now it's back, and Goodie Tim Brooke-Taylor himself is in the cast.

He said: “One of the best bits of my working life has been the cast recordings of ‘I’m Sorry I’ll Read That Again’.

"We, the cast, had huge fun, and so did the audience. Watching Barnaby Eaton-Jones and his talented team in this revival, having just as much fun, and the audience, even more so, brought back very happy memories indeed. I am excited to be re-joining the show on tour."

The new show, ‘I’m Sorry I’ll Read That Again… Again!’ has been adapted for stage by Barnaby Eaton-Jones, from scripts and songs written by Goodies Graeme Garden and Bill Oddie, no less.
