The radio show that spawned Monty Python’s Flying Circus, The Goodies and I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue is revived in Chipping Norton next week.

I’m Sorry I’ll Read That Again featured John Cleese, Graeme Garden, Bill Oddie, Tim Brooke-Taylor, Sir David Hatch and Jo Kendall. The show’s mix of anarchic madness, silly puns, catchphrases galore and gloriously manic characters ran from 1964 to 1973 and had a fervent youth following that made live recordings seem more like a rock concert than a comedy show.

And audiences at The Theatre in Chipping Norton can relive the fun when the show begins a new tour at the venue on Friday March 17.

Graeme Garden and Jo Kendall will be taking part in the action. The show has been adapted for stage from scripts and songs written by Graeme Garden and Bill Oddie and is presented by the Offstage Theatre Group.

Producer Barnaby Eaton-Jones said: “It’s a show that revels in its silliness and is the perfect tonic to take you away from the madness going on in the world around us right now.”
