Goodies Podcast #73 - Keaton Rules, OK?

Tim Brooke-Taylor, Graeme Garden and Bill Oddie... our comedy Gods. We are honored to know their comedic brilliance through The Goodies - the slapstick, the witty cutting remarks, the perfect set ups for the well-timed falls. But who influenced them? Who were the stars of their youth that they studied as they honed their own acting skills? Who are the Comedy Gods our Superchaps Three worship? And do those Gods still pack a punch today?

In this, the first of an infrequent series, we look back at the work of Buster Keaton, the silent film comedy star from America, who both Tim and Graeme have said they were heavily influenced by. Having never seen any of his work before, both Steve and Megan sit down on the Commentary Couch to see if watching Keaton is like watching a Goodies episode, and to try to spot any Goodies parallels in these silent classics that are nearly 100 years old.

As Buster himself would say... "             "

So sit back and enjoy this extra long Goodies Podcast, and the brilliance of The Great Stone Face.
