Radio Prune’s sporting twist on ballet and Jack the Ripper exposed!

A ‘Best Of’ revival of the BBC classic comedy with a new cast, new musicians, new gags and old favourites

‘I'm Sorry I'll Read That Again’ was a seminal BBC Radio comedy, spawning ‘The Goodies’ and ‘Monty Python's Flying Circus’ and was the forerunner to ‘I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue’. It featured John Cleese, Graeme Garden, Bill Oddie, Tim Brooke-Taylor, David Hatch and Jo Kendall.

The show's mix of anarchic madness, 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.

A four-part ‘Best Of’ revival radio series coming off the back of a critically-acclaimed and sold out theatre tour with guest cameos by Graeme Garden, Tim Brooke-Taylor and Jo Kendall at every venue.

Conceived, adapted and directed by Barnaby Eaton-Jones, from scripts and songs by Graeme Garden and Bill Oddie.

Starring Hannah Boydell, David Clarke, Barnaby Eaton-Jones, William KV Browne and Ben Perkins.

Musical accompaniment of The Farrington Four.

Produced by Barnaby Eaton-Jones.
