Blue Mountains

Today, Monday 16th April 2018, is the centenary of Spike Milligan’s birth. Spike was the primary writer of the BBC cult The Goon Show, in which he also performed.

Without his particular brand of lunacy, our flagship show The Goon Show LIVE!, an homage to the original series, would never have happened.

In 1994, spike was awarded a lifetime achievement comedy award… and his acceptance speech was oh so typical of this great man. See the video of that historical moment on the official Goon Show LIVE! website.
