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.

Last night’s Yulefest dinner and show at the Metropole was as CraZy as it gets!

We ended up having to find an IMPOSTER! because our own John Stretton a.k.a. Peter Sellers was struck down by a severe case of the Lurgi the night before and was unable to perform.

So while John was resting up (probably with a Brandy or two), we procured the services of accomplished actor and voice-over artiste Peter McAllum, who stepped up and onto the stage with the rest of the lads… and they had one wild time up there.

Today’s special afternoon tea and show is on at 3pm… there a few tickets left, which you’d better grab because all the rest of the tickets for next week’s closing show are sold out.

Here’s Simon Lenthen aka Neddy Seagoon giving the camera the full force of the Christmas-in-July festivities.

Last Saturday’s show was a hit.

On Saturday 15th July at the Metropole Katoomba, the audience were packed in and settled down for a great night.

They especially enjoyed the special extra episode, Christmas Crackers, which has not been heard since it was first broadcast on Christmas Day 1953.

Some reviews of that night will be posted soon, but in the meantime, be sure to pick up some tickets for this weekend’;s shows; Saturday night 22nd Yulefest dinner & show, and Sunday 23rd afternoon tea and show.

The Sunday show is going be a very special one… it’s our 50th The Goon Show LIVE! performance.

Tonight’ Yulefest Dinner & Show is going to be HUGE!

The Metropole Hotel Katoomba will be bursting at the seams because we’ve sold all but the last two tickets for tonight’s show.

The Goon Show LIVE! is THE Best of British Comedy – and tonight you get it served up with a delicious Winter Yulefest Dinner; starting with Mulled Wine on arrival, a delightful 3-course meal and then the opportunity to linger over port and coffee as you mingle with the cast after the show.

The last 2 tickets are very lonely… Go on, adopt them.

Pre-show is like a mad-house really

Come to think of it, that sums up the lads when they’re on-stage too.

Who’s he calling? Could it be You?

Come and join in the general melee of silliness at this Saturday’s dinner/show at the Metropole in Katoomba for Yulefest; it’ll be a night you’ll have to phone home about.
