The Goons are one of the western world’s prime sources of the groan-worthy Dad Joke.
With lines like Ned Seagoon’s “We can’t stand around here doing nothing. People will think we’re workmen!”, it’s no wonder that Dad-type witticisms found new life.
To celebrate the gem that is The Dad Joke, The Goon Show LIVE! is appearing at the Penrith Gaels Club for two shows only over the Fathers’ Day weekend, Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd September 2018. The Saturday night show starts at 7pm, and the Sunday show is an afternoon matinee at 3pm.
Three ‘new’ original Goon Show episodes will be performed; Drums along the Mersey, The Mystery of the Marie Celeste (Solved) and The Internal Mountain.
