The World is FULL of Goon-type-NUTS
…and we’re pleased to note that a few of them turn up at our shows. At last Saturday’s Yulefest Dinner and Show, we had a room full of them.
One of their number was Gary from Rozelle, who sent us this wonderful note, which we’ve pasted here in full;
My Dad is a Goon Show nut and introduced me and my ears to the show at a very young age. When I heard there was a live version, I had to go and see it.
I can’t wait to tell my Dad, back in the old country, about it he (and his ears) will be extremely jealous.
The show was great! Three (and a bit) Goon Shows performed by a group of very impressive soundalike actor-type performers who were obviously enjoying it as much as I was.
The musical interludes featured a very impressive guitarist/vocalist who ably filled the spots of the indisposed Max Geldray and Ray Ellington. The performances were fitted between the courses of the meal we were having, which worked quite well.
It was a great evening – well worth the trip and the money and I’d recommend it to all comedy fans. After all, this is where it all began!
Waits for next show to go to…
We couldn’t put it any better Gary – and thanks our steaming friend, we’d love to see you at another one of our shows.
