The Milligan Papers

  • Hull Minster South Church Side Hull, England, HU1 United Kingdom (map)

Celebrating 100 years of Spike Milligan, this anarchic “Goon Show from the 1980’s”, written by his longstanding (someone fetch him a chair!) collaborator John Antrobus for BBC Radio, is a fresh, vibrant salute to one of the all-time geniuses of British comedy.

This spirited revival premiers from Hambledon Productions (Just Like That! The Tommy Cooper Show and Steptoe and Son) and is chock-full of zany, Milligan-esque humour. Revel in a surreal take on Jonah and the Whale, that “cake” elusive Pimpernel and the incredible case of the vanishing Flying Scotsman. All this – and less! – in The Milligan Papers.
