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.
