Last Goon Show Of All, The

PUBLISHED: 10th June 2015
ANNOTATION:
From 1952 to 1960 THE GOON SHOW spawned a cult of quick-fire humour as radio's most influential clowns. Driven by an inspired lunacy they wrenched conventional comedy into a new era, a forerunner to Monty Python. For the BBC's 50th Anniversary in 1972, the archives delivered three coffins before a distinguished audience at the Camden Theatre in London. They contained three legends of entertainment history. SPIKE MILLIGAN - the well known typing error, script writer and voice of Eccles, Moriarty, Little Jim and Minnie Barrister. PETER SELLERS - alias Major Bloodnok, Bluebottle and Henry Crun, practising his comeback by whistling from Hamlet. HARRY SECOMBE - bold, toothless, Welsh and weighing in at thirty-seven stone. Also the brains and brawn behind Neddy Seagoon, dressed in a floral cretonne frock as the Goons take their final bow in this - their last performance after twelve years of silence. This rare performance is a lasting tribute to their genius, demonstrating the combined manic brilliance of Milligan, Sellers and Seacombe is as fresh and funny as yesterday. Goon, but by no means forgotten!
