Not for me,
This review is from: Goon Show Classics (Vintage Beeb) (Audio CD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Perhaps it's a generational thing but I just didn't think anything of this. 'The Goon Show' was always a historical term for me, but I respected the work of Sellers and Mulligan in my lifetime to give this a try.
Maybe it was funny at the time, but these two episodes are anything but funny to me, now. The gags on the first one about batter pies are so puerile as to be droll, and the other one doesn't fare much better. The little musical interludes are quite interesting though.
I don't think The Goon Show has, say, the overarching appeal of Monty Python, but if you liked The Goon Show the first time this is probably for you.
