Arguably the greatest comedian to have emerged in post-war Britain, Spike Milligan came into television from the seminal radio comedy The Goons. Spikes TV output was to lose none of that shows anarchic, surreal and devastatingly funny humour, as his series Q (1968-1980) and Theres A Lot Of It About (1982) broke every known television and comedy rule in sketch after sketch of nonsensical brilliance.
This compilation captures the highlights of those series, including such classic sketches as The Eurovision Joke Contest, Spike as the singing Viking Maiden, insects auditioning for a David Attenborough series and much more assorted lunacy from the world of an indisputable comic genius.

the material would be frowned upon (but bear in mind society, culture and comedy back then were totally different and what is perceived as funny or hilarious now in 2015 may well be frowned upon 45 years from now). Now if you, like myself are a massive fan of all things milligan then this DVD is
for you and if you are just curious about Spike, then you can't go far wrong than checking this out, and seeing the comic genius who influenced
Monty Python and was considered to be a massive inspiration to the alternative comedy scene of the 80's, And if you are just curious about Spike there was more to the man than just the material on this DVD. Check out his books, poetry and his ground breaking work with The Goons
This man re-defined British comedy and here, they have collected some of his memorable sketches.
Sadly, there are still quite a number of my favourites left out, hence only four stars. There are, nevertheless, several other DVDs of this mans inspired madness, so I may still get hold of my ideal treasures.
