About the Author
Spike Milligan was perhaps best known as one of the Goons. He went on to become one of Britain's foremost comic writers and performers. His bestselling titles include Adolf Hitler: My Part in His Downfall, Puckoon and Where have all the Bullets Gone? He died in 2002. Larry Stephens was a scriptwriter who wrote for several popular comedy shows in the 1950s, including The Tony Hancock Show and The Army Game. He is probably best known as co-writer of many Goon Show episodes, along with Spike Milligan. He died in 1959. Maurice Wiltshire was a screenwriter and script editor who wrote for many television programmes including The Army Game and HMS Paradise. He co-wrote several episodes of The Goon Show, as well as adapting 26 of the radio scripts for two series of a 15-minute television puppet show called The Telegoons.

This is classic with a big C; I grew up listening to this and other Post War radio shows since a TV did not arrive until 1973 - Thank God for that.
If you don't get this humour, and the rest of these priceless shows like Beyond Our Ken, |Gerard Hoffnung, Flanders and Swan, , the Goons, Men from the Ministry, Al Read, I'm Sorry I haven't a Clue, and the piece de resistance Round the Horne there is no hope for you.
I would say it anyway but these guys and gals - just listen to Betty Marsden doing her Daphne Whitethigh take off of Fanny Craddock and squirm when she does her Dame Celia Molestrangler skit of Celia Johnson - and to a certain extinct their American cousins of the same vintages - my daughter can also recite the whole of a Best of Stan Freberg CD with all the accents- are in a different Solar system compared to the utterly dreadful tripe and claptrap that serves as adult humour today - Paul Merton and Peter Kay excepted.
Utterly priceless and IMHO timeless if you take the trouble to know the history of Britain from the Great War onwards.
