Product Description

Book Description

Four more anarchic episodes of classic Goonery from the team that redefined comedy - Peter Sellers, Spike Milligan and Harry Secombe.

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.

Born in Oldham in 1923 Eric Sykes was first introduced to showbusiness whilst in the RAF and went on to write for hit BBC radio shows and appear in TV variety shows whilst writing for comedy greats such as Peter Sellers and Frankie Howerd. Although he is over eighty, Sykes continues to work, having recently starred in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

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.

Format: Audio CD
This is another one of the very best collections from the BBC's Goon archives. I wholeheartedly recommend all of volumes 1-11 from them, and the two EMI CDs.

Disc 1 contains two late period classics from the pen of Milligoon, The Call of The West has possibly the best use of sound effects from any episode, whilst The Last Smoking Seagoon is notable for being the very last episode from the original broadcasts. Both may be a little obscure for newcomers, but the characters are all fully developed by this point and carry the ridiculous plot devices and tangents with aplomb. Disc 2 maybe isn't quite as strong, but still great. 1985 comes from series five and is of course a parody of George Orwell's 1984, whilst Shifting Sands is superb throughout, featuring a guest appearance from ITMA's Jack Train as Colonel Chinstrap - ITMA was a forerunner of the Goons, and it's delightful how Chinstrap fits into Goon mythology with no sense of strain (STRAIN!!)

All in all, it's "very good, you know, very good indeed..."

Excellent Goonish entertainment.

My only problem is there is no clear 'chapter' segmentation of the episodes. I had to search back and forward to find the specific episode. Such a pity.
