This One's For You, Mik


For those not in the know, the Goons was a radio comedy show that ran through the late 40's to almost the 60s.
They were enormously influential on many, many British comedians, Monty Python probably being the most obvious example.
The team was made up of Spike Milligan, Peter Sellers and Harry Secombe.
Spike wrote pretty much all of it and it's a rather hard show to describe.

Awesome, Michael Bentine was an earlier member also, only realized recently that they have all passed on now.

That's right.
There's an amazing Australian documentary about Spike that you may have seen.
Very candid.
See if you can find it.

You lovely fellow!
