Birmingham Comedy Festival and Fred Theatre present:
The highly esteemed GOON SHOW!
Relive the lunacy of Spike Milligan, Peter Sellers and Harry Secombe as Seagoon, Eccles, Bluebottle, Major Bloodnok and Minnie uncover the dark secret of THE HOUSE OF TEETH, while a devilish case of Government misspending reveals a seemingly impossible invention in THE JET-PROPELLED GUIDED NAAFI.
Birmingham Comedy Festival and Fred Theatre present a rare chance to see two classic Milligan radio scripts performed on stage, complete with live sound effects and jazz band.
Touring from 8-12 February 2017 - see venues.
"Absolutely, utterly, 100% unmissable!" - The Goon Show Preservation Society
The Goon Show re-wrote the rules of British comedy during the 1950s, attracting radio audiences of around seven million and paving the way for Monty Python, Eddie Izzard, Steve Coogan and The Mighty Boosh - and they can still be heard on BBC radio today, 60 years later!
The sell-out success of 2014’s Birmingham Comedy Festival returns with two new surreal adventures first heard in 1956.
