It's a mystery how a man who called Prince Charles a 'groveling little bastard' on live TV would somehow end up on the Prince's list of favorite comedians, but that was the beauty of Spike Milligan. When the man Eddie Izzard called the founder of modern comedy died in 2002, he was mourned the world over as a great loss for British entertainment. It's no wonder then that just six months after his death some of the best names in the comedy business would present a live tribute to the actor/comedian/writer with monologues, material from the Goons (a radio series he developed with Peter Sellers, Michael Bentine and Harry Secombe) and TV show Q, along with readings of Milligan's other work, namely poems and prose. This rare live performance is a true gem, both the material itself and the new interpretations. The reverence and awe these performers feel for this wonderful artist is truly inspiring. Oh, and did we mention this show is hilarious too?
