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?

The book is actually Puckoon and I read it about 25 years ago and ever the since the guy has been my hero... every comedian has benefited from his career. I went to the gig he did in the Kings Theatre in Southsea which he went on to call "a grotty little place" :-D

I shall be looking for it tomorrow cheers!

thanks for that - PUCKOON - got it somewhere - he wrote it in 1963:w00t:

the man was a genius -

Puckoon is marvelous but don't watch the film, it's abymsal. I'd also suggest reading "The Looney" which is again brilliant.

this live show is pretty bad though. Only good things were Kathy Burke and Eric Sykes. otherwise be prepared to see your favorite pieces butchered! a pound is fair value for this dvd.

Thanks for the warning on the DVD, I always enjoyed his books more than the live stuff but now Q8 was something else...:-D

He was both - but moreover a comedy genius.

Went into my local Poundland in Glasgow today and they didn't have it/hadn't heard of it.
