The Goon Show LIVE! at Yulefest

Simon Lenthen is Neddie Seagoon
from Saturday 27th June 2020

Hilarious British Comedy, for 8th year in a row at Yulefest Blue Mountains

Cult comedy entertainment…

With high energy and snappy one-liners, you will be quoting these guys for Forever!

The many stories of Neddie Seagoon, a rotund and short (“Duck’s Disease, the curse of the Seagoons!”) idiot. 

This tour de overacting, incorporating lots of sound effects, silly voices and a platoon of CraZy characters, will have you in fits of laughter and drowning in your own tears.

Seagoon, a good-natured and hairy sort, is victim to a terrible weakness… GREED. Coupled with his innate gullibility, Neddie’s covetous nature makes him easy prey to confidence schemes courtesy of the conniving cads Grytpype-Thynne and Moriarty.

Featuring a plethora of characters including the world’s most famous idiot Eccles (yes, even more infamous than Neddie), the squeaky-voiced boy-scout Bluebottle (who reads his stage-directions out loud), Major Dennis Bloodnok a devout coward, and Miss Minnie Bannister the sexy senior citizen who lives in sin with crumbling, fumbling old man Henry Crun.

Live Music

This year, The Goon Show LIVE! at Yulefest will feature a live band!

Those in the know are well aware of the important contribution of the musical talents of Wally Stott, Ray Ellington, Max Geldray and the army of London-based session musicians were to the Goon Show . 

While we cannot replicate the wonderful Ray Elligton Quartet or Wally Stott’s orchestra, this year’s Goon-type experience will be elevated by the addition of talented musicians hand-picked by our much-loved maestro, who our audiences are already well familiar with, Andrew Russell.

This band will play the interludes, links and so-on, as well as joining in the with the odd sound effects to add that authentic Goons touch.
