Cult comedy entertainment…

Featuring 3 Original Episodes…

Tales of Old Dartmoor

Series 6, Episode 21, Tuesday 7 February 1956. Script by Spike Milligan.
How Dartmoor prison was sunk in a sea battle with the French Chateau d’If.

Nineteen Eighty-Five

Series 5, Episode 15 & 20, Tuesday 4 January 1955. Script by Spike Milligan and Eric Sykes.
The action takes place in the shallow end of an open-air swimming bath in Woodmansterne and on the grass verge of the Great North Road.

Warning; This play is unsuitable for human beings, young horses, civic dignitaries and Fred Barrington. 

The Secret Escritoire

Series 6, Episode 2, Tuesday 27 September 1955. Script by Spike Milligan and Eric Sykes.
The ghastly story of a sinister plot laid bare by the amiable discovery of a dreaded corpse in an empty matchbox (obviously not safety matches). It tells of a man’s desperate hunt to clear his name of a fearful stigma (his name is Bert Stigma). It also reveals the true truth behind the last of the great chained escritoires in Piccadilly Circus and the fiendish contents it contained.

This and other secrets will be revealed for the first time as Neddie Seagoon’s zealous hunt for the escritoire and its noisome kidnappers ranges from a deserted Chinese coffin refinery in Hither Green to the arid steam laundries of the Malay (exit Mr. Crun hotly pursued by Sax Rohmer in an experimental cardboard pullover).

(Escritoire; a bureau modified with tiroirs and pigeon-holes – Fred Oxford’s dictionary).

Happy Birthday to Us!

June 29, 2013 was the date of our inaugural performance of The Goon Show LIVE!… which means this this year’s opening night is our 6th Birthday… and this season is our 7th Yulefest!

To celebrate, every booking for opening night on Saturday 29th June, will include a FREE copy of ‘The Battle of Waterloo’, the ultimate Goon-Type Fanatic’s Gift.

We’ve teamed up with International award winning Australian cartoonist / caricaturist, Tony Kentuck.

click to see a larger version of this print.

And… here’s a delightful print of ‘The Battle of Waterloo’, rendered by Tony, featuring many of your favourite Goon show characters.

Tony has been a Goons-freak for a long time, so it made perfect sense for him to put this depiction onto paper for the enjoyment of Goons fans everywhere..

This full colour cartoon of one of history’s most epic battles by award-winning Australian Cartoonist Tony Kentuck, took over 7 years to produce; and now Tony has completed this wonderful work, you can hang it on your wall.

You could even have it autographed by the Lads after one of our shows… that would be special!

Available on The Goon Show LIVE! website for $65, this delightful print can be yours free with any booking for opening night, Saturday 20th June 2019.
