Fathers Day last minute gift
- Is Dad the one in your family who always has something funny to say about any situation?
- Is your Father always ready with some quick quip?
- Does he specialise in those ‘Dad Jokes’?
The chances are that he has honed his craft listening to the ultimate ‘Dad-Joke’ clowns… The Goon Show.
For decades, The Goon Show’s influence on comedy all over the world is universally accepted… but what about the impact on the family home? For many years, long-suffering partners and children have been subjected to cries of ‘Ying tong iddle i po’, ‘Needle nardle noo’, ‘You can’t get the wood, you know’ and many other classic Goon Show lines.
The hairy-dog stories which Dad has been spinning, all have their beginnings in the tales (or is that tails?) of Henry and Min (We’ll all be murdered in our beds, Buddy), Neddy Seagoon’s adventures (Hello folks) and the famous Eccles (Fine, fine, fine).
Show Dad how much you appreciate his jokes and the way he colourfully embellishes any situation, and pick up a special Father’s Day gift. Give him a memorable night out with The Goon Show LIVE!
There are shows coming up in Sydney (October 15), Woy Woy (November 25) and the Blue Mountains (December 10 and 17), so pick up some tickets and say ‘Thanks Dad’.
