…and a Goon-type New Year from The Goon Show LIVE!
Last night’s The Goon Show LIVE! was the last gig for 2016. It was wonderful to see so many people; new faces and quite a lot of regular stalkers – sorry, fans. Now for a bit of a break, and then see what 2017 brings. In the meantime, don’t forget…
In the lead-up to our dinner and show at Hotel Blue in Katoomba, here’s John ‘Peter Sellers’ Stretton in rehearsal.
It’s a funny scene from Spike Milligan’s ‘The Missing No. 10 Downing Street”.

Another delightful conversation between Henry Crun (played by Robin Queree) and Minnie Bannister (lovingly brough to life by John Stretton), those lovebirds…
Henry! Henry Crun.
Yes, er… Minnie. Are you calling?…

JUDGE SCHNORRER: Alrite – let the prosecuting council start off his spiel. ROPESOCK: M’lud – my client, Mrs. Prunella Dirt, claims that her husband, Nugent Dirt, did deceive her in that during their courting days, right up to their marriage night, he did in fact conceal his baldness from her…
GREENSLADE: Poor Nugent Dirt – indeed he was hairless. The Phantom Head Shaver had struck. The day after, I, Wallace Greenslade, opened a little tobacco kiosk. It was that week that Nugent Dirt was taken to court by his wife. CAST: [Courtroom murmurs] FX: [Three loud gavel bangs] USHER: Silence…
SECOMBE: Midnight o’clock and a half quarter – six and seven-eighths or thereabouts! Sleeping peacefully in the Hotel Fred are the delightful young newlyweds Nugent and Mrs. Dirt. MILLIGAN: Suddenly! From their room we hear… MRS DIRT: OoooooOO! Helppppppppppp! Helpppppppppp! Helpppppppppp! Oh! Look at his bonce! Ohhh!
SECOMBE: …Mr. Greenslade? GREENSLADE: Yes, sir? SECOMBE: Tell the eager masses what we have in store for them. GREENSLADE: Rubbish. SECOMBE: Thank you. Yes, it’s rubbish – but to make it more interesting we call it… SELLERS: ‘The Phantom Head Shaver of Brighton’.
GREENSLADE: This is the BBC Home Service. FX: [Penny in mug] GREENSLADE: Thank you. Tonight’s broadcast comes to you from an Arab Stench-Recuperating Centre in Stoke Poges. The play is considered unsuitable for people. SECOMBE: Mr. Greenslade refers, of course, to the highly esteemed Goon Show.
