the Goon Show LIVE!

John Cleese with the Goons

John Cleese with the Goons

The Goons gave their penultimate performance, this time in front of TV cameras on August 8, 1968. The script or the “Tale of Men’s Shirts” was on air before but used once more since Milligan wasn’t able to come up with a new one in due time.

John Cleese is a fan of the Goons; apparently he listened to them as a boy… ah, those formative years…. and then decades later, he plays with the Goons in that wonderful episode ‘Tales of Men’s Shirts’.

This is the first of 3 clips…  you can find the rest on our YouTube Channel.
