It’s been a lot of fun appearing at the Warrawee Bowling Club for our Rotary Club shows over the last two weeks.  Our last Sydney dinner and show is now only days away… this Saturday 29th March. Tickets are selling, so best get in quick.

The audience responses have been so extremely flattering that our chests are swelling with pride, and possibly a bit of indigestion. In fact, last night we received this complimentary email from Nik S.;

“As a fan of The Goons since the age of 12 (I am now 87 – no just kidding) they were a very large and important part of my teenage years. I read the Peter Sellers and Spike Milligan biographies and Spike’s war autobiographies and collected The Goon Show scripts. Indeed I used to tape the shows which meant at my peak I had 107 episodes on tape.

The Goons really were important to and indeed influenced who I am. I saw Spike Milligan live and was a member for many years of The Goon Show Preservation Society (GSPS), through which I met Spike Milligan.

So coming on Saturday night was very special to me. For all said above what I was looking forward to was an evening of fun. It was clear on the night that many like minded people came as well. I was not disappointed – it was huge fun – 3 Goonshows!! Fantastic.

What I found brilliant as well was that people, whom were not familiar with The Goons still came and enjoyed their evenings. This was true of my party, as I was accompanied by both my Dad and youngest daughter.

I thoroughly recommend those than can get to the show on Saturday night – do so.

Many thanks to all whom helped organise and the actors themselves, whom apart from giving great performances looked like the original Goons as well. Spike Milligan indeed was a dead ringer!”

Gosh, what else can we say, except… HURRY, book now. Our last Sydney dinner and show is on this Saturday 29th March.
