Today, Monday 16th April 2018, is the centenary of Spike Milligan’s birth.

He was born Terence Alan Milligan in Ahmed Nagar or Ahmadnagar, near Bombay in India on the 16th April 1918. He was the first-born child to an Irish-born officer in the British army, Leo Alphonso Milligan (1890-1969), and his wife, Florence Winifred, née Kettleband (1893-1990).

In 1994, spike was awarded a lifetime achievement comedy award… and his acceptance speech was oh so typical of this great man. See the video of that historical moment here.

After The Goon Show, Spike wrote and performed in radio, stage, film, and television, and wrote many books. Without Spike, western comedy might have been a very different kettle of kippers.
