Surviving Spike Milligan: A Journey Through the Mind & Mirth of the Master Goon
"In comedy writer John Antrobus's magical mystery tour around the mind of Spike Milligan you will enter a world of words, written absurdities and crazy conversations. Comrades together, John and Spike produced laughter for the world and Antrobus continues that tradition gloriously within these pages." "Abandoning army life, he arrived at Milligan's office where a sign read 'Do not disturb, I'm disturbed enough already!' Antrobus was soon fighting on the front line of comedy by Spike's side. Together, they wrote several Goon shows, The Bedsitting Room and many TV sketches. John's book is a hysterically funny evocation of those mad times with scenes you couldn't invent, a Picassoesque painting where the nose - or indeed, the Milligan - is not always where you would expect to find it!"--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
