The Best of Spike Milligan (DVD)
Arguably the greatest comedian to have emerged in post-war Britain, Spike Milligan came into television from the seminal radio comedy The Goons. Spike's TV output was to lose none of that show's anarchic, surreal and devastatingly funny humour, as his series Q (1968-1980) and There's A Lot Of It About (1982) broke every known television and comedy rule in sketch after sketch of nonsensical brilliance. This compilation captures the highlights of those series, including such classic sketches as The Eurovision Joke Contest, Spike as the singing Viking Maiden, insects auditioning for a David Attenborough series and much more assorted lunacy from the world of an indisputable comic genius. From the Back Cover Some remember him from The Goons, some through his army autobiographies or his poems, but it is his work on television that has stamped Spike Milligan's surreal, chaotic and devastatingly funny humour on the nation's imagination. This compilation features classic moments such as The Lost Forever in the Bermuda Triangle Holiday, the Eurovision Joke Contest, Michael Parkinson at the Soldierama Massage Parlour, Spike as the singing Viking Maiden and loads more assorted lunacy from the world of an indisputable comic genius.
