Juggling socks is one of the things that Spud and Gromit do in Sockland.
Join them at our School Holiday show in the Blue Mountains, and go on an adventure in Sockland.
Not that we’re into blowing our trumpet… well not too hard… but the opening night of The Goon Show LIVE! on Saturday 23rd June is SOLD OUT! There are still good tickets available for the rest of our dinner and show dates, so if you’re hoping to experience the Best British Belly Laugh Down Under, you better get into gear… food, British Comedy, great times – perfect!
Spike Milligan, the primary writer of the BBC comedy The Goon Show – in which he also performed, – was born this day, 16th April, 100 years ago in 1918.
For those of you who have a special love of British comedy, Spike was one of the geniuses who effectively wrote the rule-book for western comedy. Without him, Ponty Python, The Goodies, Are You Being Served, ‘Allo ‘ Allo, Dad’s Army, Steptoe and Son and so many other classic comedies might have been quite different indeed. John Cleese is on record as saying that Monty Python might never even have existed if it wasn’t for The Goon Show.
Certainly without Spike’s Goons, my show The Goon Show LIVE! – an homage to the originals – would not have happened.
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 on the official Goon Show LIVE! web-site.
Thank you Spike.
2018 will be The Goon Show LIVE!’s 6th consecutive appearance as part of the Blue Mountains Yulefest season… and this one’s going to be CraZy!
Due to the demand for this show and the numbers of returning audiences, we’ve moved to a larger venue; the absolutely stunning Grand Ballroom at the Palais Royale in Katoomba.
To get you in the mood and help with your plans, we are offering special Early-bird tickets for only $99 per person, including booking fees.
Please note that these Early-bird tickets are only available online.
Once these tickets run out, the full-price tickets will be available for $130 per person, with some great group booking offers.
So get your family and friends together, and get in touch with your inner-Goon.
Here’s a treat for all those Goon Show fans who have been eager for more of that special brand of British Comedy… a special twilight Sydney Harbour cruise with The Goon Show LIVE!
Join the lads cruising Sydney Harbour on the Rhythm Boat for their special twilight show, featuring three watery original episodes from the BBC series.
Laugh out loud when Little Jim falls in the water, taking The Famous Eccles, Bluebottle, Neddie Seagoon and the rest of the Goons on their nautical (or naughty) adventures.
All your favourite Goon Show characters will be featured including those conniving cads Grytpype-Thynne and Moriarty, and our beloved idiotic couple Henry Crun and Minnie Bannister.
The Goon Show LIVE! is the perfect blend of situation comedy, radio theatre and absolute lunacy all rolled into one boat-rocking giggle-fest!
All our shows feature musical interludes, featuring our very own musical maestro Andrew. Russell.
Here’s a video (on our YouTube channel) of him performing the classic song ‘It Had To Be You’ at last Sunday’s show.
Last night’s Yulefest dinner and show at the Metropole was as CraZy as it gets!
We ended up having to find an IMPOSTER! because our own John Stretton a.k.a. Peter Sellers was struck down by a severe case of the Lurgi the night before and was unable to perform.
So while John was resting up (probably with a Brandy or two), we procured the services of accomplished actor and voice-over artiste Peter McAllum, who stepped up and onto the stage with the rest of the lads… and they had one wild time up there.
So did the audience given the clamour for photos with the cast after the show. Here’s a pic of few of those fans with our imposter Peter, and Robin (Spike) Queree.
Today’s special afternoon tea and show is on at 3pm… there a few tickets left, which you’d better grab because all the rest of the tickets for next week’s closing show are sold out.
