The Goon Show LIVE!

about the show...

Bryan directed and co-produced a season of The Goon Show LIVE! for the 2013 Yulefest Blue Mountains festival, which sold out so quickly, he presented two extra shows for the Father’s Day weekend that year. 

This first show was presented at the historic Paragon, Australia’s oldest cafe and chocolate maker. It was presented as a dinner & show for the Blue Mountans’ annual Yulefest celebrations; a southern hemisphere tradition also known as Christmas-in-July. 

The show featured three original The Goon Show episodes were writted (sic) by Spike Milligan;

  • A Christmas Carolseries 10, episode 1, first broadcast 24 December 1959
  • The International Christmas Puddingseries 6, episode 9, first broadcast 15 November 1955
  • The Raid of the International Christmas Puddingseries 6, episode 17, first broadcast 3 January 1956

 

This initial season ran from the 29th June to 3rd August 2013. It was a huge success, so at the last minute we decided to put on a special show for Father’s Day. Another success, and it was the springboard for the future of TGSL! as Australia’s very own homage to the original Goons.

Since then the toured to regional NSW and Sydney, and was annually featured as part of the Blue Mountains’ Yulefest (Christmas in July) festivities.

Unfortunately the Dreaded Lurgi (otherwise known as Covid-19) ceased all productions.

The Goon Show LIVE! is the perfect night of British comedy, with high energy and snappy one-liners that audiences are quoting for days, weeks and months afterward.

The shows are based on the original broadcasts which starred Spike Millgan, Peter Sellers and Harry Secombe. As well as the original scripts, the shows include unique sound effects engineered especially for the shows.

Over the life of this show the cast changed from time to time and audiences were treated to some wonderful talent.

Unfortunately the Dreaded Lurgi (otherwise known as Covid-19) ceased all productions.

Bryan is planning a comeback. Please subscribe to be informed of any news as it come to hand.
