Goon fans pay tribute to Spike Milligan's mayhem

The Fear of Wages. Napoleon's Piano. Dr Jekyll and Mr Crun. A Sockful of Custard. Spike Milligan devotees will probably recognise these titles of The Goon Show, the series that changed the face of British comedy in the Fifties.

In fact one of the titles is fake, having been created by a pair of fiftysomething fanboys as a tribute to Milligan on the centenary of his birth.

A Sockful of Custard is written and performed by Chris Larner and Jeremy Stockwell and opens on the Fringe. It has been a labour of love, not least because the two men have had no access to any original Milligan material.
