De Roy Smiles


Résumé: Under pressure to write The Goon Show to end all Goon shows, Spike Milligan is planning his escape from a mental institution dressed in only his pyjamas. After applying to the British Museum to get his marbles back, he starts to lose his grip on reality and threatens to kill Eccles, the most famous Goon character. Ying Tong is an hilarious and touching insight into the mind of comic genius Spike Milligan who was an inspiration for comedians from Monty Python to The League of Gentlemen and loved by many including Nicholas Parsons and Prince Charles.
