Spike Milligan, Comedian, Writer, War Veteran

All the superlatives used to describe this mans comic genius have been used. Spike is regularly hailed as the man who paved the way for others to follow. Like Tommy Cooper he began performing during the war.

He became a household name through the radio show The Goon Show which he wrote and performed in alongside Peter Sellers, Harry Secombe, and Michael Bentine. Prince Charles was also a fan.

Spike was a troubled man suffering bouts of depression brought on by what we now know as PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) but was then known as shell shock.

He wrote a series of comic memoirs of his war years as well as other books and poetry and for TV series.

Prints are archivally printed onto heavyweight cotton rag paper and embossed and signed by the photographer.
