Review:

‘Wonderful anthology. A superbly sustained piece of comedy. Like so mush else in this collection, these excerpts inspire a return to the source.’ Chris Power, The Times

‘The most comprehensive compendium of the troubled genius' work. This volume spans his entire career...making this a testament to one of our most absurdly talented comedians. Poignant, nonsensical and hilarious. The Essential Spike Milligan is a more than appropriate epitaph.’ Ben Arnold, Jockey Slut

‘A joyous and wondrous thing...Alex Games has done a fine job...A sound and neatly timed volume and perfect for filling a Milligan-shaped gap in anyone’s life.’ Marcus Berkmann, Literary Review

‘Successfully shows why Spike Milligan deserves his place at the heart of British comedy.’ Simon Webster, TLS

From the Publisher:

Spike was one of the most loved and influential figures in post war comedy. This collection, compiled by Alexander Games is the essential volume for fans both young and old as well as the perfect introduction for those wishing to get to know him a little better.
Foreward written by Eddie Izard
