PBJ Management are pleased to announce the running of Spike Milligan's estate.
Regarded by many as the father of modern comedy, Spike Milligan began his career as an entertainer in the 1930s when he played the double bass, guitar, and trumpet in a variety of dance bands.
After the war Spike concentrated on comedy, writing the famous Goon shows. Establishing him as Britain's top comedy performer and writer. Spike founded Associated London scripts with Eric Sykes and set up an office in Shepherds Bush.
The Goons caused mayhem on radio throughout the 1950s and were hugely successful, this unique humour paved the way for a whole new style of comedy.
