In the year of his hundredth birthday, the late, great Goon himself - Spike Milligan - granddaddy of modern comedy - looks back on his life, forward to his holidays and down the back of the sofa for his trousers. It says here. Larner and Stockwell - two men with beards - sift through the madness and find only more of it.

Open/closeReviews and Quotations

'A Sockful of Custard's inventive tale of Spike Milligan's life is as poignant as it is wonderfully bonkers (as you would expect)’
- Dan Renton-Skinner (aka Angelos Epithemous)
"Jeremy and Chris muse upon, and amuse us with, a tender and idiosyncratic appreciation of the equally tender and madly idiosyncratic genius that was Milligan. A delightful hour in delightful company…” -
Terry Johnson, playwright
"A Sockful of Custard is a 5* triumph. @jeremystockwell is Spike Milligan & @chrislarner is superb too. Go see it."
