Spike is an absurdly funny new play that delves into the inner workings of one of our most unique and brilliantly irreverent comedy minds. Coming to Glasgow’s Kings Theatre from the 1st – 5th November 2022.

It’s the booming fifties, and Britain is in the clutches of Goon mania as men, women and children across the country scramble to get their ear to a wireless for another instalment of The Goon Show.

While Harry Secombe and Peter Sellers get down to the serious business of becoming overnight celebrities, fellow Goon and chief writer Spike finds himself pushing the boundaries of comedy, and testing the patience of the BBC.

Flanked by his fellow Goons and bolstered by the efforts of irrepressible sound assistant Janet, Spike takes a flourishing nosedive off the cliffs of respectability, and mashes up his haunted past to create the comedy of the future. His war with Hitler may be over, but his war with Auntie Beeb – and ultimately himself – has just begun.

Will Spike’s dogged obsession with finding the funny elevate The Goons to soaring new heights, or will the whole thing come crashing down with the stroke of a potato peeler?

Tickets are on sale now for SPIKE and will start at £13.00 for the cheapest seats and go up to £51.50 for the most expensive. The first performance will be on the 1st November 2022 and the last show will be on the 5th November 2022. Get your tickets today!
