    Default Spike Milligan

    #OTD IN 2002 – DEATH OF SPIKE MILLIGAN, A COMEDIAN, WRITER, MUSICIAN, POET, PLAYWRIGHT, SOLDIER, AND ACTOR.

    ‘All I ask is the chance to prove that money can’t make me happy.’ –Spike Milligan

    Spike Milligan’s early life was spent in India, where he was born, but the majority of his working life was spent in the United Kingdom. He became an Irish citizen in 1962 after the British government declared him stateless.
    Spike Milligan, Terence Alan Patrick Seán Milligan, was born in Ahmadnagar, India. He was an Irish writer and comedian who led the comic troupe featured on the 1950s British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) radio hit ‘The Goon Show’. His anarchic sense of absurdity and unique comic genius made him a model for succeeding generations of comedians and paved the way for the Monty Python brand of alternative comedy.

    Apparently, Captain Sir Tom Moore asked to have
    'I told you I was old' engraved on his headstone
    in tribute to a joke by Spike Milligan, his favourite
    comic growing up.
