The series is based upon a crazy type of fun evolved by four of our younger laughter-makers. The members of this entertainingly eccentric quartet are old friends: they met during the wartime perambulations of the 'Stars in Battle-dress.' Since then Secombe and Sellers have joined the successful company who can top-the-bill. Ex-Etonian Michael Bentine has won his spurs in the West End and Spike Milligan is making a reputation both as a comedian and writer (it is he who has compiled the 'Goon Show' material). Now it remains to be seen what will happen when their differing brands of comedy are fused in one show.
