'Name that Goon' competition!

To celebrate Glarnies, Green Berets & Goons reaching 33% funding, I'm launching a competition called, NAME THAT GOON!

It seems that the majority of Goon Show fans can 'do' the voices of the characters, including HRH The Prince of Wales!

The first part of the competition is open to anyone, regardless of whether they've backed Glarnies or not but the second part is for supporters only.


Record a short advert (maximum 45 seconds) for Glarnies, Green Berets & Goons in the voice(s) of Goon Show character(s), upload it to YouTube and then email the link to me at by Friday 22 September. I will then post all the entries on Twitter from my @lsggbg account and also as an update here.

Points will be awarded to each advert as follows:

  • Glarnies, Green Berets & Goons supporter: 25 points
  • Each retweet: 2 points
  • Each Twitter like: 1 point
  • Each vote (see PART TWO): 5 points


Supporters will be able to vote for their favourite advert by emailing me on


The creator of the advert with the highest number of points can choose from the following prizes:

  • A copy of Memories of Milligan signed by Norma Farnes
  • The Goon Show Compendium Volume Six, Series 7, Part 2 on CD
  • London Entertains, Climb up the Wall and Calling All Cars on a Region 0 DVD
    (London Entertains is a 1951 documentary tour conducted by Eamonn Andrews which includes a BBC Studio trip to see “The Goons of radio fame”)

Everyone who votes will be entered into a draw for the remaining two prizes!
