Inside The House of Fun with Milligan, Sykes, Galton & Simpson.

This is the story of how a golden age of British comedy was launched in the most unlikely setting - above a greengrocer's in West London.

On any weekday morning, if you clambered over the crates of fruit and veg, climb the five flights up the rickety staircase and enter 'Associated London Scripts', you would find Spike Milligan, Eric Sykes, Ray Galton and AlanSimpson, shaping the latest shows, swapping the odd story and searching for a line.

Spike & Co takes us on an enthralling journey inside their house of fun, moving from the bright optimism of the early 1950s, to the comedies and crises of the 1960s.

Together, this eclectic bunch were responsible for a golden age in British comedy, which included The Goons, Hancock's Half Hour, Sykes, Steptoe and Son, The Frankie Howerd Show, Round the Horne, That Was The Week That Was, and Till Death Us Do Part.
