Creative, inspirational and often contrarian, Spike Milligan was one of Britain's best-loved comedians. In Memories of Milligan, his friend and manager Norma Farnes interviews those who knew him, including Eric Sykes, Denis Norden, Joanna Lumley, Michael Palin, Barry Humphries, Stephen Fry and Eddie Izzard. Rich in anecdotes and humorous exchanges, their recollections create an affectionate portrait of a brilliant man and the demons that drove him.
