15 amusing quotes by Spike Milligan to raise a smile

I love to read amusing quotes by Spike Milligan. He was undoubtedly a man with a funny bone.

In case you’re not familiar with his name, Spike Milligan was a funny, irreverent, and much-loved comedian and staple of British television and radio for many years in the post-war era, right up until he died in 2002.

Terence Alan Milligan was born in India; he was the son of a British Army captain of Irish descent and an English mother.

In addition to being a wonderful comic performer, probably best known for his work with the Goon Show, he was also a successful writer, poet, playwright, and actor.

Though he spent much of his early life in India, the majority of his adult life was spent in the United Kingdom.

However, when the Commonwealth Immigrants Act removed Indian-born Milligan’s automatic right to British citizenship in 1962, despite his service in the British Army and his father’s, he became an Irish citizen, exercising a right conferred through his Irish-born father.

I think he was a genuinely funny man, and to prove it, here are 15 of his razor-sharp quips. Enjoy them all.
