About Nick

'Gad, a professional idiot.'

By day, Nick Reeve is a professional writer and journalist specialising in financial services. By night, he is mostly asleep.

My love of The Goon Show began when, as a child, I listened to cassette recordings of shows (a great parental tactic for keeping me and my brother entertained during mealtimes).

I lived in London for many years, but have recently escaped to Barbados, of all places.

Seagoon: 'A professional idiot? Then why are you leaving England?'

Eccles: 'Too much competition.'
