Writer for The Frankie Howerd Show, Carry On Sergeant, The Bed-Sitting Room, The Goon Show, and many more, John Antrobus brings his delightfully absurd skill to World War I, with the help of three horses.
"We all know horses stopped talking out loud thousands of years ago,
probably because of ones like George. When he stopped communicating
his scrambled ideas about Empire free trade, and he was probably right,
the Germans were worried about being squeezed out of the world
markets — though I don’t even know if he said it — the silence became
filled with a steady rumbling sound from the direction of the Front. The
artillery barrage we were laying down meant an attack was imminent.
Even miles away we could feel the ground vibrate beneath our hooves."
