Noah Adams talks with Peter Bergman of Firesign Theater about British actor and comic Spike Milligan, who died today at his home at age 83. Bergman lived and worked in Europe before founding Firesign. He worked with Milligan during that time. Milligan was an influence on countless artists and groups, including the British satirical groups Beyond the Fringe and Monty Python.
