Mitchell and Webb present a series of amusing and thought-provoking sketches making light of some everyday and some not-so-everyday situations. The only really downside to this book is the lack of value if you spend a credit on it. The length is only 2 hours 45 minutes, which is a very high $/minute cost compared to other titles available. Perhaps Audible could have combined all the series together for 1 credit? However it's still worth getting if you really enjoy David Mitchell's humour.
"I love this duo"
Reviving Dead Format
I refuse to pick a favorite between Robert or David. They both bring equal brilliance to the duo....okay Robert. No wait David. Bloody hell. I hate this question. Olivia Colman. There. That's an easy answer.
Nothing. This was a radio program. In fact if it were a book, I couldn't hear it at all. Unless you stuck an mp3 player in it like one of those books where you hide a gun.
Yes, it was the snooker bit, but mostly because the train door opened and it was my stop.
Seriously poor questions for this program. This is a brilliant sketch show that was done via the radio in Britain. If you like Mitchell and Webb via any of there other shows, you'll love this. If you don't like M&W then you need a doctor. If you don't know who they are, then give a listen. They are quite a funny pair.
half of these bits have been done on tv, but they still made me laugh
This is classic Mitchell and Webb. You don't need to see them to enjoy the duo!
This is a series that starts off hilarious, and gets better and better. Love it!
"Love these guys"
Absolutely, I already have.
That's a really hard choice, I thought the pit pony was funny, I liked the early morning alcoholic, they're all so funny.
Uncredited is Mitchell and Webb and they did wonderfully.
You couldn't make a film of this, too many characters.
I've liked these guys for years, they're so funny, I listen to them at work and I'm often asked if I'm ok because I'm stifling laughter.
Sharp comedy from some of the sharpest comedians around. This more than met my expectations. Maybe one bad sketch in the whole batch
I liked what I saw of Peep Show and the current sketch show but this is a must if you are a fan. Like 'Dead Ringers' their sketch humour really works as audio only (the art of making mirth from the mundane can sometimes be lost on TV).
There were more than a few moments on public transport when I must have looked like I was going into an involuntary spasm as I tried to hold back an explosive laugh. Especially the 'touching cloth' sketch which has to go down as a classic comedy moments.
Series 2 is already downloaded ready to go; although I may have to avoid listening whilst travelling so I don't get accosted by transport police.
The partnership is so good. Skit to skit, they're silly, dark, clever and a bit twisted at times. I laughed a lot...
Great comedy sketches. Classic, smart and well delivered from a hilarious group. Makes long journeys a joy.
"Funny from start to finish"
This is very, very funny - cant wait to get series 2.
I've only seen little bits of the duo, and was a bit hesitant to buy this. However, I enjoyed it so much, I'll be getting series 2 very soon. I'm not only impressed by the fresh subject matter of their comedy but also the time given to supporting cast members. Mitchell and Webb are very funny but it's nice to hear other voices join in too.
The Shaggy/Scooby Doo sketch had me spluttering out loud with laughter...
I listened to this in short bursts to cheer me up on a long train journey. Some of it is really witty.My teenage son has listened to it over and over.
"The absolute best!"
I've always loved Mitchell and Webb, whether on the radio or TV they are one of the funniest duos around. Brilliant!
