Annoying

I had no idea what to expect. I was hoping for a laugh but unfortunately, this humour is at the level of early high school boys. Perhaps 13 year olds may get something from it.

Very funny

If you like Nandos, laughter, prank calls or creating a laugh, this will give you a few for sure.

Annoyingly not funny, bordering on racist

The first audible book I have listened to where you have to almost force yourself to listen. Not only are the prank calls mostly just annoying to listen to rather than funny, it is also full of incredibly annoying and ridiculous sound effects. I tried to get through all the episodes but only made it about halfway before I simply could not stand listening anymore. On top of that, at times he is blatantly racist making fun of other peoples accents and nationality. Surprised Audible even have this in their selection.

Backgound Music!!!

I started to listen and really enjoyed some of the calls but the constant background music was too irritating.

I can't believe anybody though it was a good idea to add a backing track to an audio book.

Absolutely trash

I thought I love Dom Joly , but this has to be the worst ever, the horrible backing sound is so off putting and over the top, this could have been a very funny experience but in fact turned out to be annoying and has put me off Dom

Consider this...

Do not listen to this during a walk outside where you are likely to pass by other people as frequent chuckling, laughter stifling, or snorting out loud is highly likely. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. ‘Earworm’ is Dom Joly and a telephone at their nonsensical best.

Short and funny.

A great 15 minutes per episode. Like all comedy it's hit and miss but theres enough proper laughs and giggles per episode for my wife to want to know what I'm listening to, and now she is hooked too. Good work.

Inspirational. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Passed many dull hours at work listening to this. Dom Joly's ability to entertain is an inspiration.

not his best by far

I used to love the ol dom, but this seems really really pushed on strangeness to receivers that kinda understand that it's a weirdo on the other end, they ain't buying it, some bits made me laugh but its like dom is trying too hard for laughs,

at points it's very cringey , e.g. the mispronounced words, has that been lifted from another prank caller?! DVD.( quite a few points), sorry Dom but I ain't feeling this.. no big Catherine wheels being set off here..
