Publisher's Summary

More sketches from the inside-out world of David Mitchell and Robert Webb, including what James Bond is really like as a party guest, and the rather too exciting world of Rabbit Newsnight. Their distinctive and lopsided view of the world includes the worst possible name for a dry cleaning shop; the brave and dangerous work of Hairdressers Sans Frontiers; and the tragic consequences when a stray piece of ham goes unchecked. Mitchell and Webb's gallery of peculiar characters is populated by misfits, eccentrics, the occasional talking animal, and a few stray Radio 4 arts programme presenters. Starring David Mitchell and Robert Webb, with Olivia Colman and James Bachman.

Very amusing.

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

If you could sum up That Mitchell and Webb Sound in three words, what would they be?

Reviving Dead Format

Who was your favorite character and why?

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.

What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldnjQuery18309383272203285411_1501107165317?t experience if you just read the book?

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.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes, it was the snooker bit, but mostly because the train door opened and it was my stop.

Any additional comments?

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.

Love these guys

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely, I already have.

Who was your favorite character and why?

That's a really hard choice, I thought the pit pony was funny, I liked the early morning alcoholic, they're all so funny.

What does uncredited bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Uncredited is Mitchell and Webb and they did wonderfully.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

You couldn't make a film of this, too many characters.

Any additional comments?

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.

Touching Cloth

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.

Very funny..

The partnership is so good. Skit to skit, they're silly, dark, clever and a bit twisted at times. I laughed a lot...

A lot of this stuff was recycled later for the Mitchell and Webb Look, but it's still funny. The first instalment wasn't brilliant but the others had me chuckling.

Entertaining surprise

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...

Fine, but just watch the show

No sketch comes out of the transition from video to audio unscathed. Sometimes funny, but even then it's hard to not feel like it's missing a vital part of the sketch.

I've always loved Mitchell and Webb, whether on the radio or TV they are one of the funniest duos around. Brilliant!
