Not a Piffling Pidcast at all
I found this podcast and I thought to myself “comedy in a undertakers, yeah right”. I’ve just listened to the first season and I love it.
Bonkers characters, bonkers locale and bonkers storylines. Brilliant.
Listen to this if you live the absurd.
Ah it is very good.
I listened to this podcast over the summer. By the end I felt that the name Rudyard would really suit me. That's all I have to say.
If you don't like stifling laughter in public, this isn't for you. A perfect mix of British sitcom humour, with a mix of Basil Fawlty level of mishaps with the madness of Bottom and something else that is unique to this podcast alone.
