So Strange, So Lovely

Lyrical, bizarre, and goofy. The rotating cast of non-American stand-ups all blend with host, Alice, differently, and that’s a real strength. Frasier’s writing is eloquent, verbose, and deliciously post-modern, and a real joy to have.
It’s the break we need.

Nice to listen to

Thank god for the lack of politics! I love Alice and I love strange news, so this is a fun one for me.

Hilarious!

The first episode was so funny. For Americans, this show is easier to follow than The Bugle (which is also terrific) because Gargle doesn’t include the politics of Great Britain and other commonwealth countries. I can’t wait for the next episode. Congratulations to the Gargle team!!
