I just love everyone

Gonna struggle to not just write sonnets to Antigone Funn right now because while she’s amazing, this entire show deserves credit. You know the deal: rival funeral homes, narrator that’s a mouse, Eric Chapman having a mysterious past. One of our characters shares a name with a character on this show and we know they will never live up to their namesake, and that’s ok. Beth Eyre is giving the voice acting performance of our generation and my 68-year-old dad agrees--he sent me a text about Antigone Funn three days ago asking when the new season was coming out. This show is funny, this show has heart, this show is paced beautifully, you will love everyone on this show!

So so good!

I found this just before a road trip and listening through season 1 with my family was so much fun. The show is British comedy at its best. Witty, snappy banter, an absurd premise, and a wonderful daffy set of characters. Can’t wait to get into the other seasons.

A sitcom that could have been dark and is instead gleaming bright.

This show is truly amazing. You could not ask for better in a podcast or truly any comedy form. The craftsmandship, humour and character work is truly lovely and inspiring.
