Now see here!

This is an utterly brilliant show. It’s ludicrous, improbable, and ridiculous in all the best ways. If you like dry humor with a razor sharp sense of timing, then this podcast is for you. I was sold when someone said “if you like Fawlty Towers, then you will love this podcast.” It’s a spot-on description. Five stars aren’t enough.

Maybe the funniest show I listen to

This is bizarre British comedy at its best. A main character who by all rights should be completely unlikeable and yet happens to be charming in a sort of pitiful way, the dry humor, the lovely accents (from an American's perspective),my favorite narrator in a podcast ever, and the absolute madcap shenanigans are the reasons to start listening to the show.

Despite all the silliness, the show brings a suprising depth as well. I didn't think such a funny show could also bring me to tears, but it did. I love this show, and it's one of the few that I feel I can recommend to just about anyone.

So much fun

Pulled me in and I just keep wanting more. I don’t want to finish as I always want to have another episode available.
Creative writing, great vocal performances and wonderful wit.
