Get ready for a completely improvised and unscripted Audible Original that invites you to listen in on the funniest phone calls from the world’s weirdest town.
“Welcome to South Grampers! Please enjoy our world-famous movie theater butter, and kindly stay away from the glowing toxic waste.”
Ever been on a terrible conference call where nothing gets solved?
Stuck on hold trying to cancel your cable service?
Lonely and needed to talk to a friend? (Even if they’re a cat?)
Bad Reception is an entirely improvised comedy, set entirely on the phone. A cast of over 40 top comedians and improvisers brings to life (and completely makes up) the story of South Grampers, Northern California – the Movie Theater Butter Capital of the World.
The town is in dire straits and must launch their own film festival to raise some desperately needed cash. But an unexpected sequence of events ultimately leads to an event known as…The Incident.
Only one person can solve the mystery and expose the terrible truth. He just doesn’t know it yet.

absurdity, hilarity and improv
A finely crafted improv tale that develops organically, give it at least until episode 4 before making your decision.
Some amazing voice actors and creatives come together to create an amazingly hilarious ride, I'm on my 5th listen.
Big thanks to everyone who made this happen.

This was fun BUT
I enjoyed this but whoever decided to upload it in a random order needs a kick in the pants. I just listened to in turn order episode 5 no where near the end and I got the credits roll which hasn't happened in any other episode. Its just really confusing.
