Very interesting and entertaining stories.

Story telling, bedtime stories by comedians. The stories are engaging and worth listening to more than once.

Please do more!

Love everything about it. Perfect way to end a day. It’s captivating but also helps turn my brain off so I can fall asleep.

Waste of money

This is a huge waste of money. Not funny really at all and I have a twisted sense of humor.

This is rad, I mean really sick and sarcastic

This stuff will leave you dumbstruck and saying: "Just what am I listening to?!". I would not say that it is for the cynics because it has such a dark sense of sarcasm that it corners horror.

But in the end you will have some good laughs and you will also want to hear the next episode. Nick Offerman is brilliant as always and so are the readers of the stories. So if you are in for some sarcastic, rad, juicy stuff and foul language doesn't bother you too much then I do certainly recommend it.

Ugh! Thought these would be clever

Why do humorists believe that anything can be made clever without good writing, but with the inclusion of f#%k gratuitously? Funny and smart parodies have been done before and wildly better. These would be for boys 15-20, if they had read the fairy tales. Free was too much to pay for a waste of my time.
