Publisher's Summary

More sketches from the inside-out world of David Mitchell and Robert Webb, including what James Bond is really like as a party guest, and the rather too exciting world of Rabbit Newsnight. Their distinctive and lopsided view of the world includes the worst possible name for a dry cleaning shop; the brave and dangerous work of Hairdressers Sans Frontiers; and the tragic consequences when a stray piece of ham goes unchecked. Mitchell and Webb's gallery of peculiar characters is populated by misfits, eccentrics, the occasional talking animal, and a few stray Radio 4 arts programme presenters. Starring David Mitchell and Robert Webb, with Olivia Colman and James Bachman.

I love this duo

If you could sum up That Mitchell and Webb Sound in three words, what would they be?

Reviving Dead Format

Who was your favorite character and why?

I refuse to pick a favorite between Robert or David. They both bring equal brilliance to the duo....okay Robert. No wait David. Bloody hell. I hate this question. Olivia Colman. There. That's an easy answer.

What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldnjQuery18309383272203285411_1501107165317?t experience if you just read the book?

Nothing. This was a radio program. In fact if it were a book, I couldn't hear it at all. Unless you stuck an mp3 player in it like one of those books where you hide a gun.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes, it was the snooker bit, but mostly because the train door opened and it was my stop.

Any additional comments?

Seriously poor questions for this program. This is a brilliant sketch show that was done via the radio in Britain. If you like Mitchell and Webb via any of there other shows, you'll love this. If you don't like M&W then you need a doctor. If you don't know who they are, then give a listen. They are quite a funny pair.

Love these guys

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely, I already have.

Who was your favorite character and why?

That's a really hard choice, I thought the pit pony was funny, I liked the early morning alcoholic, they're all so funny.

What does uncredited bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Uncredited is Mitchell and Webb and they did wonderfully.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

You couldn't make a film of this, too many characters.

Any additional comments?

I've liked these guys for years, they're so funny, I listen to them at work and I'm often asked if I'm ok because I'm stifling laughter.

Brilliant


Sharp comedy from some of the sharpest comedians around. This more than met my expectations. Maybe one bad sketch in the whole batch
