Publisher's Summary

How far would you go to get your dream job?

In The Temp, Warren (Marek Larwood) is sent to a variety of temp jobs by his recruitment officer Aimee (Vicki Pepperdine) on the promise that if he does a good job, it might become permanent. And each time, the job turns out to be more dangerous and ludicrous than advertised. Open-minded to the point of mindless, Warren never seems to notice that the job is very different to the job description - he just wants to do a good job, and get made permanent.

Avoid this

I was hoping for some funny stories about actual temping experiences but that's not what this is. The attempts at humor are painful. I started two episodes but the plots were absurd and stupid. I couldn't force myself to continue.

Reminiscent of old radio plays

I really enjoyed this! It was very funny to listen to! It reminded me of those radio plays of the past where you could imagine all of the action happening. Very enjoyable! I hope other episodes are made.
