I love it but do you have to be British?

This is a collection from the BBC radio show. It features the actors doing comedy sketches where they impersonate the voices of famous people. It love it. Both the impersonations and the comedy are of a very high standard. Like "The News Quiz" it's appointment listening for me.

My only concern would be how well it travels across the atlantic. Quite a few of the characters are well known in the UK, but maybe not to a wider audience ("The Archers" for example, or Brian Sewell, or Tom Baker's Dr Who or Greg Dyke).

You could see if it is currently being broadcast on the BBC website, which will give you an idea of how good it is, and hopefully encourage you to get this.

Radio sketches.

As an Australian, some of the characters are unfamiliar to me, but The Doctor's phone calls are hilarious!
