Possibly the funniest series ever!
John Cleese, Connie Booth, Prunella Scales et al.
Cleese wrote the first 6 shows with Booth (his then wife......who, by the by, is American.) The series was so popular that BBC begged for 6 more episodes. Cleese and Booth (now divorced) got together and brought us 6 more gems of comic genius.
The Major, Manuel ( who narrates the series's in letters to his Mom ), Chef......they are all here! To my surprise I found that I enjoyed the audio version more than the televised show.
If you are serious about funny, you will get the whole series post haste!
I already have these. You lucky Audible Listeners!

It's difficult to find good, clean humor these days...but this is a rare exception! I have listened to all three volumes and this one is my favorite. Too, too funny! Enjoy with a nice cuppa...

An absolute classic, British comedy at its best. Obviously a lot of the visual slapstick comedy is lost, but I have seen the episodes so many times that I feel like I am watching them in my head anyway. An absolute must have for any fawlty towers fan or anybody that like to laugh aloud. And haveing John Cleese do a little introduction to each episode is a nice touch, gives you a bit of history and background.

I love Fawlty Towers and enjoyed listening to this. But there are an awful lot of visual jokes, and while Manuel's commentary helps, I think it's better if you have seen the TV programme as well.
