Publisher's Summary

David Mitchell and Robert Webb tackle various subject matters in a 'How to Cope with...', a guide talking you through every day scenarios and situations. The subject matters discussed are How to Cope with... Being Normal; Pubs; Being Dumped, Parts 1 and 2; Coffee; Malmaison Hotels; Nudists; The Smoking Ban; Actors; Servants; and Getting Older. This recording doesn't need to remind us just how great Mitchell and Webb are as a comedy duo, and will by no means need to even attempt at getting the listener's attention once the play button is pressed, but will simply show us once more everything we know and love about Mitchell and Webb and why their quirky hilarity and foibles work so well together.
For example: How to cope with Actors. Try "not be put off by their luvvie-ness" and "do not assume that all actors are all thick...Stephen Fry is an actor and also a world class boffin. David Mitchell's GCSE results are very impressive."

Dazzlingly Funny!

Another first-rate outting for comedy team Mitchell and Webb! I have yet to be disappointed by the material from this duo. David Mitchell's diatribe on Malmaison hotels had me laughing out loud on the subway. Be sure to try this one, as well as anything else--audio or video--from M&W. You will have an hour's worth of laughs from "How to Cope..." Enjoy!

Hillarious!

That was a great laugh, especially the chapters on coffee and being dumped. One or two jokes don't translate too well if you're not English (I didn't really get the Mal Maison hotel bit) but overall it's great.
If you liked this check out That Mitchell and Webb sound.

Disappointed

I normally like these guys but this audio felt like something they wrote on a napkin one lunchtime. Too short and not too funny

Fantastic! Shame it's so short ..

What made the experience of listening to How to Cope with Mitchell and Webb the most enjoyable?

The fact they're reading it. A chapter each (not together) but it's still brilliant to hear.

What did you like best about this story?

The highlights of the book, good material well delivered

Have you listened to any of David Mitchell and Robert Webb ’s other performances? How does this one compare?

This is shorter than their other audio stories at just over an hour. And it is just them recording a chapter each (never together).

It doesn't compare to anything else; this is just them being funny. If you like Mitchell and Webb, you'll love it ... if you don't why are you reading the reviews? Move on.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Laugh. Definitely.

Any additional comments?

Shame we can't have the whole book unabridged in audio (although given the description of the "missing" picture perhaps it's with good reason!).

Utterly brilliant

...but I’m only saying this because I think in doing so I will appear as some sort of pansy intellectual giant, or an intellectual pansy giant, who thinks he can fobbulate witty comments in some vague delusional sense that I am one of the authors, which I’m not.

And I’m not John Cleese either, or Elton John thinking that I am in any way thinking I am like John Lennon or Paul Macartney or anywhere in their league.

In fact I am Christopher the nobody, and nobody cares, so fuck off then!
