Bestselling author Mike Sacks (And Here's the Kicker, Poking a Dead Frog) has just discovered the original novelization of the long-lost classic movie, Stinker Lets Loose!
Mike has teamed up with director Eric Martin to adapt the novelization into a fully immersive cinematic audio experience, and an epic all-star cast has come together to introduce Stinker to a whole new generation of fans! It's Smokey and the Bandit meets Every Which Way But Loose meets Smokey and the Bandit Parts 2 and 3. Feel the thrill as Stinker teams up with old pals Boner and Jumbo, plus new friends Buck and Rascal the Chimp, for a crazy ride across the highways and byways of Bicentennial America and meets scores of beautiful Southern gals, reams of treacherous villains, and even the Big Man!
Will Stinker truly Let Loose? Or will Big Government and the Smokeys bring him down?
A loving send-up of a bygone era of trucker films and their beer-swillin', skirt-chasin', verb-shortenin' heroes, this audio adventure is a joyride in absurdity; with its rapid-fire jokes only matched by their total outrageousness. But enough of this jaw-jackin'. If you don't listen, then the joke's on you!
Now with a special bonus chapter! Enjoy a live performance of highlights from the audiobook, performed by a full cast of actors and musicians at SF Sketchfest. Tune into Chapter 50 for the full live show!

Live performance at end is worth it!
This is in two parts: the recorded performance for Audible and a 90-minute live performance by most of the original cast.
The story is absurd, especially at the end. You’ll be amused and horrified by the way the characters speak, but the story is not great. In fact the low-brow humor and overly campy and possibly predictable devices are a little trite.
However, the fun part is the live performance in the last chapter, which was an add-on update after I purchased the original version (Thank you Audible folks for the update). This performance is excerpts from the story and not a retelling of the whole story. Totally worth it.
Jon Hamm, Andy Richter, and Paul Tompkins read their parts on stage in front of a live audience, but unfortunately Rhea Seehorn was not available. The character originally played by Philip Baker Hall, also not available, was replaced by someone doing the character in a spot-on impression of Christopher Walken. Always made the audience laugh.
Not great, but great fun. Recommend.

A parody of the film ‘Smokey and the Bandit’
An enhanced multi-voice audiobook; with sound effects + music. Starring Jon Hamm (Mad Men), Rhea Seehorn (Better Call Saul), plus others.
It’s a parody of Burt Reynolds film Smokey and the Bandit.
Very entertaining and utterly absurd, though as it pokes fun and ultimately mocks this kind of 1970s film you really need to have previously watched Smokey to understand the humour.
