Publisher's Summary

Estate Agents, mail-order lingerie, and the invention of central heating: this is medieval England seen from a 21st-century comedy perspective. With an all-star cast, Pozzitive bring you a roisteringly funny new sitcom from the pen of Kim Fuller, who's CV is as long as a really long arm, and includes Spitting Image, Red Dwarf, Badly Dubbed Porn, Rory Bremner, Lenny Henry, and Spiceworld: The Movie, originally broadcast on Radio 4. Thrill! as brave knight Sir William De Warrenne comes back from the Crusades and tries to buy a castle with a combined dungeon/gym. Swoon! as young Lady Anne watches handyman Sam Tree grease a rusty hinge. Sympathize! as lord of the castle Sir John hires the latest top-of-the-range horse, but can't work out what to do with the built-in ashtrays. And Get Out Your Dictionary! as the medieval equivalent of Gordon Ramsey tries to prepare a banquet with a mandolin and some very old swear words....

Amazingly Fun

I don't normally go for an audio version of a program, but this caught my eye and I risked the credit. Well worth it! The story is a kick and the delivery of the ,lines leave you almost able to picture the physical moments taking place as this is performed. Now I will undoubtedly scour the world for the videos of this hilarious sketch comedy/ comedy-soap. Oh yeah, there are a few running gags!

Funny stuff

Any additional comments?

This radio show is a riot! It's a great mix of period and modern crude comedy. Very funny, but pretty dirty!
