unsparing!

funny! I was surprised how very pointed the satire was against the government and celebrities.

Evil Genius

Some people are meant for greatness. Others are meant to listen to audiobooks. Go and buy the audiobook Morris.

Very entertaining!

Witty, bite -sized comedy wondrfully performed. Characters slightly dated now but that doesn't detract from the enjoyment at all. Recommended!

Corny fun

I'd missed this on the radio, and it was an impulse purchase that I quite enjoyed, but I think it has dated a bit and with less stellar a cast it might not have kept me listening right through. Great fun in parts, and great performances.
