So very special in every special way...

If you could sum up John Finnemore's Souvenir Programme: The Complete Series 1 in three words, what would they be?

Marmite-flavored toothpaste

What did you like best about this story?

It is basically a consistently funny sketch show. If ever there were an elusive creation, that would be it: consistently funny sketch comedy. Almost every skit is right on target, hilarious, well-acted, and well-paced.

What does John Finnemore bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

His voice has the ability to make me instantly want to smile. It is reflexive at this point. The sound of his voice is irreversibly linked in my mind to happiness and laughter.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

YES! However, I love to simply relisten to favorite pieces as well--I can't refrain from sharing them with just about anybody I can get to listen (anyone who has needed a car ride from me in the last eight months is now very familiar with John Finnemore's comedy shows, both souvenir programme and cabin pressure)

Any additional comments?

Listen to it! It will be one of the best choices you could possibly make for your time.

Modern sketch comedy at its finest

John Finnemore is a brilliant comedian, creator and performer of the acclaimed Cabin Pressure series, and John Finnemore's Souvenir Programme is a wonderful mix of sketches, which range from the witty to the silly, and are always endearing. Fuelled by literature, pop culture and quirkiness, this is British comedy at its best. This will make you laugh until you ache, so go ahead, treat yourself.
