If you could sum up That Mitchell and Webb Sound in three words, what would they be?
Reviving Dead Format
Who was your favorite character and why?
I refuse to pick a favorite between Robert or David. They both bring equal brilliance to the duo....okay Robert. No wait David. Bloody hell. I hate this question. Olivia Colman. There. That's an easy answer.
What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldnjQuery18309383272203285411_1501107165317?t experience if you just read the book?
Nothing. This was a radio program. In fact if it were a book, I couldn't hear it at all. Unless you stuck an mp3 player in it like one of those books where you hide a gun.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Yes, it was the snooker bit, but mostly because the train door opened and it was my stop.
Any additional comments?
Seriously poor questions for this program. This is a brilliant sketch show that was done via the radio in Britain. If you like Mitchell and Webb via any of there other shows, you'll love this. If you don't like M&W then you need a doctor. If you don't know who they are, then give a listen. They are quite a funny pair.

half of these bits have been done on tv, but they still made me laugh
I liked what I saw of Peep Show and the current sketch show but this is a must if you are a fan. Like 'Dead Ringers' their sketch humour really works as audio only (the art of making mirth from the mundane can sometimes be lost on TV).
There were more than a few moments on public transport when I must have looked like I was going into an involuntary spasm as I tried to hold back an explosive laugh. Especially the 'touching cloth' sketch which has to go down as a classic comedy moments.
Series 2 is already downloaded ready to go; although I may have to avoid listening whilst travelling so I don't get accosted by transport police.

The partnership is so good. Skit to skit, they're silly, dark, clever and a bit twisted at times. I laughed a lot...

Mitchell and Webb present a series of amusing and thought-provoking sketches making light of some everyday and some not-so-everyday situations. The only really downside to this book is the lack of value if you spend a credit on it. The length is only 2 hours 45 minutes, which is a very high $/minute cost compared to other titles available. Perhaps Audible could have combined all the series together for 1 credit? However it's still worth getting if you really enjoy David Mitchell's humour.
