    I like stand-up comedy, sans profanity. Gaffigan tells it well in this audiobook. I won't spoil it by spilling the beans, so you'll just have to listen to it yourself.

  • Beyond the Pale

    First comedy title I've listened to. It was great. Gaffigan makes everyday life seem pretty funny. His humor doesn't require you to listen to every four letter word in the book.

  • "If you give a Narcissist a Microphone"

    3 of 3 helpful votes
    What disappointed you about Scandalous?

    I was expecting something more clever or interesting. It wasn't particularly funny, and recounted stories about English Celebrities I've never heard of and had to look up on Wikipedia to get the context. Even then, it wasn't really funny.


    What could Russell Brand have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Not made it. Maybe write down some material and self-edit.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Performance isn't going to save something that has no content.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It was short?


    Any additional comments?

    Don't waste your time.

    The record-breaking, chart-topping comedy phenomenon returns for a fifth season - all four episodes are here as a single download. Ricky Gervais, of course, is the award-winning co-creator and star of The Office (upon which the current NBC hit series is based) and HBO's Extras. Steve Merchant, who also stars in Extras, is his long-time creative partner. Karl is a pile of protoplasm that mimics the functions of a human being.

Around the table, Ricky Gervais, Steve Merchant and the glabrous luminary Karl Pilkington. In this episode, MEDICINE, we explore the treatment of human ailments through history - from trepanation (or 'oles in the 'ed) in early tribal societies right through to the possible, if improbable, future of medical technology.

    Berlin, Summer 2011. Adolf Hitler wakes up on a patch of open ground, alive and well. Things have changed – no Eva Braun, no Nazi party, no war. Hitler barely recognises his beloved Fatherland, filled with immigrants and run by a woman. People certainly recognise him, albeit as a flawless impersonator who refuses to break character. The unthinkable, the inevitable happens, and the ranting Hitler goes viral, becomes a YouTube star, gets his own T.V. show, and people begin to listen.
