My favourite things in life are the beach, books and biking. With Audible I can have books at the beach and while biking.
I found these radio shows to be entertaining and amusing. They are about 40 minutes long each, so you can listen to one at a time (great for a commute), or just listen to them all at once.
Clever, well written situation comedy. A good escape.

Love, love, love this series! I downloaded this because I'm a Cumberbatch Fan, and he is great in this, but David Allam often steals the show, with his dry, sarcastic retorts. The four main cast members play perfectly off of each other!
Now to listen to the next series!
This is intelligent humor. It's not based on insults, violence or sex, but rather wits.
See, this is hard... I like all of them. This group is brilliant performers, and they fit so well together!
I'm sorry, but I never have listened to anything else with them.
Apart from Anthony Head, but he's simply a guest star.
These radioplays bring me to laughter from start to finish!
You really need to listen to these.
A buffoon, a Matriach, a know-it-all and a wannabee all collide in this fabulous BBC Radio series. Some of the best moments come from the verbal sparring between a pre-Sherlock Benedict Cumberbatch, as Martin, and Roger Allam's character Douglas (a Jedi of sarcasm). You will inadvertently laugh out loud in public so be warned.
I don't doubt you will be hooked when you listen to season one. On the up side you have three more season and a Christmas special to listen to so fill your boots.

I will and I have! Each episode is thoroughly entertaining and well written. I love the character development. Plus their adventures never get old.
Too many to pick just one. I think i liked the Burling Day episode the best in this series, though. :)
I listen to audiobooks while I drive, so this was an okay time filler. However, that's all it was - filler. There were a few times over the course of the nearly 3-hours that I chuckled, but it was mostly rather bland. Nothing went particularly badly, but nothing made me *want* to keep listening, either. I was quite ready for it to finish.
I would note its existence to my hard-core Benedict Cumberbatch friends, but because it was so blah, wouldn't actively recommend it even to them.
Stephanie Cole and Roger Allam were over-the-top, which could be amusing.
Season 1 inspired me to not buy any further episodes/seasons of Cabin Pressure.
I've spent my entire life around the written word - writing it, editing it, teaching it. So, it's no wonder I also love to read it!
Listening to Cabin Pressure while driving, I found myself laughing so hard that I'm sure people driving near me thought I had gone mad. Well, I had...I went mad with laughter at this well-written, well-acted and hilarious show that spoofs private airline travel. I'm working my way through the whole series and hope this troupe continues to record new episodes forever. Yes, it's that entertaining!
