    all but Bryan Johson is my fav.

    The yucks, the rambling awesomeness, and Sunday Jeff!

    Yes, it is comparable to other performances by the narrator, actually it exceeds other performances.

    Story
    "Putting the "Class" back in the Classics"
    What made the experience of listening to Tell Em Steve Dave Fair-re-re Tale Theater the most enjoyable?

    Tell Em Steve Dave get to the heart of these simple tales. The dark, twisted slightly peculiar heart. Tales, that if they were to take place today, would either end up in front of the courts or as a high rating reality television show.
    Using equal parts common sense, absurdity, teamwork and bickering they manage to entertain, inform and slightly disturb the listener.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sunday Jeff, as played by Walter Flanagan...


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    Rumplestiltskin was a stand out. Often portrayed, inaccurately, as a scheming, disfigured goblin here he is reinvigorated. As a little hobo-esque wizard with mental issues. And a really bad haircut.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Fairytales are Grim no More


    Any additional comments?

    Stunning cover art, Perfectly performed and presented, exquisite effects and mastering with magical music.
    Also funny. Very very funny. Comedy Gold.

    Story
    "Just some guys having a gab fest"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    More thought put into the whole thing. The mikes not working just didn't "work". There is absolutely no thread to story. Disappointed.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Mystery


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of the narrators?

    can't say


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

    They seemed to be having a good time among themselves. That was somewhat infectious and made me smile several times.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't think this a workable premise for a line of audiobooks.

    "Foul mouthed at sophomoric"

    I bought this because it had a perfect score. I guess the authors/narrators have a good following, because for me it was like listening to Howard Stern. Plan to hear plenty of F#$# bombs and other swears.

    Maybe I just can't get the humor. but then again, I find nothing funny watching shows like South Park. Don't expect anything enlightening. I would view this a wasted credit.
