Publisher's Summary

It's anything but Grimm when the Tell 'Em Steve Dave crew gives their hilarious takes on some of the best and least known fairy tales.

Join Bryan Johnson, Brian Quinn and Walt Flanagan with special guest Sunday Jeff as they create a magical world of fantasy and wonder, trolls, living plants, and sinful dwarves. It doesn't get any better than this...or funnier.

Not for children but definitely for those who are a child at heart.

    "Expanding the idiom"

    Anybody can simply read words on a page and try to add character voices, but Tell 'Em Steve Dave went well past that providing insight and commentary into some classic fairy tales. You won't get just the "what" here, you'll get hilarious opinions on the "why".

    "Amazing stuff from the TESD boys"
    Where does Tell Em Steve Dave Fair-re-re Tale Theater rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Theres not many audiobooks that comment on their own character performances and stop to have conversations during the stories. That alone makes this unique. It's definitely one of the funniest


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Tell Em Steve Dave Fair-re-re Tale Theater?

    Sunday Jeff.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by the narrators?

    I've listened to hundreds of hours of podcasts by them so why not?


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

    Yep

    "Funny telling of old standby fairytales!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Tell Em Steve Dave Fair-re-re Tale Theater to be better than the print version?

    Since there is no print version, this is not applicable.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the way the conversations about explore the scenarios in the stories with an eye toward comparing the events to real life. This leads to big laughs.


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

    The narrators, or the TESD Players in this case, compare and contrast real life to life as lived under the rules of the world in which the stories take place. Lots of funny observations from the TESD crew.

    "Now with more cheese!"
    Would you listen to Tell Em Steve Dave Fair-re-re Tale Theater again? Why?

    With my grandchildren.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I imagined myself into the story, and quite frankly, I think I spoilt it. I'm obviously not to everyone's taste.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    They were a little blue, and liked to talk about bodily functions. They reminded me of my Nanna.


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

    Coming soon!


    Any additional comments?

    I will email them in when I think of something witty.

    "TESD: If you don't know, now you know!"

    All is right in the world when fairy tales become vulgar, and Sunday Jeff is contracted to be a voice talent. I'm sure a majority have no idea what I'm talking about. Buy the book, and find out.

    "TESD saved me"
    Would you listen to Tell Em Steve Dave Fair-re-re Tale Theater again? Why?

    Yes. Sunday Jeff.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sunday Jeff. Duh.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, I have listened to them all. This includes all bonus pods, overkill eps., and I even got in on a little booty time/glory hole now and then. This holds up to everything the boys have done, and this summer especially they seem to be topping themselves every week(except when Q storms out, or Bry calls in 'sick'. Just kidding Bry I love you!!). If you are a first time listener, this audio book really shows what these guys are all about. If you are a tried and true member of the TESDARMY you will love this just like you love everything else they shill. THEY DON'T EVER ASK THE AUDIENCE FOR ANYTHING JUST SHOW SOME DAMN LOVE!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed, I cried, Sunday Jeff voice nuzzled me softly, hay was made.

    "A solid, if a little unfocused, attempt"
    Where does Tell Em Steve Dave Fair-re-re Tale Theater rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Well, I'm not sure how I can compare this to Learning German: Volume 1 (the other half of my audiobook collection), but if I had to choose I would say that Tell Em Steve Dave was slightly more entertaining if a little more incomprehensible.


    Would you be willing to try another book from the authors? Why or why not?

    Hell yeah. It's Tell Em Steve Dave, and as long as the boys keep makin' em, I'll keep listening. Hopefully any further audiobooks will be a little more polished and coherent though.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Compared to their regular podcasts? I'd say this is above par for the course.Walt and Q put a lot of effort into these special outings, and it's noticeable. My only complaint would be that while on their ordinary podcasts going off-topic is fine, often even welcome, with set pieces like this I think a little more structure and preparation would go a long way.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Nothing moves me since the accident.


    Any additional comments?

    Nope.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Walt Flanagan


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

    Anything that featured Walt Flanagan's creepy voicing :)


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

    Yes, and then listened to again straight after


    Any additional comments?

    This is a TESD production. That's all you need to know, really. The guys examine some of the old fairy tales in depth, and give the usual TESD spin on those tales, and just make you smile for the duration of the book. This isn't a one listen and done book. You'll come back to this one again and again and again.

    More, please!

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it made me laugh start to end.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Walt really stole the show for me, he puts the best voices on and picks perfect timing to make comments.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    His chocolatey voice (shout out Bry - good luck for Talking Bad)


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me laugh a lot, and I was moved to tears when the Goat did that thing with the stop... or whatever that part was.


    Any additional comments?

    Download it, Listen to it, it's hysterical - I promise (also listen to Tell 'em Steve Dave)

    "Disappointed"

    I love the podcast and I've bought all the other bonus stuff they've ever done. The last Christmas one is fantastic. This is not. From the description it sounds like maybe they're going to read a fairy tail they've rewritten but that doesn't happen. They seem to just halfheartedly joke about fairy tales for ages then get defensive about what they've done. The only review you need is the last 10 minutes of the book. Spend your free credit on something you might actually enjoy.
