    "TESD Being TESD"

    OK. If you don't listen to TESD on a regular basis I have two things to say: First, why? Second, buckle up.

    Incredibly hilarious retelling of a number of fairy tales. Walt, Bry, and Q (can't forget Sunday Jeff) are all in rare form. I couldn't breathe I was laughing so hard.

    That being said, if you aren't familiar with these guys, you may be in for a rude awakening. They are incredibly inappropriate and foul mouthed, which I love. But may not be everyone's cup of tea.

    Great job boys.

    "Sunday Jeff is God amongst men."
    Where does Tell Em Steve Dave Fair-re-re Tale Theater rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    After listening to this I wanted nothing more than to forget I'd ever 'been' with any other audiobook. I'll forever regret and lament that I hadn't stayed pure and let TESD Fair-re-re tale theater take my audiobook virginity.


    What other book might you compare Tell Em Steve Dave Fair-re-re Tale Theater to and why?

    Compare it to another book? You're kidding, right? Why not compare the sun to a match? The finest French wine to fetid Florida swamp water? What a ponderous request you make!


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    Bry, Walt, Q, and Sunday Jeff....are Seraphim. Their voices are second only to God's own.


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

    I challenge anyone to employ an alternate solution. The credits alone are superior to the content in total of every other audiobook ever published.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm starting a Kickstarter project to fund the resculpting of Mount Rushmore in the images of Bry, Walt, Q, & Sunday Jeff. Have four men ever held such sway over the collective attitude and mindset of an entire nation? I think not.
    These men are extraordinary.
    These men are unique.
    These men transcend the divine.

    Just kidding. They're lil ol ants just like the rest of us.

    "Tell em Steve-Dave does it again!"
    Where does Tell Em Steve Dave Fair-re-re Tale Theater rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was the most enjoyable and entertaining podcast I have listened to so far.


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

    Every moment was gold covered with diamonds and urinated on by the queen herself!


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

    The Performances were better than watching Shakespeare in the the park. However, my opinion may be heavily influenced by the fact that I did not have to experience this audio book in a park which in my town are filled to the brim with homeless junkies drinking hairspray.


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

    I was afraid that if I stopped the world would stop spinning. Was my fear irrational? probably. But I'll never know for sure, because I refused to find out.


    Any additional comments?

    Anything TESD does is Golden. This is no exception. It was an enjoyable laugh-a-doo, which is Canadian for "It was an enjoyable laugh-a-doo"

    "The greatest money grab I've ever heard."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Tell Em Steve Dave Fair-re-re Tale Theater to be better than the print version?

    Hearing the voices of the Tell Em Steve Dave boys, with the addition of Sunday Jeff makes it ten times better.


    What other book might you compare Tell Em Steve Dave Fair-re-re Tale Theater to and why?

    It is in a league of its own.


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

    The nuance of their character and enthusiasm for the stories.


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

    Laugh, lots of laughs


    Any additional comments?

    Keep bringing more, and I'll buy it. Horror would be great, maybe a reading on Greek or Roman myths. Pick and I'll jump at it.

    This audiobook is an extension of the awesome podcast Tell'Em Steve-Dave. That podcast is the only podcast I subscribe to and have from the beginning. Walt always comes through. You won't be disappointed in this audiobook.

    "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.

    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!
