It's not easy being Satan. Thrown out of heaven by a vengeful, white-haired God merely for daring to voice the concerns of middle management and condemned for all eternity to listen to Edith Piaf and Elvis Presley.
Still, there are new arrivals to welcome: the Professor, an atheist whose unerring optimism is a nasty blow; and Thomas, chairman of a privatised water company (so vile that Judas Iscariot starts calling him the Guv'nor). Satan has to deal with a rebellion of his own from head demon Gary: he wants staff feedback sessions, more flexible rostering, and wider access to nuns and virgins. And with human depravity on the increase Hell's getting ever more crowded: time for a new assistant. Will Scumspawn get the job?
A fiery furnace of brilliant one-liners and biting satire, Old Harry's Game is the insider's guide to Hell. (Bet you didn't know God's real name was Nigel.)

Yes, depends on your humour but this is good old clean funny. I highly recommend getting a few seasons and if you like the first few episodes .. if you like them get all the series as with the exception of season 7 they are all excellent, season 7 good just not quite the same and a little more repetition .
"British humour at its best"
Old harry's game will have you laughing out loud. It is clevely written,and stylishly produced.
Living as an expat family we missed the series when it was aired on the radio, and I came across this title by chance when browsing through the comedy selection on audible.
I have three teenagers who are fans of Red Dwarf, Frasier, Blackadder,and humour in that ilk and they were delighted by this series.
It appeals to all ages, and like all good comedy it functions on several levels. Each episode is a delight.
