    Story
    "Sketch comedy to make you guffaw."

    John Finnemore's Souvenir Programme is majestic sketch comedy. Witty and amusing, intelligent and extremely funny, you can't help but laugh at the brilliant word play, effortlessly enhanced by pop culture and literary references, which just make these sketches sparkle. Comic gold. You will not regret listening to this for a second.

    Story
    "Insomnia song."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, and I have. I basically give it a blanket recommendation to everyone I know.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Roger Watiss, founding member of the silent majority.

    (Or the man with insomnia)

    (Or the chess royalty)

    (It is hard to choose, really)


    What about John Finnemore’s performance did you like?

    He is a genius. His voices--"normal, silly French, and TWO kinds of posh!"--are always engaging and well paced.The whole cast is really really good, they work together extremely well. Every scene showcases the well-tuned, well-played voice acting done by every member of the cast.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like quick witted comedy, with a special focus on the ridiculous nature of rhetorical flourishes, then this is the show for you. The ghost-stories-that-aren't-ghost-stories at the end of each episode may be some of the most well-crafted parodies I have ever encountered. It walks the line between the ridiculous and the absurdly clever, without losing balance or falling too far off track. The sketches are consistent AND consistently funny.

    Story
    "not as funny as cabin pressure, but good!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    yes, because john finnemore was very funny as usual, and very clever with the ideas and turning them into scripts. I would however say that cabin pressure (john finnemore's other main project) is even more funny and you sympathise with all of the characters much more, and the longer storyline gives more opportunities for jokes based on understanding of the characters.


    What did you like best about this story?

    it was original, different, and very enjoyable


    What about John Finnemore’s performance did you like?

    he knows how to deliver the lines just right, with the rest of the cast it is very funny, and as they can all do different voices and accents it prevents it from becoming dull


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

    I don't have many long blocks of time, so I couldn't listen to the whole thing in one go anyway. this doesn't matter though because the individual sketches are only about 3 minutes long each and so I could stop it whenever I needed, and come back. the jokes aren't repetitive though so it would have been just as good if I had done it in one go


    Any additional comments?

    if you know john finnemore from cabin pressure, then this is a good way to pass the time with the same sort of wit as he shows with martin, Douglas and Arthur. if however this is the first time you have come across JF then although this is funny, I would recommend cabin pressure for better value for money, as everyone likes it, and there is more wit and banter between the characters.
