That Mitchell and Webb Sound: Series 1 | [David Mitchell, Robert Webb]

That Mitchell and Webb Sound: Series 1

    "I love this duo"
    If you could sum up That Mitchell and Webb Sound in three words, what would they be?

    Reviving Dead Format


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I refuse to pick a favorite between Robert or David. They both bring equal brilliance to the duo....okay Robert. No wait David. Bloody hell. I hate this question. Olivia Colman. There. That's an easy answer.


    What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    Nothing. This was a radio program. In fact if it were a book, I couldn't hear it at all. Unless you stuck an mp3 player in it like one of those books where you hide a gun.


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

    Yes, it was the snooker bit, but mostly because the train door opened and it was my stop.


    Any additional comments?

    Seriously poor questions for this program. This is a brilliant sketch show that was done via the radio in Britain. If you like Mitchell and Webb via any of there other shows, you'll love this. If you don't like M&W then you need a doctor. If you don't know who they are, then give a listen. They are quite a funny pair.

    "Touching Cloth"

    I liked what I saw of Peep Show and the current sketch show but this is a must if you are a fan. Like 'Dead Ringers' their sketch humour really works as audio only (the art of making mirth from the mundane can sometimes be lost on TV).

    There were more than a few moments on public transport when I must have looked like I was going into an involuntary spasm as I tried to hold back an explosive laugh. Especially the 'touching cloth' sketch which has to go down as a classic comedy moments.

    Series 2 is already downloaded ready to go; although I may have to avoid listening whilst travelling so I don't get accosted by transport police.

    "Entertaining surprise"

    I've only seen little bits of the duo, and was a bit hesitant to buy this. However, I enjoyed it so much, I'll be getting series 2 very soon. I'm not only impressed by the fresh subject matter of their comedy but also the time given to supporting cast members. Mitchell and Webb are very funny but it's nice to hear other voices join in too.
    The Shaggy/Scooby Doo sketch had me spluttering out loud with laughter...

    "Amusing"

    I listened to this in short bursts to cheer me up on a long train journey. Some of it is really witty.My teenage son has listened to it over and over.
