This is my go-to (and free!) listen after I've made it through monthly listen I love the mix - especially how it blends big names with people I've never heard of. Thanks Audible!

There's oodles of these episodes on Audible - and what's great is that it gives me a window into how americans (and I guess canadians) feel about everyday stuff - regardless of politics - just ... stuff worth ranting about.

But it's Lewis who gets to narrate them. A master, and a gentleman, he is. A very smart loud gentleman.

I’ve followed Punchlines since it was in Audible Channels and its really expanded my comedy smarts. Sometimes show is full of famous people and sometimes an equally funny mix with names I never knew.

This one is about comics to keep an ear on- Stay till the end - Preacher Lawson from LA is sure to be a star.

Mike has teamed up with director Eric Martin to adapt the novelization into a fully immersive cinematic audio experience, and an epic all-star cast has come together to introduce Stinker to a whole new generation of fans! It's Smokey and the Bandit meets Every Which Way But Loose meets Smokey and the Bandit Parts 2 and 3. Feel the thrill as Stinker teams up with old pals Boner and Jumbo, plus new friends Buck and Rascal the Chimp, for a crazy ride across the highways and byways of Bicentennial America.

It’s somewhere between the best school play EVER and fine European cinema. What made Lincoln in the Bardo fail makes this one work: an ensemble cast who genuinely sounds like they had a fine time performing this.
