SouthPark meets The Office at Medieval Times!

You can tell the All-Star cast had a blast creating this one! In between embarrassing laugh out loud moments (elliptical neighbors at the gym were ready to commit me!) and relishing the fresh, irreverent, and witty script, you start to realize that the storyline is a satire on modern work culture — and then you can’t stop listening! Hysterical and an easy, fast listen, Heads Will Roll makes for a fun and relaxing break in the day.

Probably has at least something for everyone

It’s kind of all over the place. There are surely some funny moments to suit different tastes, the songs are entertaining, and the celebrity narrators are fun.

But there are lots of volume issues. It quickly goes from too loud to barely audible in quite a few places. I think I like the idea of the production better than its execution. Kate McKinnon and Tim Gunn did a really good job, but some of the other characters are quite grating. So I enjoyed parts of it, and was disappointed in others. But I think most people who are fans of Kate McKinnon will enjoy at least some of this production, so maybe give it a try if you’re willing to go along on a bumpy ride.

More like this please

It's like an old school radio drama for a 2019 comedy audience. Great concept. The writing is funny and the story captivating. My first experience of Emily Lynne. Does she sing professionally? She should. I'd buy that album. Can we get more celebrities doing this sort of thing? Always a delight to get new Kate and Aidy content. Cheers!

Not my thing, but it might be yours!

This audiobook is an excellent reminder that humor is subjective.

I'd like to start out by saying that there's a lot to like about this book. The voice acting is largely well done, some of the jokes are genuinely funny, and a couple of characters are so well written that they shine in every scene they're in. That said though, I found the rest of this book pretty painful to get through - I'm not a huge fan of awkward, cringey humor and this book is, for the most part, full of awkward cringey humor. I was able to make it through about 75% of the audiobook before I finally threw in the towel and requested my credit to be refunded.

If you're the sort of person that's a fan of this style of humor, I think you'll absolutely love this book - save your hard earned money/credits otherwise.

Um...I guess my expectations were too high

Always love Mc Kinnon. Every other time. Listen to this book just to hear all the voices. Don't bother with story or plot or the bards. It's a show. They got together and said "Let's put on a show!" And they did. And I bought it. And now I'm done.

I demand that Audible instantiate a sixth star

I knew going in that this thing would be awesome. Some comedic actors have a direct link to my funny bone: Kate McKinnon is the living embodiment of my funny bone.

But this is far from being a one woman show. Emily Lynne took me to that wow place, especially with the singing: Ah, the singing.

Clever and witty, and brought to life in vivid colours through the talented voice work of an amazing cast, and the overall audio production is superb.

Seriously Audible, I need 6 stars.

I loved it enough to write my first review!

The first few minutes is kind of a shock, because it’s like nothing you’ve heard before, but don’t let that turn you off, keep listening!

It’s different, definitely, but that’s what makes it so fantastic. I wouldn’t expect anything different from the mind of Kate McKinnon (and it must be a family trait because The co-creator Emily Lynne is fantastic!) Heads will roll intertwines historic tyranny with our modern version. I can’t wait for more!

love Kate McKinnon, but her talents can't save this hot mess. story is insipid and uninteresting. I kept waiting for it to get good... 3 hours of my life I will never get back.

What a waste of talent.

I could barely get past the second episode. Great actors, juvenile script. Very disappointing. Sad to think this is being put forward as high budget (assuming based on A-list performers) comedy.

Fantastic!

I wasn’t sure how this would go over because so much of comedy is the non-verbal; facial expressions, body language, etc. that in this format, you obviously can’t see. This was amazing! Kate and Emily are incredibly talented, as was the whole cast. It was laugh out loud funny the whole time. Definitely would love more of this type of comedy from this fantastic duo!

All stars for these all stars

This show is absolutely hilarious! It combines the SNL-style humor we know from Kate McKinnon with an all-star cast of actors to create this joyous radio play! The pleasant switches from famour stars like tim Gunn and Meryl Streep to the friends & SNL co-stars like Aidy Bryant and Alex Moffat bring the story to life even more, and Emily Lynne SHINES and manages to keep up with her sister with ease, proving herself a star in her own right. The songs are a joy as well, and I’m hoping they’ll be released on Spotify at some point in the near future.

Love Kate McKinnon, big fan, and so to hear her with her sister in this was epic, great story, really funny, great message, and the work you can tell they put it into it was well worth it, they work really well with each other, hope there's going to be another one

Great Laugh when feeling Low

Downloaded this on a whim, so glad that I did. It's done in episodes with humourous adverts in between.
I ended up wishing that it went on a little longer

Don't get this at all!

I have given up after just two chapters. I don't understand the humour, and there doesn't seem to be a plot. Or characters. Just rude stuff for the sake of it. Disappointed.

Spat my coffee out laughing. RIP coffee.

Bizzare. Engaging. Hilarious. The comedic timing delivered by Kate Mckinnon is spot on. The writing is great, story bizzare and hilarious, the Queen makes me laugh every scene.

It's ok

Look, I love Kate McKinnon as much as the next lesbian. But this just fell so flat on me.

I give one star because I managed to finish it, one because I laughed out loud once or twice, and one solely because Esther Perel's in it and she is an incredible pool of wisdom that I can not get enough of.

If you do not like the preview, like me, don't listen to it. It stays exactly the same all the way throughout and does not get any cleverer along the way.
