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!

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.

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.

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!

waste of a credit

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.

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!

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.

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.

Not impressed

Lots of gibberish, not impressed at all. Had a hard time listening to the book, gave it a good faith effort, tried till chapter 9 and gave up.

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.

Disappointing

Just stupid nonsense, don't waste your money. Monty Python meets Black Adder but sadly badly written so even with top actors it's rubbish!

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

So funny. Kate does not disappoint.

Funny with some recurring gags and great guest performances alongside Kate, Emily, and the wonderful Tim Gunn!
Made my commute to work a lot more entertaining.

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.
