i vaguely remember one about a bloke with various lodgers in his house some of them were foreign so obviously had comedy foreign accents which induced gales of laughter from the audience... think it was all voiced by the same bloke
god it was awful would be breastfeeding dd in the evening and listening to the news then this tripe would come on and I'd be trapped listening to it and gnashing my teeth
That grumpy writer one is interesting, because I don't particularly like it myself, but I can see that it is well-written and put-together. Whereas with Strong, as Cat says, I just cannot imagine why people find it funny.
What's the grumpy writer one? I have to admit I have smirked now and again at the newsagent's one, although it's not great. But News Quiz and Now Show are the only ones that have the ability to actually make me laugh, which I believe is the point of comedy...
yes agree CAS is truly dreadful. the programme with the lodgers and the "hilarious" foreign accents - was that about Mervyn Jones or somebody terribly unfunny, with every gag signposted from about a million miles away before it landed with a dull thud?
Yes the Josie Lawrence one was dire. What about the one with the woman who was asocial worker, or the one with the arms dealer. social worker one was mildly more amusing than arms dealer one which was shit. Can you tell that i spend the hours between 6 and 7.15 in the kitchen listening to r4?
I know the newsagent one you're on about, but can't remember its name. I thought it was rubbish from small snippets before turning it off, but on a long drive with nothing else to do, ended up listening to an entire episode and found myself laughing out loud (it was the one about the woman about to finish her build the titanic magazine thingy).
