An awesomely great comedy show that managed to bamboozle Radio 4 listeners on its first broadcast by seeming so real that we all ignored it. Whitehouse & Higson have pulled out all the stops and it's so much funnier than anything else they have ever done. A great suporting cast make this a bit of a gem. I've recorded the whole second series & listen to it often on the iPod - it really repays repeated listens and I recommend any lovers of the Fast Show / Partridge / Jerky Boys / Fonejacker etc to get it.

This collection of episodes from the firsst series of Down The Line is improvised comedy at its very best. Like the previous reviewer I suggest that you listen to it several times as there are so many little gems that you can miss on the first listen. The Down The Line team (Charlie Higson, Paul Whitehouse, Simon Day, Harry Enfield, Amelia Bullmore, Felix Dexter etc etc) are already well established figures on the British comedy scene but, by using the medium of radio, have found a new way to shine through their hilarious use of language and their vocal talents. If anyone has, like me, a genuine fondness for BBC Radio 5 Live but sometimes gets exasperated by some of the idiots that ring in (or even broadcast as guest presenters!) then you will love Down The Line. The team have managed to parody the Great British phone-in to a tee and I just can't wait until the second series is released.

Down the Line is just too funny. Every episode is hilarious, i recommened this to anyone who likes The Fast Show or Harry Enfield. Not the best idea to listen to it alone on the bus as you get funny looks when laughing aloud to yourself haha.

If you've ever spent a few weeks, months, years listening to either LBC 97.3 or Talksport Radio this series will strike a cord with you. Where a series will normally lampoon the host, Down The Line not only does that - it lampoons the audience.

Most people that ring into phone in shows are extreme right or left wing, religious nuts or just plain crazy. Sure, we've all listened to a phone in show but when you pick up the phone and dial that number - you cross a sanity line! This is where the Down The Line audience come into effect - a set of characters who would be just as easily placed on The Fast Show (Higson, Day and Whitehouse's TV masterpiece). The host Gary Bellamy bumbles his way through a parade of nitwits and social outcasts. Sterling performances by Higson, Day, Whitehouse and Felix Dexter really capture the tone of modern telephone phone in's.
