Product Description

Book Description

David Mitchell and Robert Webb star in the complete fourth series of their Sony Award-winning comedy show – as heard on BBC Radio 4.

About the Author

David Mitchell has been writing and performing comedy since his schooldays, when he and his friends would pen pages of sketches, though never put on a show. He studied History at Peterhouse, Cambridge; joined Footlights and soon became President of the society. It was there that he met Robert Webb. After graduation, Mitchell and Webb staged a number of two-man shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival before becoming freelance writers, contributing to comedy shows such as The Armstrong and Miller Show and Big Train. They acquired a growing following after writing and starring in Bruiser and That Mitchell and Webb Situation, and in 2003 they got their own BBC Radio 4 series, That Mitchell and Webb Sound. The second series was broadcast in 2005, and the show transferred to television as That Mitchell and Webb Look the following year. The duo also starred in the award-winning Channel 4 series Peep Show and the acclaimed BBC Two comedy Ambassadors, as well as appearing in The Bleak Old Shop of Stuff. In 2007, they starred in the film Magicians, and in 2009 they published This Mitchell and Webb Book. David's solo projects include guesting on panel games such as Have I Got News for You, Mock the Week and QI; co-presenting 10 O'Clock Live and writing an autobiography, Back Story (2012), and a collection of journalism, Thinking About It Only Makes It Worse (2014).

Robert Webb grew up in Lincolnshire and studied English at Robinson College, Cambridge. He met David Mitchell when they both became members of Footlights, and from then on they collaborated in a number of comedy shows. Their first appearance as a duo was on Comedy Nation. They then wrote and appeared in their own show, That Mitchell and Webb Situation for satellite channel Play UK, before starring in two series of That Mitchell and Webb Sound on BBC Radio 4, four series of the BAFTA-winning That Mitchell and Webb Look on BBC Two, and nine series of the Golden Rose award-winner Peep Show. Robert's individual projects include starring in the 2006 film Confetti; winning Let's Dance for Comic Relief in 2009; playing Dan in the Channel 4 series Fresh Meat and acting as team captain on the BBC panel show Argumental.

The fact that Mitchell and Webb, have been so successful in 2 major tv series and to a lesser extent their film, Magicians, means that this bright comedy duo are finally running the risk of spreading themselves a little thin on this fourth series of their popular radio show. This, in turn, leaves a slight sense of over-familiarity with certain elements and themes within the duo's comedic structures and characterisation. So well-worn themes of history, office politics, and sci-fi make their expected appearance in a generally well written and consistantly amusing series of comedy sketches [ if not quite as funny as the finest moments of Peep Show].

That said, this fourth series of The Mitchell and Webb Sound has many worthwhile moments, and some of the sketches are clever if a little self knowing in places [ i particularly enjoyed the Stargate, and the old lady job justification hearings series of sketches].

Mitchell and Webb are still very much in their comedy comfort zone,but appear to be effectively avoiding the fall from grace that some of their main contemporaries, namely Lucas and Walliams, seem to be experiencing at the moment. Hopefully there is still a lot more to come from this talented pair in the future, and that the very best gags are left for the brilliant Peep Show.

Ok, before I start I'll warn you -- this is a dry and dusty critique! Sometimes, it's a useful thing.
This fourth radio series from Mitchell & Webb finds our heroes well and truly ensconced in the public's comic consciousness. Between Webb's film appearances, Mitchell's game panel supremo status, the radio and television versions of their sketch shows and oh, let's not forget that show they do on Channel 4 -- you know the one I mean -- they're second only to John Barrowman, perhaps, in the broadcasting ubiquity stakes. But isn't it said that familiarity breeds contempt?
Well, I'm pleased to say that Mitchell & Webb's fourth radio series is every bit as funny as the preceding three. Which is to say that five out of seven sketches hits the funny bone. But I don't mean that as a direct criticism -- it's the nature of sketch-based comedy shows to be a mixed bag, and the trick of it is simply to maintain a higher ratio of hits than misses and keep things varied and speedy: the chaps fulfil this consistently.
There are many stand-out sketches in this run, many of which have been touched on by other reviewers, with the recurring sketches in particular having a cumulative brilliance, especially when the series is listened to in one or two sittings: the Stargate sketches and the Old Ladies Job Interviews are worth mentioning here.
In fact, many of their comedy ideas are based on a simple, Blackadderish principle: take something extraordinary and place it within the mundane, or vice versa. I mention this because you will notice A LOT of this across the series.

Format: Audio CD Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Before they were all pervasive on the television, Mitchell and Webb had a highly successful radio show, which is still running. The Mitchell and Webb sound contains the same style of humour as the Mitchell and Web Look, but as it is on the radio there is more opportunity for situations that would be harder to realise on the screen, and for your imagination to really work.

Each episode os a collection of sketches, with several running gags, such as the Stargate and the old lady hearings, mixed in with lots of hilarious one off sketches. The style of humour is a great cross between observational humour and whacky goon show style situations. They excel at taking slightly absurd real life situations and taking them one step further towards the ridiculous with great laughs as the result. The writers are clearly very erudite, and this leads to a more intelligent style, that I thoroughly enjoy.

Presented here is all six episodes from the fourth series, broadcast August/Sept 2009 on Radio 4. There are 3 discs, 2 episodes per disc, collected into a double jewel case. There is a sparse inlay with brief biographies of Mitchell and Webb and chapter points for each episode.

A great CD, this should be in the collection of all lovers of witty Cambridge style humour.

Now, I expect to be ridiculed for this but here goes: Mitchell and Webb should be put in the same bracket as Morecambe and Wise and The Two Ronnies. There, I've said it. Better justify my argument then. Mitchell and Webb have slogged through the horrible days of starting off on early digital tv, bbc 2 and finally being promoted to BBc1. However the radio series is where they have worked through their ideas and this is the series that was broadcast earlier this year on radio 4 in the 6:30 comedy slot. Whilst series 4 does slightly sound that they are now flying into the mainstream - Mitchell on every panel show going and Webb doing um...... something ( the film confetti was awful however) it is however still containing nuggets of comedy gold. Series 2 is probably the best of that mitchell and Webb sound but you won't go far wrong with this christmas present (3 hours of comedy instead of listening to your relatives arguing about getting the wrong size batteries for christmas gifts.
