5.0 out of 5 stars really brilliant, 26 Feb 2006

Simply the best radio sketch show since the league of gentlemen. (little britain doesnt even compare) although it doesnt break massive amounts of new ground like the league of gentlemen (but then none since have) it is brilliant because it is just so funny, clever and witty. There are several reccuring sketch characters as well as individual sketches and a series of several in one episode.
The 'save the mad bears' campaign sketches in one episode and the reccuring sketches about the snooker commentators and the depressed late night radio dj are personal favourites oh and the posh waiter sketch. I listened to it when it was first on and i am so glad it is finally getting a release because it deserves it. If this is anything to go by (and the poilot gets made into a series) their tv show That Mitchell and Webb Look will be great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Modern Radio Comedy Sketch Show!, 26 April 2006
This review is from: That Mitchell and Webb Sound - Series 2 (Audio CD)
I back up the other couple of 5-star reviews here; these random sketches are fantastic, and especially amazing considering you're not watching them perform! The inner-thoughts of the snooker-commentators is fantastic; with the customised daytime-tv-trash programme a work of genius. The shows have just enough recurring sketch themes, but thankfully all shows are different in every way possible - this is definitely worth buying, and is just as funny as the first series of the radio show!

This review is from: That Mitchell and Webb Sound - Series 2 (Audio CD)
Mitchell and Webb have to be one of my favourite comedy partnerships of recent years. While poking fun at the seemingly mundane in life, the extraordinary things we all seem able to accept and occasionally going off on flights of hilarious fantasy, they're never afraid to give the inner geek free reign.

In this second series we are treated to the secret life of snooker commentators, a campaign to save the mad bears and a myriad of other quickfire, usually hilarious sketches.

Also starring Olivia Coleman and James Bachman in a bewildering array of characters, this is a well written sketch show, and while there is the odd dud most of the sketches hit rather than miss, and the short quickfire nature means there are plenty of laughs in each episode.

All six episodes are collected here, on 3 cds in a double jewel case. There is a very brief inlay with a few biograhical details. Series 2 of the Mitchell and Webb look repeats a large proportion of the sketches, but there is enough material unique to radio or TV to make it worth owning both.

5 Stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this and literally cry with laughter., 4 Jan 2006

I made a point of listening to this when it was aired on Radio 4, because I was a fan of Peep Show, in which David Mitchell and Robert Webb also star (along with Pam Bachelor who also appears here). Inevitably I only caught a couple of episodes, but I wasn't disappointed by what I heard!
It was some of the most painfully funny dialogue ever to be heard on Radio 4, with ranting 'Daily Mail Reader' style diatribes inflating to ever more ludicrous proportions, as Mark and Robert tried to outdo each other in hilarious mock bigotry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yep., 25 Oct 2006

This review is from: That Mitchell and Webb Sound - Series 2 (Audio CD)
I can only agree with what's been said already. Although the comment about Little Britain being below average in its Radio incarnation, which is preposterous as it was miles better and far better suited to radio than the original League of Gentlemen was, everything else is completely true. David Mitchell is one of the funniest men alive. He is full of wit and smug charm that you can't help but laugh at what he says. He has a wonderful talent of being able to say things in a deadpan way with a very expressive tone. Robert Webb, in fact, has the opposite quality - he can have the most expressive pieces with a monotonous tone that frightens you as you're not sure what he really thinks. He's probably Dudley Moore to David Mitchell's Peter Cook - Robert is the actor and easily the more creative performer, while David knocks you for six with his one-liners and off-the-cuff remarks. Neither of them give an inch, though, refusing to be outdone by the other, and the result is brilliant. Good luck to them in all they do. Peep Show is brilliant as well.
