5.0 out of 5 stars A Hidden Classic, 15 Jun. 2005
This review is from: It's Just Not Cricket (Vol 1 & 2) (Audio CD)
Let me say this from the start - I hate Cricket! However, I, like most people, know who Richie Benaud is (mainly due to the impersonation abilities of Rory Bremner in his earlier days!).
I would never have even considered buying this, until one day, I heard the opening part when a friend was playing it in his car. Beleive me, it hits you right between the eyes! From the very start I was in stitches! I was straight onto Amazon when I got home, and ordered this CD set.
From the outset, this is hilarious. Hearing the commentators pronouncing the names of the players is classic comedy. All of the characters are extremely funny, and you can almost picture them. The fact that I don't know who most of them were did not detract from the fun - in fact, it probably enhanced it - I'm pretty sure these characters would be more entertaining than the real thing!
Be warned though, it is fairly adult, with lots of swearing. Some may even think it's a tiny bit politically incorrect, but I think it's pretty unnoffensive. I think it will live on as a classic piece of comedy.
That said, has it made me want to watch the cricket from now on? Not a chance!
