Summary

All five series of the award-winning sketch show—plus standalone comedy Daydream Believer

Welcome to the inside-out world of Mitchell and Webb, a strange and surreal place populated by misfits, eccentrics, talking animals and a few stray Radio 4 arts programme presenters.

Included here are all five series of their fantastically skewed comedy show, packed with offbeat sketches and peculiar characters. Meet seedy snooker commentators Ted and Peter; poorly matched crime-fighting duo Angel Summoner and BMX Bandit; a cop who doesn't get results but, by God, he does things by the book; and some nervous Nazis who've just noticed their caps have skulls on them...

Find out what James Bond is really like as a party guest; thrill to The Surprising Adventures of Sir Digby Chicken-Caesar; and play the maths quiz that everyone is talking about, but no one understands - Numberwang! In addition, you can listen to the Alpine Archers on Radio Switzerland; join Raymond Terrific and his panel of boffins on Big Talk; and tune in to the exciting new reality show Make Me a Celebrity Centaur, featuring soap stars, cutting-edge surgery and some horses.

Absurd, imaginative, and very funny, this acclaimed series won a Sony Silver Award and led to the hugely successful TV series That Mitchell and Webb Look. It stars David Mitchell and Robert Webb, with Olivia Colman, James Bachman and Sarah Hadland.

Also included is the half-hour sci-fi comedy Daydream Believers, in which David Mitchell and Robert Webb star as tetchy novelist Ray and his gormless flatmate Colin and, in a parallel space adventure concocted by Ray, as Baron Amstrad and his retro-looking android Info. The supporting cast incudes Olivia Colman, Mark Benton, Simon Greenall and Mark Evans.

Fun

Entertaining and silly in a good way. Good background to play when you’re doing a task and want some giggles. I had it playing when food prepping and cleaning kitchen.

Classic M&W

These two at their best here. Wonderful collection that I had not previously heard. Olivia C is also fantastic. If you appreciate their kind of humour then this is well worth a credit

The "Mitchell and Webb Sound" complete series is nothing short of a brilliant and captivating masterpiece, showcasing the very best of this comedic duo.

From the moment I hit play, I was transported into the world of Robert Webb and David Mitchell, two stellar comedians known for their superb dialogue and wit. Their unique brand of humour, which meshes intellect and hilarity with an unparalleled ease, thoroughly enlivens the series, serving as its strong backbone.

There is a stunning variety of sketches in this collection, each characterized by magnificent writing, excellent performances, and flawless editing. It's worth mentioning that the humour often carries a depth that compels you to pause and ponder, adding a layer of richness to the listening experience rarely found elsewhere.

Webb and Mitchell's chemistry emanates through each sketch. Their dialogue delivery, timing, and ability to bounce off each other's energy are truly remarkable. It's this team's dynamic that makes listening to this series such an engaging experience.

The quality of the audio recording for this series on Audible is top-notch. The sound effects and background scores have been added thoughtfully, enhancing each sketch's impact without overpowering it. As a listener, you're able to immerse yourself fully in every joyous, laugh-out-loud moment.

In conclusion, whether you're a long-time fan of Mitchell and Webb or a newcomer looking for a good laugh, this complete series is a must-listen. It's a perfect blend of comedy that tickles your funny bone and insightful narratives that invite reflection. It had me hooked from beginning to end, making my Audible experience nothing short of spectacular. It's a testament to the genius of Mitchell and Webb and the lasting imprint they've made in the world of comedy. Undoubtedly, it was time brilliantly spent.

Great stuff

I have been a fan of these two et al since Peep Show. This did not let me down, a weekly listen for me. If you are familiar with That Mitchell and Webb Look on TV, then some of it will be familiar. But I loved hearing those again with the added benefit of plenty of previously unheard sketches.
