Made me laugh on more then one occasion but wouldn't particularly recommend it due to it sometimes annoyingly cutting sets short and the occasional comic i didn't enjoy cropping up every so often, not enough from the might boosh in my opinion, if you fancy a bit of stand up though you cant go far wrong here.

The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists
- By: Robert Tressell
- Narrated by: Tony Robinson
- Length: 5 hrs and 11 mins
Tressell's novel is about survival on the underside of the Edwardian Twilight, about exploitative employment when the only safety nets are charity, workhouse, and grave. Following the fortunes of a group of painters and decorators and their families, and the attempts to rouse their political will by the Socialist visionary Frank Owen, the audiobook is both a highly entertaining story and a passionate appeal for a fairer way of life.
Fascinating - What a shame it's abridged.

An excellent book
Magnificently read and well paced, this audio book is a real eye opener to anyone seeking to learn of socialist motives and ideals, i can only echo that an abridged version of a book is always a shame, but i didn't feel it detracted from it too much, i highly recommend this.
