The complete series 1 and 2 of the smart and surreal sketch comedy from Tom Basden, Stefan Golaszewski, Tim Key and Lloyd Woolf.
In this complete collection of BBC Radio 4 series of Cowards, a batch of hapless and hopeful nearly-men battle with the challenge of everyday life, doing their very best to meet the demands of the modern world.
Bikes start talking, genies appear that force you to guess what your three wishes are, bridges across the channel are built out of Lego, Parky loses it and a young man tries to audition for Barbara Windsor’s part in EastEnders.
There are also new creatures made from splicing a cow with an apple, social experiments into squatting while on the pull, wedding proposals in PC World, a sightseeing tour around Guantanamo Bay and a Garden of Eden where it rains chocolate and cows sing. Wry, left-field observations and detailed characterisation make this, their BBC Radio 4 series, a joyous and memorable sketch show experience.
"Re-inventing the tired art of sketch comedy...these four are brilliant." (Observer)

Funny in parts
I’m a big fan of Tom Basden. His series Party is hilarious. This one is a sketch show which is very funny in parts and bizarre in others. You have to listen to it more than once and it gets funnier each time as you understand the way he thinks. This one is like Marmite. Love it or hate it. Me I love Marmite!!

overall I really enjoyed this audiobook. It's a bit hit and miss occasionally but it's undeniably funny with good performances.
