Summary

Andy Hamilton and Jay Tarses' script for Revolting People, about the American War of Independence, winningly mixes the "boom boom" school of jokes, literary silliness (jeopardy means "like a jeopard"), and anachronisms that make deft political points. Hamilton and Tarses, who has written for the Muppets and the Bob Newhart Show, appear alongside Jan Ravens ( Deadringers) and James Fleet in this unmissable series, with appearances from Hugh Dennis and Michael Fenton Stevens ( TWOS).

Love all 4 series on radio.

Why can you only get the first two series? Suppose I'll have to wait

Genius Part 2 of 2

Sheer genius! I loved every second. Andy Hamilton always delivers.

ONLY TWO SERIES!

It may only be under three hours, but the quality is 100% satisfaction.

I wanted to like it

I'm so disappointed by this, it's got a great cast and yet somehow it falls flat. It has a few funny lines scattered about but it's not worth waiting for them. Poor.

Hilarious

Very funny w/ some awesome tongue in cheek and innuendo based humor... As good as the 1st series and am hoping for a release of season 3 as I dearly want to laugh along w/ the adventures and hijinks of these lovable misfits...
