Summary

Michael Hordern stars as Jeeves with Richard Briers as Bertie in a BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation. Mayhem has broken out at Brinkley Court and there would seem to be a desperate need for Jeeves. But Bertie is fed up with the assumption that he is merely an addendum to his personal attendant. There are more brains in the Wooster household than just Jeeves, you know! Stand back, Bertram Wooster is on the case.

Briers' performance brings Bertie Wooster to life.

Excellent reading brings out all the Wodehouse humour and one wants to listen to it all over again straightaway.Richard Briers is exceptional.

Wonderful voices in very special dramatisations.

Would you listen to Right Ho, Jeeves (Dramatised) again? Why?

I have, many times! It brings a smile to my face every time.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Right Ho, Jeeves (Dramatised)?

Bertie imagining he can solve everyone's problems without Jeeves.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Laugh a lot each time.

Any additional comments?

These BBC dramatisations were gems; I don't think anyone has come close to the sheer joy of Richard Briers speaking the words of Wodehouse.

Master craftsmen at work - PGW, Briers and Hordern

This dramatisation is excellent and really brings the story to life. Briers is the best Bertie there is. Splendid.

Simply Spiffing!

A rollercoaster of rollicking fun! Michael Hordern and Richard Briers are perfectly cast as Jeeves and Bertie in this wonderful dramatisation. It's hard to beat and thoroughly, one hundred percent, recommended!

You can't do better than this!

If you could sum up Right Ho, Jeeves (Dramatised) in three words, what would they be?

Hilarious, brilliant, silly

What was one of the most memorable moments of Right Ho, Jeeves (Dramatised)?

I loved all of it from beginning to end.

What does Michael Hordern and Richard Briers bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Everything! These two completely make Jeeves and Wooster. If ever a man was born to play the hapless, hilarious Bertie, it's Richard Briers – this is a masterclass in comic acting and verbal dexterity. He is genuinely hilarious. And if ever a man was born to play the witheringly acerbic Jeeves, it's Michael Hordern. They make this what it is – brilliantly funny. I really hope they had as much fun working together as it sounds like they did...

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I just laughed, again and again, out loud, and very few books ever do that to me. The combination of Wodehouse's fantastically anarchic writing coupled with Briers' and Hordern's superb performances pretty much guarantee that you can't fail to find this brilliantly silly and side splittingly funny.

Any additional comments?

Wodehouse's writing was really ahead of its time in its joyous silliness and its anarchic use of language – there's something a bit Goons-y about it – just the character names have me in fits. It still feels fresh and a bit bonkers in 2018. And did I mention that Briers and Hordern are brilliant? I may have.. once or twice.

More fun from Bertie and his amazing manservant.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this to a friend as long as they like a bit of slapstick fun.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Right Ho, Jeeves (Dramatised)?

Berties panic concerning Aunt Dahlia.She always tells him just what she thinks of him!

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Aunt Dahlia asking Bertie to give the prizes at the school.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

Brilliant Performance

This is my most favorite performance of Wodehouse’s lovable characters. Richard Briers interprets Bertie with a great vocal range, showing his skill as a stage actor. I love the Bertie that Hugh Laurie (Dr. House, if you can picture him) created for television along with Stephen Fry. It is difficult to ascertain whether Richard Briers inspired Hugh Laurie, or the reverse happened. If you watched the series in the 80's, listening to this recording will bring echoes of Hugh's interpretation as young, humorous, innocent and insouciant (is that the word I want?) Bertie. Michael Hordern is a miracle of word economy and has at his disposal a great array of vocal contrasts. As a stately Jeeves, he gives height to such a phrase as, "Indeed, Sir?" with great efficiency, innuendo, double-entendre and a wink, that, on hearing him saying this, you all but see Jeeves raise his left eyebrow a fraction of an inch. Miriam Margolis bristles with energy and humor as Aunt Dahlia. The cast knows very well their characters and inhabits them with great skill. The direction of this performance is excellent. It never slows down. If you want the best or your wits (Imagination and Fantasy) tickled, by all means, proceed with this recording, you will not be disappointed.

Very enjoyable dramatization

Very enjoyable dramatization with excellent actors. Fast paced, funny and excellently delivered.
Probably the best PG Wodehouse radio play available.

A classic Wodehouse story

Who was your favorite character and why?

I'm a fan of the Jeeves books mostly for Bertie Wooster, and he is wonderful as always here.

What about Michael Hordern and Richard Briers ’s performance did you like?

Although this is the one Wodehouse novel where I think Hugh Laurie (in the TV show) does a better "Bertie Wooster" than Richard Briers (in this audiobook), Briers remains my favourite Wooster overall and is very, very good here. The rest of the cast is very good here: the actresses playing Madeline Bassett and Aunt Dahlia nail their characters perfectly, and the entire cast does a brilliant job of bringing Wodehouse's novel to life.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It's very long! But it's only a couple of hours, and is pretty fast-paced. If I hadn't heard this story before, I might have been tempted.

Hilarious...

For a lover of modern romance and stuff....I found this surprisingly refreshing. This level of humor broaden my horizons and I found myself buying more of P.G. Wodehouse work. Right Ho...indeed. 🤣
