Summary

A comedy sketch show featuring overblown, melodramatic scenes from modern life.

From ludicrous scenarios ranging from conspiracies behind cryptic crosswords, the perils of dating a banker, and someone accidentally being buried alive, this sketch show takes the normal and makes them ridiculous, all to a backdrop of music. 

Each episode features a number of these scenarios and along with a core cast of Daniel Rigby, Mike Wozniak, Cariad Lloyd, Henry Paker and Jessica Ransom. Small Scenes also features Sara Pascoe.

Monty Python for the Modern Age

One of the strangest audio experiences I have ever had. It's comedy consisting of very short sketches all enhanced with music and sound effects. It's very similar to Python in that respect because it relies on surrealist humour. I enjoy that kind of thing, though it's probably not for everyone.

Give it a go if you like comedy on acid - that's the best way of describing it.

Best audiobook of the year (so far!)

Funny, quirky, original and so well performed by the cast. I am really rather sad I have have come to the end of the audiobook.

Best comedy series on the radio, unique and I love

My assessment report and overview of the dimensions of this literary creation is as thus:

Amazing, if you have any comedy bones or stomachs, Yes, plural, then just listen to this beautifully crafted series. Well done to all of the team involved. much love and appreciation. I listened this during some very remote times, specific projects I was on, rather isolated, and I was able to immerse myself in them. Immerse I say, immerse.
