Summary

How far would you go to get your dream job?

In The Temp, Warren (Marek Larwood) is sent to a variety of temp jobs by his recruitment officer Aimee (Vicki Pepperdine) on the promise that if he does a good job, it might become permanent. And each time, the job turns out to be more dangerous and ludicrous than advertised. Open-minded to the point of mindless, Warren never seems to notice that the job is very different to the job description - he just wants to do a good job, and get made permanent.

This series is really funny 😁

Pleasantly surprised by this audio book, it was funny in a really cleaver way, listened to it with my teenager & he really enjoyed it too ... I hope there’s a series 2 coming soon. Well done Steve Nelson & the rest of the performers 👍🏼👍🏼

Great writing

Really enjoyed these shows, just as good as many paid comedy series I've bought. Would really like to see this continued.

Hilariously well written.

Very funny & very unique storylines.

This could easily be imagined as a prequel of "Karl Pilkington" before the TV series.

Fantastic short stories to listen to in the car and gym and want a laugh.

Excellent!

I absolutely love this show & am hoping for a second series. The writing is excellent & the performance & characterisations make this such an enjoyable listen when you have half an hour to kill. The different escapades Warren the temp finds himself in are ridiculous, yet draw you in & end up believable to his character. His friend & employer at the temp agency, Amy, is always available to lend a helping hand & they make a fantastic & unstoppable pair! Please make more!

Very entertaining. Very well written and worth coming back to now and again. A sign of a well written comedy.
