Critic reviews

'Forget the cuddly TV persona, the Live Alan Davies is ruder and much funnier...If you like the TV Alan, you'll love the live Alan. And if you don't like the TV Alan, you'll ove the live Alan even more' Independent on Sunday

Rubbish. loads of bits cut out compared to the CD

poorly constructed audible recording. Most of the airline sketch missing. sections of the Tina turner sketch cut out. A real disappointment. bought the audible to replace my damaged CD. total waste of a credit

Disappointing editing

I love this show and, like another reviewer, bought it to replace my broken CD. There’s quite a bit missing, really disappointed.

Edited version!

It's not the full set. Sections have been (poorly) edited out. I am assuming this has been done to make it PG but I couldn't see any warning. It's still very funny but if you know the original the edits stand out jarringly and do impact on the enjoyment.

Excellent observational humour!

Really excellently delivered and improved as the podcast progressed. Loved Alan's animal point of view (particularly the cat story). Worth listening to.
