Good-ish
9 April 2017 | by newsthSee all my reviews

Good, in that it is funny in parts and very funny in parts. But absolutely not funny in other parts.

Imagine a scale where there is Count Arthur Strong (CAS) at one end and Michael at the other. As we move from CAS on his own, through CAS with non-regular cast members to CAS with regular cast members to CAS with Michael to Michael with other cast members and finally to Michael on his own, we move from riotously, outrageously funny through mildly amusing to downright cringeworthy. The radio programmes are much, much, much, much, much, much (and I make no apologies for using the word "much" much there), much, much, much better.
