Comedy at AudioGO in December

11 Dec

The Goon Show Compendium 8Tis the season to be jolly and here at AudioGO we have lined up some comedy treats for you and your loved ones to enjoy over the festive season.

If classic comedy takes your fancy, our boxsets are perfect for collectors and newcomers alike. The 8th series of The Goon Show, remastered to the highest standards in The Goon Show Compendium 8  see Spike, Peter and Harry at their surreal and hilarious best. Accompanied by 2 information laden booklets detailing all the facts of the series, this is the perfect gift for fans of the show to treasure.

The Navy Lark: Collected Series 8 puts the crew of HMS Troutbridge back on board and causing yet more mischief. Lawrie Wyman’s much loved creation continues to delight listeners of both radio and audiobook and this series is no exception.

For the Radio 4 listener in your life, the pick of the year’s episodes feature on Just A Minute: The Best of 2012. Chair Nicholas Parsons oversees the 45th anniversary special episode – in which contestants tackle the subjects from the first ever episode – as well an episode recorded during the team’s trip to Mumbai, showcasing the growing worldwide appeal of the show.

From Just A Minute to ‘the antidote to panel games’, I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue: The Specials brings together some of the unique broadcasts from the show’s history into one box for the first time. Enjoy Christmas Clue, the Alice in Wonderland inspired ‘Humph in Wonderland’, learn more about  Mornington Crescent, and enjoy an anniversary celebration. Perfect fun throughout the long winter nights ahead.

If standup comedy is more to your tastes then we have plenty for you too. Sarah Millican’s Chatterbox Live sees one of Britain’s best female comics at the top of her craft, delighting the audience with her well-crafted observations and hilarious jokes.

Enjoying great success on BBC3, Russell Howard treats us to his unique stand up stylings in Dingledodies and Right Here Right Now, two sell out shows that deliver knockout laughs throughout.

Bafta winning comedian Lee Mack gives us rapid fire humour and sharp ad libs with Lee Mack: Live and Going Out Live, and where we would be without the pub landlord? Al Murray’s The Only Way Is Epic, from his 2012 tour, refills Britain’s empty pint glasses with his joyous bar-room buffoonery premium brew gags.

I’ll be back on the blog throughout the New Year to let you know what we have coming up. Until then, I hope your Christmas is full of laughs.
