What to expect

David Mitchell and Robert Webb honed their skills writing for Big Train and The Armstrong and Miller Show before being given their own radio series to showcase their considerable comedy talents. That Mitchell and Webb Sound is a wonderfully witty composite of surreal sketches and bizarre characters that takes real life and turns it inside out. In Mitchell and Webb’s peculiar world, you can listen to the Alpine Archers on Radio Switzerland or Imagine That, where the panel tries to imagine the biggest baked potato possible. You could hear Rabbit Newsnight, or tune in to Jason from Daytime TV broadcasting live from Makeover City, where you can get a complete sock or handbag makeover. Discover which religion has got it right when it comes to getting a place in heaven, hear about the real lives of pit ponies and the children who staff a northern call centre, and find out about the dangerous world of ‘Hairdressers Sans Frontiers’. Or learn Practical Voodoo, where you can solve a range of everyday problems using a freshly-killed chicken. Including tips for dealing with a relationship breakup and a fresh look at twenty-first century marriage vows, Mitchell and Webb’s take on the world is brilliantly skewed with misfits, eccentrics and a few stray Radio 4 presenters…
