5.0 out of 5 stars "Who Knew Hell Was Such a Funny Place" Jan. 24 2011
By A. R. Monahan - Published on Amazon.com
As my wife and step-daughter are Ex-Brits and I'm an unabashed Anglophile; I fell hopelessly enchanted with British Radio. Since I retired, I haunt the Old-Time-Radio web-sites for Brit Comedy programs. I purchased this series, piecemeal, before this box set was even available. If you enjoy listening to witty, satirical, literate comedy -- this is for you! We have listened to these programs so much -- we can tell you the next line in the script.

If you would like to sample an episode; go to 'YouTube' and Index 'Andy Hamilton'. You won't be disappointed.
5.0 out of 5 stars Wickedly brilliant, totally irreverent, brilliant characters and great satire. Andy Hamilton is a comedic genius. Dec 3 2013

A friend from England taped some of these episodes and sent them to me years ago, and I nearly died laughing. I was thrilled when the BBC finally made them available for purchase in the U.S. I immediately bought a copy for myself and two more for friends.

Andy Hamilton, who wrote and stars in all these episodes as Satan, is PERFECT for the role. His voice, accent, attitude and delivery are unique and side-splittingly funny. (You can sample clips on YouTube.) I and my best friend have listened to this entire set several times, and frequently have to pause the CD because we are laughing too hard or just want to hear that bit over again.

The characters make frequent references (nearly always very cutting) to various political and pop figures in the U.K. You do not need to know who the person referred to is (you often will) to appreciate the joke. If you do recognize the person, it is just that much funnier.

Series 1 and 2 are slightly less funny as the characters are working themselves into the roles. Then when they hit their stride, and Scumspawn becomes Satan's chief assistant, and later the scolding historian Edith enters Hell, they are off and running and hold on to your sides to prevent them from splitting.

My only complaint is that there are not more of these episodes.
5.0 out of 5 stars Andy Hamilton's take on Satan and the underworld is brilliant!!! Aug. 30 2011

I've been listening to this series on BBC Radio 4 since the beginning. I love their approach to Satan, and daily life in hell. It is a riot! We've recorded the series and play it on road trips.
