A complete collection of this eclectic puntastic Radio 4 sketch comedy

Bringing together both The Wildebeest Years and Forty Nights in the Wildebeest, this fantastic collection showcases the brilliant, pop-culture-filled and one-liner-rich comedy of Nick Romero and Dan Freedman. From Incy Wincy Quincy, spider pathologist, and The Archers abroad (and in a new sci-fi format) to an amoebic Top Gear, Richard Coles as Robin Would, and a family of salad starring in Tossed in Space, the cabaret-style show features music from the house band, The Gents, and is full of wit, fun, and all the puns you could ever need.

In Forty Nights in the Wildebeest, Dan and Nick offer up a sheep version of Star Trek, an American Blackadder, and a very serious probing of the French Revolution, just in time to eavesdrop on some Radio 4 newsreaders after hours, before taking a quick visit to the Planet of the Grapes.

Dan Freedman has previously worked on The Now Show, The Minister of Chance, and the award-winning Stephen Fry webcast Death Comes to Time; Nick Romero has written and performed for The Now Show, I Think I've Got a Problem, and The Cornwell Estate. This fast-paced show is perfect for all comedy fans of Small Scenes, The Hudson and Pepperdine Show, and Galton and Simpson, and will leave you asking: what did Frankenstein have to do with the death of the dinosaurs?...
