The best radio comedy in years
Easily the funniest thing I've heard on Radio in a long time, and much better than most sketch shows from tv.
The format is slightly disorienting at first (a transcript of a man browsing a slightly dystopian version of Wikipedia), but provides a brilliant focal point for the team to go to all manner of topics, back reference earlier jokes and maintain a strangely cohesive narrative.
Has a surreal style, with a dark underpinning to proceedings. Imagine Chris Morris via the Mighty Boosh.
