RATING
This is a shinning example of what audio drama can be. It's extremely well acted and tightly written.
This is the quintessential British comedy drama in the podcasting space, as far as I'm concerned! The characters are rich, the dialogue is snappy and often bone-dry, and the production elements are polished to a fine sheen. The vocal performances walk the tight-rope of being fun and exaggerated without crossing into unbelievably. If you're on the fence about Wooden Overcoats, jump off and give it a try!
This is the only show to date that's made me laugh so hard I've cried, then turn around and make me actually cry in a single episode... Twice. Wooden Overcoats is a phenomenally produced and written show that juggles hilarity and nonsense with a grounded story and ever-progressing plot. Riveting, one might say...
Witty, funny, a British sitcom with charm, laughs and a whole lot of dead bodies.
Darkly funny, with great characters. Best narrator.
Brilliant writing, wonderful characterizations. I have never felt more for a mouse in any dramatic production. These people understand what goes into a quality podcast! Lively writing, energetic performances. I will follow them to the end!
Simply the best podcast. So hard to find anything to follow it
A delightfully quirky, sometimes sweet story with wonderful character development and situations. And spot on production! Highly recommended.
Very funny and hilarious British comedy podcast. The script is well written and acted, it has often caused me to laugh out loud while out walking. Highly recommended
I have spent countless hours listening to this podcast. It’s genius. One of the best discoveries I’ve ever made and I can’t wait to see them live on the 30th!
Classic British sit com at it's very best. Formidable writing and acting and gallows humor for the morbidly amused. Excellent funeral parlour comedy!
Absolutely FANTASTIC! This podcast is so entertaining! I love all the characters. The voice acting is EXCELLENT!
Really well done!
First season is excellent, season two was good, season three jumped the shark. Characters are now totally flanderised :-(
A British comedy about a quirky small town, its inhabitants, and the one-sided rivalry between the Funns and the newcomer Eric Chapman. It took me an episode or two to settle into the world of Piffling but once I adjusted this became one of my favorite podcasts. The morbid and often absurd humor regularly had me in stitches.
Utterly gorgeous. I love this show, its characters, its heart. I arrived late to Wooden Overcoats, but finishing the final episode of series 4 was an emotional time. I’m already dreaming of the reunion/revival episodes in a decade’s time 🤞🏻But until then… enjoy yourselves!
it's about siblings. it's about grief. it's about mob psychology. it's about seminal 1960s allegorical science fiction show The Prisoner. it's about shenanigans. it's about pornography. it's about book history. it's about local politics. it's so so so wonderful.
A British sitcom with snappy dialogue and morbid and absurd humor that follows two standoffish twins who have to find a way to keep their funeral business afloat when a charming competitor arrives in the village. Themes include grief, community, and the importance of interpersonal connections. The structure is episodic and character rather than plot-driven, mostly told through dialogue with interspersed narration. The performances are funny and energetic, with endearing main characters who each get a season to spotlight them (Antigone's development especially being a highlight as she becomes more confident), as well as colorful side characters who flesh out the town. There's quite a bit of secondhand embarrassment, but also heartwarming moments.
Comedy 101Be British and have your characters fail again and again and again.
This podcast has made me laugh till I cried at work. My co-workers think I am insane. Listen responsibly, but whatever you do, listen.
