Did anyone else listen to this. I liked it, especially Isy Suttie's song with its controversal lyrics. I think they overworked the "ugly word" idea though.

I missed it but we did hear them rehearsing some of it at the post-RFTP workshop and it was very funny, especially a sketch about someone taking what the king says too literally.

Yes, I enjoyed it too, particularly the mermaid sketch and the monologue about the man who had his face inverted because he didn't like looking at himself in the mirror but liked photos of himself. Some of the sketches were a tad weak, though, and needed better punchlines, they seemed to fizzle.

Agree about the song, and the "ugly word" running gag didn't work for me either.
