The Big Booth - The BBC Radio Comedy Collection
The only British comedian named after a Lincolnshire market town, Boothby Graffoe has won a cult following (and a Time Out Comedy Award) for his surreal stand-up routines and cerebral comic songs.
This collection contains his two critically acclaimed BBC Radio 4 comedy series, crammed with great gags, marvellous monologues, straw polls, sketches and ditties.
In The Big Booth, Boothby and guitarist Antonio Forcione are joined by special guests including Kevin Eldon, Richard Thompson, Robyn Hitchcock and Mariella Frostrup for 12 episodes of guitar-flavoured songs and observational comedy, including a special show recorded at the Edinburgh Festival. Prepare to climb into his soup time machine, stay the night in his haunted Scottish castle, meet a man with a replacement tongue, and hear scary tales of the railway and dramas at sea.
Boothby Graffoe In No Particular Order features more magnificent meanderings and comic improvisations from Boothby's convoluted brain. The odd and the even odder get an outing as he looks at some things about families that make him laugh, and hosts a not-to-be-missed version of the Round Britain Quiz. With him on stage are Stephen Frost and Antonio Forcione, and guests include Art Malik, Paul Zerdin and Debra Stephenson.

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
