My Audiobooks


This is a complete list of audiobooks that I own, including CDs that I’ve created digital copies of, downloads from Audible, and audio converted from DVDs. Books are unabridged titles unless otherwise indicated. And if you have any suggestions for audiobooks you think I should check out, let me know!

I’ve also written an Audiobooks Overview and a post about RNIB Overdrive in the past, while a few titles below have links to blog posts where I’ve reviewed or mentioned them.

Comedy – Live Performances

For most of the live comedy titles in my DVDs & Blu-rays, I’ve purchased audio versions where possible, or extracted the audio from the video, because they still generally work that way. It’s only visual gags that get lost, but there usually aren’t many of those, and I already know what they are having seen the DVDs already. The main exception so far is Harry Hill, whose shows are heavily visual, so I haven’t made audiobooks of those.

Comedy – Compilation

I’ve also put together an audiobook album of some spoken word comedy tracks that I’ve acquired from compilation albums or online, to keep them all together (musical comedy tracks are in my music collection).

  • Billy Connolly:
    • The Casual Vomit

    • Hidden Track
  • Jasper Carrott:

    • One Leg Too Few
  • Smith & Jones:
    • Bob Geldof
    • Richard Branson
  • Stephen Fry:
    • Harry Potterotica. A really clever edit that someone did of Fry’s audiobook narration, that I found on Youtube. Wrong on many levels, but hilarious.
