Best of iTunes | British Podcast Awards Winner

Wooden Overcoats is a podcast sitcom about competing funeral directors on an overlooked channel island. It is a lavishly produced audio comedy in eight episodes from the UK with a host of established and rising names.

What's it like at a Wooden Overcoats Live show?

Only two episodes left in Season 2! (Three if you've pre-ordered the Christmas special.) And with that we only have two live shows left. We'll be reading episodes 7 and 8 on Monday 12 December, and then a special Christmas show with mince pies and carols on Monday 19th.

Tickets are going quickly, make sure you book ahead.

With listeners in over 2/3 of the planet, we appreciate that it isn't easy for everyone to get to London. So for those of you who can't, here are a couple of clips from our last live show where we read episodes 5 and 6.

Here's Felix Trench performing To Be An Undertaker from episode 5. Ciara Baxendale was detained for the evening and we're grateful to Abigail Jackson for stepping in as Georgie.

Funerals are only one of Piffling's thriving industries. Alison Skilbeck plays sweetshop owner and constable Agatha Doyle, as well as a host of other characters come live show night. Here she is flooring Tom Crowley.

Rudyard and Antigone Funn are twins born a week apart. But nobody can reduce an audience to tears quite like Beth Eyre.
