World of Pub: The Complete Series 1 and 2

A BBC Radio Full-Cast Comedy


Welcome to the world's worst pub!

Deep in London's East End, Garry and Barry run a pub, and they're not very good at it. Things usually go from bad to worse when their mate, Dodgy Phil, comes up with increasingly hair-brained ideas to reinvent the local - often with explosive results.

Could they make this the world's first environmentally friendly bar? Build the world's biggest pub named after the Titanic (but is it undrinkable)? What about booking Chas and Dave for the Queen's visit? Plus, there's the difficulty of running a pub next door to a zoo...

With music by Bill Bailey and starring Phil Cornwell, Peter Serafinowicz, Alistair McGowan and John Thomson, this hilarious full-cast comedy will have you laughing until last orders.
