Rudyard Funn runs a funeral home on the island of Piffling. It used to be the only one. It isn't anymore.

Rudyard Funn and his equally miserable sister Antigone run their family’s failing funeral parlour, where they get the body in the coffin in the ground on time. But one day they find everyone enjoying themselves at the funerals of a new competitor – the impossibly perfect Eric Chapman! With their dogsbody Georgie, and a mouse called Madeleine, the Funns are taking drastic steps to stay in business

This hilarious multi-award winning sitcom is one of the leading voices in British fiction podcasting. Join the cast for a live performance and find out why the funeral industry of Piffling Vale has brought so many laughs (and a few tears) around the world.

'Inspired comedy.'

The Times

'As good, if not better, than any Radio 4 comedy offering. It’s about rival funeral directors and it’s fab.'

The Guardian

'A quietly significant moment in British radio comedy.'

The Daily Telegraph

'I. Am. In - oh boy this is great - I am in love.'
