Quotes & Awards

  • “There are several great Wodehouse narrators—Martin Jarvis and Edward Duke, for example—who can sound wry and silly and imperious and pompous as the characters biff on and off the stage. Jonathan Cecil is one of them. He has a twinkle in his voice as the characters blunder about.”


  • “Jonathan Cecil, equally adept at the silly and the pompous, matches Alexander Spencer and Martin Jarvis as a great Wodehouse interpreter.”

    Library Journal

  • “P. G. Wodehouse is still the funniest writer ever to have put words on paper.”

    Hugh Laurie, praise for the author

  • “Wodehouse is the greatest comic writer ever.”

    Douglas Adams, praise for the author

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Jane | 2/11/2014

    " Don't get me wrong; I love PG Wodehouse. However, in short story form and without Jeeves, it develops a feeling of sameness that makes it hard to keep plowing through. I chuckled a decent bit, so I'm happy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by J B Mills | 2/2/2014

    " Funny. A little predictable after a bit. The stories with "Bingo" are definitely the best. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Madeeha Maqbool | 1/8/2014

    " Bingo Little has become one of my favourite Wodehouse characters. I tried to read the first story aloud to my sister but I was laughing too hard. She had to read it herself and was as enamoured of him as I am. He's turned out to be one of the best things we share. "

    " One of his best. Really, really lose-your-breath funny. "
