Trevor and Sammy are the movers and shakers at TS Sports
Stars agency. Friends for twenty years, and business partners
for nine, they are chalk and cheese. Trevor is thoughtful,
honest and sensitive while Sammy is a rapacious dealmaker
with the morals of a hyena. In these six episodes, we follow
Trevor and his partner as they deal, in their very different
ways, with colleagues and clients...
World of Sport is written by Andy Hamilton and while the
comedy takes place in a sports setting it's not essential
that you are a sports fan. This series reminded me a lot of
Drop the Dead Donkey - which Hamilton also wrote.
One of the radio series revolves around the employees
of the TS Sports Stars agency. In amongst all the office politics,
we get to meet some of the odd sports personalities that the
agency represents, as well as some of the office staffs' families.
Sammy spends most of his time lusting after their highly intelligent
lesbian receptionist Heirdrun, Trevor finds himself grappling
with egotists, opportunists, raging alcoholics and religious
extremists - not to mention naive footballer Jason; a Buddhist;
a polar explorer; someone called Biggsy; an impossibly difficult
tennis star and of course Ralph, the ultimate client from
hell. Then there's his estranged wife Meryl, and his son,
Toby - who is a teenager, with all the horror that entails.
For Trevor, life is a shark tank, and it's a constant struggle
to stay afloat.
not one of the best comedy series I've ever heard (sadly a
lot of the jokes can be heard coming from a hundred miles
away) this CD collection is still pretty amusing.
