Publisher's Summary

How far would you go to get your dream job?

In The Temp, Warren (Marek Larwood) is sent to a variety of temp jobs by his recruitment officer Aimee (Vicki Pepperdine) on the promise that if he does a good job, it might become permanent. And each time, the job turns out to be more dangerous and ludicrous than advertised. Open-minded to the point of mindless, Warren never seems to notice that the job is very different to the job description - he just wants to do a good job, and get made permanent.

Funny & Entertaining

I got to this one as Audible was promoting a bunch of titles for free in January.
I enjoyed The Temp, a British comedy of the various exploits of a temp is who isn't particularly bright. The Temp, Warren, temps as a Chauffeur, a Lab Assistant, a Prison Warden, a Data Entry guy, a Flight Attendant and then finally joins a cult.

The stories are goofy and the performances are excellent what makes the whole thing very entertaining.

Good light listen

A nice audio theatrical. Good for some short and fun listening, when you don't want to hear some serious stuff.

Great Performance

It's my first experience with audible and "The temp" was the one of the first things I've listened too. Absolutely loved it. The performance was thrilling. The story though could be a little better. actually they set the bar high with the first couple of episodes. Overall loved it 😍

A fun journey through the life of a temp

It was unexpectedly funny, though some parts felt a bit stretched and few episodes with nice setup but overall bad conclusion.
Still the performances made it fun.

Wasn't Sure at First, but...

the whole series is absolutely hysterical, the characters are well played and some pretty good lines to boot. I sat here in the beach giggle to myself and quite often laughing out loud, which probably made me look like a simpleton suffering from sun stroke.

Hilariously well written.

Very funny & very unique storylines.

This could easily be imagined as a prequel of "Karl Pilkington" before the TV series.

Fantastic short stories to listen to in the car and gym and want a laugh.

Excellent!

I absolutely love this show & am hoping for a second series. The writing is excellent & the performance & characterisations make this such an enjoyable listen when you have half an hour to kill. The different escapades Warren the temp finds himself in are ridiculous, yet draw you in & end up believable to his character. His friend & employer at the temp agency, Amy, is always available to lend a helping hand & they make a fantastic & unstoppable pair! Please make more!

I can't believe someone even though this audio book was a good idea. Not even remotely amusing in fact quite nauseating to listen to.

Could've been good. But it's not.

This must've been written for children. May as well be written by a kid. Very plain humour, and unfunny. And the main character having no brains is just annoying after a while.

Good fun.

A nonsensical good laugh in typical British style. Reminiscent of the Goons, Python or the Goodies. Peppered with one liners and Dad jokes. Loved it!
