Best known for his work with Monty Python's Flying Circus, Terry Jones lends his signature voice and style to Douglas Adams's Starship Titanic. The wacky tale of scientific genius Leovinus's ill-fated starship is brought to life by Jones's vocal acrobatics. Nearly every member of this stupefyingly odd cast of characters seems to be on the verge of a nervous breakdown or death by sheer boredom-- and the variety works splendidly. Jones fleshes out the circus of activity with comedic aplomb, bringing the absolutely right feel to the audio presentation. Starship Titanic is more fun than you can shake a fish paste sandwich at.
