Seemingly a distant cousin of Wodehouse’s Bertie Wooster, Stanley Featherstonehaugh Ukridge is a conniving British ne’er-do-well whose hare-brained schemes inevitably embroil the narrator, his old school friend “Corky” Corcoran, in some embarrassing, uncomfortable, and expensive fallout. Reader Jonanthan Cecil endows each comic character with abundant warmth and humor. He skimps not at all on vocal nuance, regional accent, and the overall sense of fun. Listeners will almost be able to see the facial expressions of the loony inhabitants of Ukridge’s world, including the absurd title character himself.
