Reviews

"...a delightful sitcom and sketch show that feels equal parts Monty Python and Douglas (Hitchhiker's Guide) Adams, with a lot of other odd bits sprinkled in." - Splitsider

"This strikingly offbeat show... is a good example of the genre-bending freedoms that podcasting affords. Each episode lightly skips between comic modes - from The Day Today-style news satire to self-produced comic songs to surreal narrative flights of fancy with a deftness that brings to mind the glory days of The Mighty Boosh radio series... it's had me chuckling all week." - Pete Naughton, The Telegraph
