The Idiots of Ants are bringing their unique blend of fast-paced sketch comedy to Radio 7, in four fifteen minute episodes.

This new show is set on a gadget show in the year 2020, a future where teleportation, time travel and invisibility are common place activities. In this brave new (and stupid) world, the Idiots will guide you through a whole host of new inventions, including a personal diary which writes itself (either in the style of Andy McNab or Mills & Boon) and a teasmaid which lets you travel back in time.
