Welcome to ... The Nether Regions: a place where the laws of physics and even time itself take a day off, put their feet up and watch daytime television in their underpants.
This is our world, today, though not quite the today we know. And not entirely the world we live in. But nearly.
Your guides through this madness, fresh from their success creating The Quanderhorn Xperimentations: Rob Grant (Red Dwarf) and Andrew Marshall (2point4 Children), together with young performers, new to radio but familiar to the Job Centre.
Come with us to a land of Bastards, Boobs and Bottoms, where nobody wears any underwear, even though it's permanently winter. No, not Newcastle: it's Throne of Forks.
Join old men talking sh*t - the call-in hosts of Impotent Rage FM - London's premier station for exasperated seniors.
Meet the permanently angry chef, who vents his foul-mouthed invective on diners with the temerity to question his serving Chicken on an Electric Fence with a side of Gasping Fish.
Recoil in disgust as you witness the appalling conditions in backstreet emoji farms.
Let Rob and Andrew and their callow young carers take you on a whistle stop tour of uncannity and strangeositude.
Performed before a live studio audience and a dead wasp.
