We forced Artificial Intelligence to digest massive amounts of human media and then write its own versions. Everything from The One Show, Game Of Thrones, Friends, Songs Of Praise and more via movies, fables, adverts, Shakespeare, poetry and, er, gardening tips (and much much more) are all forever ruined by technology.

We take the scripts, push them word-for-word into the mouths of actors, and the result is absurdly, joyously - and then absurdly again - hilarious.

This is the comedy that conclusively proves that AI is an absolute idiot.
