The Best Sci Fi Improv Comedy By Far

Absolutely brilliant! A fun, whacky and wild improv comedy podcast that has had me rolling on the floor with laughter. The wonderful assortment of queer characters is really lovely to hear, and this is the bright point to my week. Listening while operating heavy machinery or exercising is not advised :)

Best show ever- 1000/5

I absolutely love this show, it’s so funny and I’m so glad you continued it during lockdown. Looking forward to more amazing episodes. Thanks !

That was my first review but the episodes have been less and less good since they stopped designing plannets

Toplu ,

Surreal sci-Fi comedy

An improv sitcom about life after earth following the misadventures of Trexel and his clone assistant David7.
Most of it makes no sense but it is delightful and I am so pleased to see it back for season 3.
