“In the distant future, humanity has its last stand against the tyrant computer ILLUSIONOID. A lone survivor sends messages backwards through time in hopes that he can provide a warning of the danger to come. Will you heed his warnings? Open your ears and hone your senses, for without immediate action, none can escape the future that is ILLUSIONOID…”
Illusionoid is an improvised sci-fi comedy in an old-time radio style, mixing in music and sound effects on the fly. The title of episode comes from audience suggestions, and the cast (comprising core regulars Paul Bates, Lee Smart and Nug Nahrgang and per-episode special guests) then use it as a starting point to take the story in directions that even they can’t predict!
As mentioned the episode titles come from the audience, which is via social media suggestions for the studio based shows, and from an actual live audience for the shows recorded in a comedy club. Some examples are Panic In Year Zero, The Suitcase Of Cranio, and one of my favourites, The Gaseous Apothecary!
