Evidently, show business will be no easier in the future than it is now. As a comedy duo wends its way around the intergalactic circuit, they must deal with a too-cute android, conspiracies and disintegrating planets all in pursuit of that terminal disease, fame. All the while, a robot called Carlton tries to solve the mystery that is life, the universe and—no, wait, that’s another author. Carlton just wants to understand what comedy is. Life may be the simpler puzzle…

Proving as adept a comic writer as he was at comedic acting, Eric Idle brings this all screamingly to life, even as he pokes fun at the comedy troupe he was part of for so many productive years.
