Take a peep under the lid and ogle something a out of the ordinary, as the stories and characters we all know and love, get flipped around and dunked in wit.

With more genre comedy coming to town than ever before, this is the perfect chance to indulge in your own particular predilections. Here is a selection of some of the finest funny around. 

The jet-setting smarty pants, Project 2, have rocked audiences from Texas to Sweden with their improvised science fictions stories, eventually landing here, in bonny Bristol. 

With nods to Firefly, Back to the Future, Blade Runner, Doctor Who, Shaun of the Dead, Solaris, Futurama and every sci-fi you have ever watched, these guys know their time travelling robots from their sentient gas clouds.

The group create an entirely new and unique science fiction play every show so, jump in their telephone box and venture into the great unknown at the Bristol Improv Theatre.
