The Multiverse Keeps Going

11 Apr

The Multiverse – that glorious new online portal for sci-fi related silliness from Warwick Davies – has unleashed two new TVO flavoured slices of nonsense to savour.

The latest edition of The Day They Came To Suck Out Our Brains was released today, and features Alex Kirk as the Prime Minister, with Stephen Evans as his advisor Brain Brian.  You can see the results below.

The ten part web-show is from the genius minds of Bob PipeJames Wren and Phil Whelans, and features music from Waen Shepherd and a large ensemble cast including Colin Hoult, Richard Glover, Gareth Tunley Pros From Dover star Sean Garratt, Chris Kendall, Lizzie Roper, Kerry Gilbert and Multiverse mastermind Warwick Davies.  TVO can also exclusively reveal that two more TVO regulars will be making an appearance in the coming weeks: none other than Antony Elvin and Will Summers, so stay tuned for that!

Gareth Tunley has also uploaded a fun Multiverse sketch of his own: The Day The Earth Kept Going.  It stars Mike Wozniak as a blathering UFO spotter with a dislike of YouTube commentators, and can be seen below.
