How did we get here? What is the meaning of life? And is it possible to lick your elbow?
We’ve been on a mission asking you, the general public, what you really want to know. Then, we chose two of our favourite artists to answer these burning questions using any means at their disposal.
Before your very eyes, our unreliable experts build, battle and brawl as they attempt to resolve some of life’s epic mysteries from the big bang to the afterlife and many conundrums in between.
It’s a creation about creation. A big hearted and hilarious escapade for the whole family that guarantees your most baffling question answered… sort of.
