In one afterlife you may find that God is the size of a microbe and is unaware of your existence. In another, your creators are a species of dim-witted creatures who built us to figure out what they could not. In a different version of the afterlife you work as a background character in other people’s dreams. Or you may find that the afterlife contains only people whom you remember, or that the hereafter includes the thousands of previous gods who no longer attract followers.

A magical mix of Noel’s unique brand of stand up comedy, live animation, music and some of Fielding’s best-known TV characters (such as The Moon and Fantasy Man). There will also be muscular support from special guests including Mike Fielding (Naboo/Smooth).
