Carlton is an android
working for Alex and
Lewis, two comedians
from the twenty-second
century who travel the
outer vaudeville cirouit of the
solar system known ironically
as the Road to Mars. Being a computer he can’t understand
irony, but is nevertheless attempting
to write a thesis about comedy, its place in
evolution, and whether it can ever be cured.
He is studying the comedians of the late twentieth
century (inciuding obscure ansl esoteric comedy acts
such as Monty Python’s FlyIng Circus in his search for
the comedy gene.
Meanwhile, during an audition for a gig on the
Princess Di (a solar cruise ship), his two employers
inadvertently become involved in a terrorist plot
against Mars, the planet of showbiz.
Can Carlton prevent Alex and Lewis from losing their
gigs, overcome the love thing, and finally understand
the meaning of comedy in the universe.
