Science Fiction Comedy (what the juck?)

Mission to Zyxx is a silly, imaginative, and strangely addictive comedic send-up to sci-fi space opera. It is improvised and seems unedited (it is actually edited but you can hear the actors sometimes laughing at their own performances. The sound effects are quite good and the plot holds together brilliantly.
Sci-fi fans will recognize the skewering of Star Wars, Star Trek and many other sci-fi shows which they hilariously spoof.
You should start at the beginning and listen to them in order as they refer back to previous stories and build upon them.

The show was created by: Alden Ford, Seth Lind, Moujan Zolfaghari, Shane O’Connell, Allie Kokesh, Jeremy Bent, and Winston Noel: A stellar cast with impressive credentials. Workingthegalaxy intended to list all of their accomplishments but the list got too long. 
The track record of acting, directing, producing, and writing of this group is so extensive it is no wonder they are able to recruit such terrific guest-actors as:

Sasheer Zamata
Connor Ratliff
John Rober Wilson
John Murray
Lauren Adams
Michael Cruz Kanye
Zach Cherry
Jon Gabrus
Lorraine Cink
Jordan Carlos
Josh Patten
Caitlin Puckett
Lydia Hensler
Justin Tyler
Paul F. Thompkins
Jeff Hiller
Ali Gordon
Dru Johnston
Laura Willcox
Nicole Drespel
Lennon Parham
Alex Song
Christopher Scott
Matt Little
Sebastian Conelli
Bobby Moynihan
Arnie Niekamp
Adal Rifai
Matt Young
Jonathan Braylock
Rekha Shankar
Leslie Collins
Brandon Scott Jones
Yoni Lotan

The story never (so far) mentions Earth or humans, so it could be anywhere and anytime in the universe as it follows a group of eccentric characters who begin season one as ambassadors. This changes later when they become rebels. In fact, the whole story follows some sort of bizarre arc as the characters develop and change.
Like any entertainment, it is not everyone’s cup of tea, but it does keep me coming back for more. Check it out wherever the finest audio drama is found.
