The Brightonomicon is a fantasy comedy drama in the style of The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy and The Mighty Boosh. It is being co-produced with BBC Audiobooks and Hokus Bloke Productions, which was set up by Gardner and [actor, David] Warner for this project.
"The market in comedy sci-fi and fantasy is huge, and radio is the only current medium that doesn't embrace it," said Gardner.
