Back in 2008, The Guild of the Forbidden Helmet started out as a comedy collective for writers and performers in Oxford, UK. Different people came and went, but a small band of foolhardy idiots kept up their writing and performing for a number of years. They established a relationship with the Media Department of Buckingham New University, who helped them film and produce a small number of video sketches.
Then, in 2010, two of the biggest idiots were approached by Oxford actor and voice-over artist Alex Babic, who had persuaded BBC local radio to commission a short sketch series. Between the three of them; plus a couple of additional talented voice actors, they wrote, performed and co-produced Alien Fudge (in association with Buckingham New University) for BBC Radio Oxford, which aired in February & March 2011.
Here are some of our favourite sketches:
