FOXDOG STUDIOS: Robot Chef

Chortle award-nominees and IT superstars Foxdog Studios bring their unique brand of techy comedy to the world-famous Speigeltent.

In Robot Chef, Pete and Lloyd present a unique comedy-tech experience, where the audience connect their phones to Foxdog's own WiFi to play games, music and more. The comedic duo has audiences draw their own characters and control them onstage through augmented reality, with their character's controlling Foxdog's 3D-printed custom tech - igniting a fully automated stove, driving a sky tractor and firing a head-mounted sausage cannon to cook and serve a meal of sausage and beans (it's the simplest way).

As heard on BBC Radio 4 Extra and featured in WIRED Magazine.

 

5 stars The Skinny - ‘Ridiculous, unique and so funny your face will hurt’
4 stars The List - ‘A huge treat for everyone’
