Lo, the great cataclysm has come to pass
and He has broken the machine—
The Bumblefish with his self-demise.
The order of Mammon must reconvene.
Do not deny your covetousness!
You must be present for
The Fleecing.

“I am Saklas! I am Ialdoboath! 

I am Martin Owlglass!

Thunder, perfect mind, and begone!”

—Last words of the Most Honorable Bumblefish,
Sixth Arch-Magister of the Telluric Age

A witty and alluring world where Douglas Adams meets Monty Python meets Almanac’s signature pairing of earnest, personal theatricality and circus feats... This is the fleecing for which the show is named—a process absurd enough to mask its injustice, and so much fun we don’t mind the absurdity.
