Remote Planet is a half-hour weekly sketch-comedy series.  Every Wednesday, we take you on an adventurous ride through outlandish sketch comedy, featuring a talented array of writers and voice actors.  We are currently gearing up for our fourteenth season on CKCU.

Remote Planet was founded in 1999 by writer and radio producer Chris Laursen, as a semi-scripted, semi-improvised program of randomness featuring a good dose of independent music. The show has continued to evolve, and the current crew centers around Marc-André Bélair, Bill Demmery, Danny Enright (RP's West Coast connection), Richard Hemphill, Richard "Dick" Parks (our on-air host) and Tonia Snow.

The show can be heard every Wednesday at 4:30 p.m. (16:30 ET / 20:30 GMT). You can catch it live via

Our website features a wealth of information, including complete season and episode guides, castmember info, photos, and nine seasons' worth of podcasts for your listening pleasure.
