What would happen if Cannibal Corpse and Coast 2 Coast AM made sweet, sweet love? And what if the resulting fetus were nursed to maturity by a tag team comprised of Eric Andre and the bassline from 'Seinfeld'? The outcome, of course, would surely be a hideously-mangled shoggoth of comedic psychedelia resembling the entity known as ILLOGICAL CONTRAPTION. 
Beginning as a music blog in December 2008, IllCon has grown and mutated over the years, first morphing into a live radio show/podcast, but sprouting slippery tentacles into the realms of video, stage, merchandising, and street pranksterism as well. Eventually birthing two spin-off shows (IllCon: Nights After Dark and Death Metal Dads, respectively), hosts Cory, Shelby, Erik, Al, and Sara have seen a parade of diverse guests pass through their wriggling airwaves: comedians like Dave Attel, Gilbert Gottfried, Greg Proops, and Brian Posehn, musicians such as Oderus Urungus from GWAR and Genesis P. Orridge from Psychic TV--even fringe weirdos like Longmont Potion Castle, Peaches Christ, and... Alex Trebek? 
It's been a strange and ultimately goofy upbringing, but the Illcon Toddler keeps lumbering forward, leaving a tepid miasma of half-baked comedy, conspiracy theory, heavy metal, pop culture, and general stupidity in its wake. 2018 will mark Illogical Contraption third appearance at SF Sketchfest, and their first within the confines of the historic Cafe du Nord. Theirs is a show not to be missed, as to describe it with words would be an impossible task--even for a madman.
