'''The Infinite Monkey Cage''' is a [[Creator/TheBBC BBC Radio 4]] comedy and science series hosted by physicist [[HotScientist Brian Cox]] and comedian [[DeadpanSnarker Robin Ince]], on air since November 2009.
Each show discusses a specific science topic and normally has three guests; two scientists to offer an expert opinion, and third, normally a comedian, to add some levity. Occasionally, as in the case of [[Series/TheArmstrongAndMillerShow Ben Miller]] and [[Creator/DaraOBriain Dara Ó Briain]] (who both studied physics to Phd level), they may have a background in science too.
!!This series includes examples of:
* BerserkButton: Do NOT mention astrology near Brian Cox.
* BritishBrevity: Only six episodes per series, but in series one to three there were only four.
* CatchPhrase: "AND THIS IS OUR PANEL!"
* ExpositoryThemeTune: Having gone for several series without one, there is now a song [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1tdN5uEjnKs specially written]] by [[Creator/MontyPython Eric Idle]].
* TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers: When introducing Sir Patrick Stewart in a episode about "Space Exploration" Robin Ince reels off a long list of his classical and Shakespearean theatre credits before ending with "and some American TV show as well".
* RunningGag: When a strawberry is considered dead.
** Brian's perfect hair (which may or may not be a wig).
