Kevin Geeks Out is the comedy-variety show hosted by writer-comedian Kevin Maher—a confabulation of vintage film clips and videos, new finds, guest experts, games and curiosities. To geek out with Kevin you don’t need to be a geek, you just need to love cool stuff.
This month, Kevin Geeks Out about MONKEYS. Long before cats captivated internet-users, funny primates dazzled audiences. The 2-hour show will feature dozens of clips from classic (and lesser-known) movies and TV shows, spanning 7 decades. Plus Saturday morning cartoons, pop songs and comedy shorts about apes, chimps, gorillas, orangutans, baboons and more. Our experts celebrate primate entertainment with trivia, snacks, prizes rare footage you won’t find on YouTube or Netflix.
The line-up includes:
Elliott Kalan (writer from "The Daily Show") observes how the “sexually aroused gorilla” has become a horrifying comedy trope.
Professor Geoff Klock examines the Gorilla as Super-Villain.
Monkey poetry by “Spoken Nerd” Artist Ernie Cline (screenwriter, Fanboys)
Writer M. Sweeney Lawless shares a gallery of the best and worst examples of “Apes on Comic Book Covers”.
Host Kevin Maher looks at the legacy of KING KONG.
Plus trivia games and prizes.
