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 footage you won’t find on YouTube or Netflix.
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.
Writer Meg Sweeney Lawless shares a gallery of the best and worst examples of “Apes on Comic Book Covers”.
Filmmaker Bill Scurry recounts the online adventures of his pet chimpanzee, Chester Balonie.
Host Kevin Maher looks at the legacy of KING KONG.
With trivia from quizmaster Noah Tarnow (from the upcoming “Big Quiz Thing” TV show)
And a special monkey movie clip from 92Y Tribeca Film Programmer Cristina Cacioppo.
