What happens when you throw together two commercial radio hosts, a stand-up comedian, a Triple J broadcaster and a trained monkey named Raoul, and get them to write something funny?
Well, first, the monkey dies. We just did not know what to feed him. Vale Raoul. And second, you end up with a strange, wonderful and in no way hubristic sketch comedy team! Presented by four semi-shevelled Gen Y hipster nerds – Paul Verhoeven (Triple J), Luke Ryan (2009 Melbourne International Comedy Festival sell-out Luke's Got Cancer), and Matt Saraceni and Dan Debuf (NovaFM's Action Battle Team) – THE LORDS OF LUXURY are definitely destined to become one of the most acclaimed comedic endeavours in all of human history.
Expect laughs. Expect tears. And expect sketches that were obviously written with a monkey in mind, which are now being performed by Matt.
“The Lords of Luxury are the kind of dudes I would like to invite over to recline on the bean bags inside my mind...most excellently funny” Sam Simmons
