Widely regarded as one of the hottest rising stars of Australian comedy, Damien brings his new show to the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Monkeys in Space is about monkeys. In space.
When the first monkey went into space, he floated amazingly above the earth, surrounded by incredible technology. Alone and anxious, all the monkey did was masturbate. As society and technology move forward at an exponential rate propelling us further from our roots, we are confused, distracted and less engaged in the world outside of ourselves. We really are just monkeys in space.
2012 was an incredible year in comedy for Damien, selling out shows in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney Comedy Festivals. After reaching the finals in the RAW Comedy competition, Damien was selected to perform in their exclusive showcase of Australia’s best emerging comedians, The Comedy Zone.
