The story of a guy caught between a day job
and a dream…
Arlo Thurston cuts trees for a living. But when no one’s watching, he’s the world’s greatest entertainer. The trouble is, no one’s watching. Or rather, they don’t know they are. That’s because Arlo’s always entertaining…he doesn’t know when to stop. Hollywood, however, couldn’t care less. So Arlo stands outside, on the edge of “The Business”, doing his own business—going guerilla to make his special brand of man-on-the-street entertainment. monkeYman. Life’s hard…comedy’s harder.
“Venice Beach has a well earned reputation for welcoming the creative and the strange alike into its community of personalities. MonkeyMan pays tribute to the Spirit Of Venice through the story of one man’s life in the entertainment trenches, and does that spirit true justice.”
