Hollywood Fringe: What if A Prairie Home Companion were hijacked?

June 13, 2010

As a public radio employee, I relate to this show, whether I want to or not…

Monica Miklas writes, “As an avid KPCC listener, I know what kind of impact local public radio has on the culture and arts scene in Los Angeles. LOST MOON RADIO’s mix of theater, comedy, and music, as well as its passion for all things radio make it a production you’re sure to love.”

FROM THE RELEASE: Imagine A Prairie Home Companion mating with Monty Python’s Flying Circus at the Woodstock festival. That’s your starting point for LOST MOON RADIO, a hip and irreverent evening of comedy where, at last, the millennium generation has its own live radio hour.

Each episode of LOST MOON RADIO is a one-hour “broadcast” from DJ Jupiter Jack, a fried-out remnant of the 1960s who, against all odds, maintains a radio program he claims to transmit from the “Lost Moon of Jupiter”.

Audience members watch Jack “spin” psychedelic songs and comedic sketches, which are performed live by a company of seasoned comedy actors and a seven-piece band. It’s a laugh-out-loud, hard rocking, delightfully bizarre ride through the cosmos of comedy and live music.

After being named “SHOW OF THE YEAR 2009” by http://www.facebook.com/l/7f526;LiveComedyLA.com, LOST MOON RADIO is invading the inaugural Hollywood Fringe Festival’s featured venue, Fringe Central, with a brand-new batch of psychedelic comedy exploring the theme of “America”.

    I’ve been praying Prairie Home would be highjacked. Or buried.
