Fitness fanatic, Donald Leek, indulges in a monthly Chunky Monkey experience with songstress, Julie Andrews, who he’s expecting at 7:30pm. Before she arrives however, he has to dispose of the body parts of Mr Azam, manager of his favourite Indian restaurant, who has neglected to send him a Christmas card. He is interrupted by a peculiar assortment of unwelcome visitors, amongst them Jesus Christ and a one-testicled self-made millionaire. Each one is as unhinged as their host, who retaliates to the intrusion in extreme fashion.With some truly mesmerising performances, Chunky Monkey is a highly original and disgracefully funny black comedy with bizarre characters in a surreal situation.
