SPACE MONKEY'S STORY...
Unwittingly launched into outer space as a young monkey-child, with nothing but a box of bananas and a stack of disco records, Space Monkey grew to become a world-famous, galaxy-trotting, extra-terrestrial dancing machine.
Since returning to Earth, he has been known to appear unannounced all over his hometown of New York City, as well as a growing number of cities around the world – and now in Montreal –, inciting dance parties and good times wherever he goes.
