Million Dollar Hilarious!
L.A.’s darling sketch comedy group Lost Moon Radio continues it’s reign supreme in its newly minted Million Dollar Hair, an awards ceremony-style retrospective of music industry mogul, Bernie Schonfeld, pitifully celebrated by the has beens of music icon, who have, against all reason, made him a fortune — all but his daughter. This pathetic assemblage has arrived to show devotion, respect, adoration and temporarily resurrect their careers in front of a live audience of fans and celebs.
Absurdly devised and hosted resentfully by Bernie’s only daughter, the amalgamated cast of characters one by one, make their way onto the performance stage to shamefully steal the spotlight more for themselves rather than honor the genius who took each of these artists from total obscurity to the heights of stardom.
Of course, he’s more than occasionally over-promised and under-delivered, left everyone flat taking off for Europe in a tax scandal, forcing his daughter to live in the horror of a middle class childhood, hoodwinked a few of them out of residuals, married half of them or at least stolen a wife away…no matter.
For the man who was said to have spent more than a fortune on hair care – his real personal passion – and who was eventually ousted from his own company by a group of ruthless 12 years old music executives groomed by his own for-profit educational program, it is a send-off befitting a producing King of Pop.
One of those ‘you’ve got to be kidding me’ stories that you really have wonder “Is this really fictitious?”
Running time 65 minutes.
But…and that’s a big one…This group is astoundingly prolific musically and otherwise. If you miss today’s show, Lost Moon Radio can be enjoyed throughout the year via their regular programming with host D.J. Jupiter Jack.
