Garry Starr – Classic Penguins

Producer: MILKE
Writer: Damien Warren-Smith
Directed By: Damien Warren-Smith

One Hour. One Idiot. Every Penguin Classic Novel.

Synopsis

The polar ice caps are melting!

By this time next year, penguins will have nowhere to live. Having already saved pretty much everything else, Garry Starr is now taking it upon himself to single-handedly save our flightless, feathered friends from extinction by performing every Penguin Classic novel ever written. In an hour. Mostly naked (but with flippers).
