The Olympiads Lounge

Synopsis

The Olympiads Lounge is an underground club where the Greek Gods come together and perform their stand-up comedy routines. Having abandoned Mt Olympus and finding it hard to integrate into society this seems to be their only outlet. But having been on tour for months this, a documentary of their final gig, cannot have come at a better time as the cast begin to get very tetchy with each other and begin to question what they are doing.

This film documents their on stage performances and features a behind the scenes look at how this all started and what its like to be a Greek God in the twenty-first century.
