"This monkey... is no ordinary monkey."

In one of the more unique celebrity appearances in recent memory, Crystal the Monkey - of "The Hangover: Part II" and "Zookeeper" fame - will perform at the Wildwoods Convention Center on September 4th.

Not since the heyday of Zippy the Chimp!  (How many of you are gonna get that reference?)

Here's the official press release, with the all the deets...

Movie goers of all ages will undoubtedly recognize Crystal as “Donald” the crafty, talking monkey, voiced by Adam Sandler, who sets up the nightly animal meetings in the hit comedy, “Zookeeper”. Others will recall her role as the drug-dealing, chain-smoking, menace in the hit comedy sequel “The Hangover: Part II”.

 In reality though, she is known as Crystal the Monkey, one of Hollywood’s hottest animal actors – having appeared in over 20 films since launching her career in 1997. When not making movies, Crystal, a female capuchin monkey and animal actor owned by Birds & Animals Unlimited, Inc., resides in Los Angeles, CA with her handler and trainer, Tom Gunderson.
