The Thrilling Adventure Hour Announces Comic-Con Plans

Off Site/Parties, San Diego Comic Con '13

THE THRILLING ADVENTURE HOUR MAKES ITS COMIC-CON INTERNATIONAL DEBUT. FINALLY.

Six live performances, two VIP after parties, multiple panels and signing events both on and off the convention floor… all to celebrate the SDCC-exclusive preview of their graphic novel with Archaia

Stage show. Nerdist Industries podcast. Graphic Novel. Web Series. Concert Film. Their stage graced by such Comic-Con luminaries as Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Nathan Fillion, John Krasinski, Emily Blunt, “Weird” Al Yankovic, Chris Hardwick, Zachary Levi, and many, many more. After over 100 consecutive shows and one of the most successful comics campaigns in Kickstarter history, The Thrilling Adventure Hour (TAH) celebrates its biggest year to date by making its Comic-Con International debut with an onslaught of special events celebrating the SDCC-exclusive preview of their upcoming graphic novel anthology with Eisner Award-winning publisher Archaia Entertainment.

To begin the SDCC festivities, Archaia will host the panel “The Thrilling Adventure Hour World Domination Tour” on Friday, July 19th at 4:00 PM in Room 32AB at the San Diego Convention Center. During this fun-filled panel, TAH co-creators Ben Acker and Ben Blacker will moderate an all-star line-up as they discuss their exciting year. Guests may include artists from the graphic novel and both cast and crew from the show and web series currently in production. A book signing with the co-creators and various WorkJuice Players will occur before Friday’s panel at the Archaia booth 2229 from 1:30 PM – 3:30 PM.

Outside the convention center, fans can enjoy a series of TAH events during SDCC weekend sponsored by Regent Publishing Services, the acclaimed printer behind their upcoming graphic novel with Archaia:

On Saturday morning at 11:30 AM at Petco Park, The Thrilling Adventure Hour is one of the distinguished guests of Nerd HQ’s popular “Conversations for a Cause” series. With 100% of all ticket sales donated to the charity Operation Smile, Nerd HQ’s popular panel series will grant TAH fans a unique opportunity to interact with their favorite stars during an un-moderated, up-close conversation.

Finally, the WorkJuice Corporation and Quixotic Transmedia are proud to announce the Horton Grand Theatre as the official home of The Thrilling Adventure Hour for Comic-Con International 2013. Located at 444 4th Avenue (just a few blocks from the convention center), the Horton Grand will host six staged events in their 250-seat proscenium theatre, including live TAH performances at 7PM and 9:30 PM on both Friday, July 19th and Saturday, July 20th. “The Horton Grand is the perfect home for The Thrilling Adventure Hour,” says TAH co-creator Ben Blacker. “The beautiful architecture and its rich, old-timey spirit really make you feel like TAH was destined to play there. Like it’s been there all along.”

There are three pricing tiers for the Horton Grand Theatre TAH events:

$25.00: Basic ticket to any one performance on Friday or Saturday night

$35.00: One basic ticket to the early 7PM show (either Friday or Saturday night) plus one admission to an exclusive one-hour signing event, which occurs after the Early Show on either night. Only 100 tickets available for each night!

$45.00: One basic ticket to the late 9:30 PM show (either Friday or Saturday night) plus access to our VIP WorkJuice after party! Only 150 tickets available to hang out with the cast and crew in the gorgeous Horton ballroom from 11PM to 2AM. This is a party you definitely do not want to miss!

On Saturday, July 20th at 4:00 PM in the Horton Grand Theatre, TAH fans can also enjoy one amazing opening act: SuperEgo Live! Experience the popular podcast SuperEgo live on stage, as you enter the world of the Superego Clinic for Analytical Pscience. Here doctors Matt Gourley, Jeremy Carter, Mark McConville, and Resident Specialist Paul F. Tompkins introduce you to a variety of curious characters. Weirdos, really. A bunch of self-absorbed swellheads, improvised and analyzed before your very eyes.

TAH events with NERD HQ and the Horton Grand are open to anyone and not exclusive to SDCC attendees. There is no limit to how many tickets you can buy. The Friday and Saturday shows at the Horton Grand will feature different cast members and different tales, and fans should purchase their tickets soon, as the entire TAH series of live events are expected to sell out shortly.

Tickets to both the opening act and the main performances are available online now at http://tahsdcc.brownpapertickets.com and http://superego.brownpapertickets.com

Sponsored by Regent Publishing Services, this phenomenal weekend of must-see events celebrates the upcoming release of the first TAH graphic novel debuting nationwide in late August 2013. The book was made possible by a widely successful Kickstarter campaign in late 2012, which raised $192K in 30 days to finance a graphic novel, a web series, and a concert film. The campaign was produced by the book’s editor, Joe LeFavi of Quixotic Transmedia, who also facilitated the Archaia publishing deal and the various SDCC special events mentioned above alongside the TAH co-creators. “We are truly humbled by the tremendous support that we’re received from friends and fans alike this past year,” says TAH co-creator Ben Acker. “We’ve always dreamed of attending SDCC in such a big way, and we can’t wait to share what everyone has made possible with so many great friends.”
