I won’t be able to be at C2E2, but Thrilling Adventure Hour will be! And let’s be honest, that’s totally better!
The Thrilling Adventure Hour (TAH) is a staged show in the style of old time radio in which actors you know and love from TV, film and animation act out all manner of genre based comedy segments. They’re also a hit Nerdist podcast, an Eisner-nominated graphic novel, a web series, a concert film and a new comic series from Image Comics.
Having spent 2014 selling out live performances in Seattle, San Francisco, San Diego, Chicago, Los Angeles and New York City (twice) and performing cross-over shows with the likes of Welcome to Night Vale (twice) and Wits, they’re returning to Chicago for a weekend of fun before the embark upon the Thrilling Adventure Hour Down Under tour to Australia & New Zealand in May. #TAHDownUnder
