In case you missed it, ADULT SWIM is outdoing themselves this year at San Diego Comic Con with three fun-filled days of press, panels, events and talent signings under the hot San Diego sun!
Thursday and Friday at the ‘Con brought us show creators and voice talent from Childrens Hospital, Untitled Triumph / McBrayer Sitcom, Mike Tyson Mysteries, Rick and Morty, The Venture Bros., Robot Chicken, Mr. Pickles and Tim & Eric’s Bedtime Stories.
In addition, the #1 brand activation at last year’s convention by AdWeek, the Adult Swim Fun House, returned for a second year of Robot Pumps and Spasm Chasms. Nestled next to the Fun House, the Meatwad Full Dome Experience made its debut. This familiar fast-food friend guided guests on a journey through a mind-fudging interdimensional-space-coaster-love-canal.
Childrens Hospital conquered Comic Con on Thursday with a panel and signing featuring creator, executive producer and star Rob Corddry and Rob Huebel. The panel, moderator by Adult Swim’s EVP and Creative Director Mike Lazzo, highlighted the triumphant return of Childrens Hospital in 2015 for a sixth season!
Friday saw an onslaught of Adult Swim talent taking over the Con!
At the Untitled Triumph / McBrayer Sitcom panel and press hour, Jack McBrayer, Robert Smigel (SNL, TV Funhouse, Conan), Triumph and Michael Koman (Eagleheart, Nathan for You), brought the house down with a lively discussion about their new half-hour live-action comedy series premiering on Adult Swim in 2015.
