Pee-wee Herman Takes the Stage at San Diego Comic-Con

Fresh off his recent Emmy® nomination for the HBO production of his Broadway show, Pee-wee Herman will take the stage in Hall H at next week’s San Diego Comic-Con 2011. The sure-to-be-spectacular solo panel will be in Hall H on Thursday, July 21 at 1:15pm.  The three-time Emmy® nominated HBO special, THE PEE-WEE HERMAN SHOW ON BROADWAY, comes to DVD in October from Image Entertainment.

Said Pee-wee Herman of his upcoming Comic-Con® visit: “Initially I was coming to San Diego with the cast of Twilight, but we’ve since decided it’s better for them to have two separate panels. I am SOOOO excited I can hardly breathe!”

THE PEE-WEE HERMAN SHOW ON BROADWAY reunites Paul Reubens and Marty Callner, who directed both this new television production and the 1981 HBO special “The Pee-wee Herman Show.”

The character of Pee-wee Herman is experiencing a remarkable renaissance, with enormous followings on Facebook, Twitter and Foursquare.  Opening to critical acclaim at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre on Nov. 11, 2010, “The Pee-wee Herman Show” is 90 minutes of subversive humor and childlike wonder based on both Reubens’ original stage show, “The Pee-wee Herman Show,” and the Emmy®-winning Saturday morning TV show, “Pee-wee’s Playhouse,” which became a cultural phenomenon. “Pee-wee’s Playhouse” which celebrates its 25th Anniversary in September 2011, garnered 22 Emmy® awards during its original run, and was recently ranked among the “Ten Best Kids Shows With Grown Up Appeal” by NBC’s Today Show. Renowned writer-director-producer Judd Apatow recently announced that he and Reubens are developing a new feature film based on the character.

Comedy Central To Present UGLY AMERICANS and FUTURAMA Panels at Comic-Con

COMEDY CENTRAL‘s animated series return to Comic-Con with an Ugly Americans panel on Friday, July 22 from 4:00-5:00 p.m. and a Futurama panel on Saturday, July 23 from 12:15-1:00 p.m. Interviews with “Ugly Americans” talent and producers will be held in press Room 21 from 2:30-3:45 p.m. on Friday, July 22.

Friday, July 22: Ugly Americans panel (Room 23ABC)
4:00-5:00 p.m. The panelists include Dan Powell (Executive Producer), Devin Clark (Producer and Series Creator), Aaron Augenblick (Director of Animation), Matt Oberg (voice of Mark Lilly), Kurt Metzger (voice of Randall Skeffington), Larry Murphy (voice of Lt. Grimes) and moderator Randy Pearlstein (voice of Leonard Powers). The session will feature a live, in-character table read, a behind-the-scenes look into the current second season, a sneak peak from an upcoming episode, a Q&A, a look at the highly anticipated downloadable game, “Ugly Americans: Apocalypsegeddon” and more.

Saturday, July 23: Futurama panel (Ballroom 20)
12:15-1:00 p.m. “Futurama” is back! Again!!! On stage will be Creator/Executive Producer Matt Groening, Executive Producer David X. Cohen and stars Billy West (Fry, Professor Farnsworth, Dr. Zoidberg), Katey Sagal (Leela), John DiMaggio (Bender) and Maurice LaMarche (Kif Kroker, Calculon, Morbo). A sneak peek at never-before-seen footage of “Futurama” reincarnated as Japanese anime will be revealed along with a thrilling preview from this season currently airing on COMEDY CENTRAL. Plus more! Much more! The panel will be moderated by Bill Morrison.

“Futurama,” the Emmy(R) Award-winning series, and “Ugly Americans” air as part of a weekly, one-hour “Thurs-Dimension” animation block on Thursdays from 10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT on COMEDY CENTRAL with “Futurama” from 10:00-10:30 p.m. and “Ugly Americans” from 10:30-11:00 p.m.

Take New York City, add every horrifying beast, science-fiction freak and fantasy faerie, shake thoroughly, and you’ve got “Ugly Americans,” an animated series that follows Mark Lilly, a social worker at the Department of Integration, as he helps new citizens both human and “other” adapt to hectic life in the Big Apple. There are easier tasks than soothing a vengeful mummy, being a slave in Satan’s dark army and trying to circumcise wizards, but Mark proves he’s up to the challenge, even if his co-workers are as incompetent as ever.

Mark’s case load during the second season is heavy as always and his Department of Integration colleagues are less than helpful, including Twayne (Michael-Leon Wooley), a terrorizing demonic bureaucrat; Mark’s succubus co-worker and casual fling Callie Maggotbone (Natasha Leggero), who has some strange ideas about where to take their relationship; Leonard Powers (Randy Pearlstein), an aging drunken wizard and Mark’s office mate; and Lt. Grimes (Larry Murphy), a law-enforcement officer who despises non-humans. At least Mark still has his zombie roommate Randall Skeffington (Kurt Metzger), who doesn’t care what Mark does, as long as he covers his half of the rent.

In August, MTV Networks’ “345 Games” division will release “Ugly Americans: Apocalypseggedon” (available for Xbox LIVE Arcade and PlayStation Network), a four player co-op side-scroller shooter game that features an exclusive script written by the show’s writers � including a new character unique to the game and custom voiceovers from the show’s actors. Uniting the spirit and humor of the series with addictive game play, players of “Ugly Americans: Apocalypseggedon” will hit the streets to clean up the chaos and prevent the impending apocalypse by resolving case files and fighting otherworldly citizens.
“Futurama” focuses on the life of Philip Fry (Billy West), a 25-year-old pizza delivery boy who accidentally freezes himself on December 31, 1999 and wakes up 1,000 years later with a fresh start at life at Planet Express, an intergalactic delivery company. There he meets love interest Leela (Katey Sagal), a sexy cyclops with anger management issues, and best friend Bender (John DiMaggio), a beer-powered kleptomaniac robot. The series aired for five seasons on Fox (1999 to 2003) earning Emmy(R) nominations each season while winning three times, including “Outstanding Animated Program” in 2002.

Warner Bros. To Follow Comic-Con Autograph Ticket System

Comic-Con and Warner Bros. Entertainment are announcing today that Warner Bros. will follow the official Comic-Con International: San Diego ticket distribution system for autograph signings at this year’s event.

As in years past, all signings will be held at the Warner Bros. booth, which is #4545 on the Comic-Con show floor.  But under the long-standing Comic-Con system, Warner Bros. will distribute wristbands for signings via daily ticket drawings held at Sails Pavilion #9 inside the San Diego Convention Center.

“Safety is always our main concern with signings or events, so it is Comic-Con policy that access is regulated by a drawing for a chance to win — giving all attendees an equal opportunity to enter,” said David Glanzer, director of marketing and public relations for Comic-Con International.  “We are happy that Warner Bros. has agreed to utilize this system and thank them for once again offering such unique opportunities to our attendees this year, as well as their continued support of Comic-Con.”

Fans interested in attending signings at the Warner Bros. booth should review the schedule listed below, then plan to visit the Sails Pavilion at the time of each drawing.  All fans present at the appointed time will receive numbered tickets that feature a distinct sticker. Then a randomized drawing will determine which fans receive wristbands granting access to each autograph line.

See below for the current schedule of ticket distribution and signing start times.
