NEW YORK, October 2, 2017 - Comedy is heading to the Con. Comedy Central franchises South Park, Drunk History and The President Show will all be partaking in the festivities at 2017 New York Comic Con at Javits Center, located at 655 West 34 Street in Manhattan. Comedy Central will present The President Show and Drunk History panels in room 1A06 on Friday, October 6 from 5:15 p.m. - 6:15 p.m. and 6:15 p.m. - 7:15 p.m., respectively, and South Park's interactive fan activation will take place all weekend, Thursday, October 5 - Sunday, October 8 during convention hours (Thursday-Saturday from 10:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m. and Sunday from 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.).
South Park's interactive activation will transport fans into a 3D replica scene from the iconic Member Berries episode. While joining Randy at the Marsh's family dinner table, fans will take the "Member Berries Challenge" - where they will be asked three South Park trivia questions as they sit in Sharon and Shelly's seats. If the fan answers all three correctly, they will walk away clean and be rewarded with their very own limited edition Member Berry and NY Comic-Con exclusive T-shirt. However, if a fan answers incorrectly, Member Berry juice will be spew out of Randy's mouth! Ponchos and protective glasses will be available.
Oh Boy Oh Boy! The President Show creator Anthony Atamanuik, who is the host and plays Donald J. Trump, and executive producer Peter Grosz, who plays his sidekick Vice President Mike Pence, will both appear in character to hold the best and most tremendous panel NYCC has ever witnessed. The BEST and MOST tremendous. Moderated by political talk show host and commentator, Sam Seder, The President Show panel will include an exclusive inside look into the series, the greatest Q&A with the people and other very big things. BIG. Comedy Central's The President Show, a topical weekly late-night series, airs Thursday nights directly from "the Oval Office" and features such late-night staples as desk segments, field pieces and guest interviews.
Stick around after because it's time to raise a glass to Emmy(R) winning Drunk History! Derek Waters (co-creator/host/director), Jeremy Konner (co-creator/director), recurring narrators Katie Nolan, Amber Ruffin and Duncan Trussell, moderated by Jack McBrayer, will walk you through how this liquored-up narration of American history works, with the help of an ever-changing cast of intoxicated actors and comedians. Booze helps bring out the truth; it's just that sometimes the truth is a little incoherent! From humble beginnings as a digital series to four seasons on Comedy Central, Derek and friends have plenty of stories to share from the making of the show. Stop by to get an exclusive sneak peek at the upcoming season, a Q&A and plenty more Drunk History debauchery!
