SF – An Evening with Dr. Katz

Dr-Katz-slider

Jonathan Katz, Jon Benjamin, Tom Snyder plus patients Ron Funches, Pete Holmes, Andy Kindler, and more appear on Saturday, January 24, 2015 from 7:00pm – 8:30pm!

Press Release:

Dr. Katz Live is a stage variation of the animated show, “Dr. Katz: Professional Therapist,” created by Jonathan Katz and Tom Snyder for Comedy Central. It premiered twenty years ago in May of 1995, earning the network its first Emmy and Peabody awards and introducing the term “squigglevision” to the English language. The show has rightfully gone on to become a cult classic.

The live version (much like the cartoon version) of Dr. Katz, brings well-known standups to the good doctor’s couch, using the quirks and idiosyncrasies of their comedy acts to analyze their various conflicted issues. The stage version also finds Dr. Katz in therapy with his own shrink, Dr. Snyder. H. Jon Benjamin revives his role as Dr. Katz’s son, Ben. Guest patients for this special anniversary celebration include Ron Funches, Pete Holmes and Andy Kindler, with more surprise patients yet to be announced. $35 All Ages

Presented as part of SF Sketchfest!

Two Wrestling Legends added to ShockPop ComicCon

Jake the Snake and DDP

Shock Pop Comiccon welcomes wrestling legends Jake “The Snake” Roberts and Diamond Dallas Page

Jake thrilled fans for decades, coming to the ring with his snake Damien hidden away in a sack held over his shoulder, only to be let loose and placed across his unwilling opponents. During his time in the WWE, he crossed paths and had memorable feuds with all of the top stars, Andre The Giant, Rick Rude, Ricky the Dragon Steamboat, Ultimate Warrior, Earthquake, Honky Tonk Man, and many more. Sometimes good, often bad, he always warned you “never trust a snake”.

Jake the Snake will be joined by Diamond Dallas Page, 3 time WCW Heavyweight Champion, two time United States Champion, four time WCW Tag Team Champion, one time WCW TV Champion, one time WWF European Champion, and one time WWF World Tag Team Champion. DDP is most known for his time in WCW, and his brief time in the WWF, now WWE. DDP had notable feuds with Macho Man, Hulk Hogan, Bret Hart, Goldberg, and Undertaker, amongst many other matches throughout his entire wrestling career. 

DDP also crossed over to film, his most popular role to date being Billy Ray Snapper in Rob Zombie’s Devils Rejects, alongside show guest Danny Trejo as the “Unholy Two”. DDP is also the innovator of DDP yoga, a fitness program that has changed the lives of many people for the better, and can be found at http://ddpyoga.com/

We are extremely proud to have both legends join us for Shock Pop Comiccon on February 13-15 2015 at the Greater Fort Lauderdale Broward County Convention Center
