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!

OR – Lady Killer Signing

lk-tfaw

Joëlle Jones, Jamie S. Rich, and Laura Allred appear at Things From Another World on Wednesday, January 7, 2015 from 7:00 – 10:00 PM!

Press Release:

1960s homemaker or ruthless killer-for-hire? Who says you can’t be both? Things From Another World is excited to announce that we are welcoming the creators behind the Lady Killer comic book series for a signing at our Portland TFAW location. Join Joëlle Jones (Helheim, Troublemaker), Jamie S. Rich (Spell Checkers, Madame Frankenstein), and Laura Allred (Madman, I Zombie) as they debut their newest comic book series, Lady Killer, published by Dark Horse Comics. Complimentary food and drinks will be provided as well as beer and a specialty cocktail for those 21+ in keeping with a 1960s cocktail party theme. Attendees are encouraged to dress in their best ’60s party attire, though it is not required.

Josie Schuller is a picture-perfect homemaker, wife, and mother–but she’s also a ruthless, efficient killer-for-hire. A brand-new original comic book series that combines the wholesome imagery of early 1960s domestic bliss with a tightening web of murder, paranoia, and cold-blooded survival. Mixing together elements of characters like Hannibal Lecter and Betty Draper, Lady Killer is sure to be a great read that is unlike any other comic out there.

Copies of Lady Killer #1 will be available for purchase at the event. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to meet the creators behind this exciting new book and get the first issue signed by the creative team January 7 at the Portland TFAW! Photo ops will be available for those in 1960s attire at the event.

SF – W00tstock Founders’ Night

w00tstock-slider

Adam Savage, Wil Wheaton, and Paul & Storm appear on Thursday, January 22, 2015 from 7:00 – 11:00 PM!

Press Release:

For decades, geeks were ostracized, picked on, laughed at and punished by the sun’s harmful UV rays. But there is only so long that a people can be kept down before they rise up against their oppressors; and, indeed, the dawn of the 21st century has seen the ascendancy of geeks and geek culture.

We now celebrate that rise to power–and let’s face it, nerds pretty much run everything now–with w00tstock, a special event for geeks of every stripe. Television host/special-effects artist Adam Savage (MythBusters), music-comedy duo Paul and Storm (The Internet, Da Vinci’s Notebook) and author, actor and host of “TableTop” Wil Wheaton present a night of songs, readings, comedy, demonstrations, short films, and other clever widgets born from and dedicated to the enthusiasms, obsessions, trials and joys of geek pride.

This is the dawning of the Age of Geekdom–and its voices will ring true at w00tstock Founders! $35 All Ages
