Seth MacFarlane and the cast of American Dad! appear on Wednesday, September 21 at 7:00PM!
Good morning, USA! The animated Smiths of 43 Cherry Lane, Langley Falls, Virginia, led by patriarch Stan Smith, a rabid but clueless CIA agent, are just your typical American brood: devoted wife, dorky son, political-activist daughter, plus a sardonic alien and an anthropomorphic goldfish with the brain of a German Olympian—understanding of course that they inhabit the twisted terrain of Seth MacFarlane, creator of Family Guy, and two former writers from that show, Mike Barker and Matt Weitzman. Blending satire with good old-fashioned (and not) family comedy, American Dad! has been described by MacFarlane as “sort of a Family Guy meets All in the Family kind of show.” Whatever it is, it’s working; American Dad! is a legit cult hit about to embark on its seventh season on Fox. Join us for a preview screening and chat with the voice cast and creative team.

CHRIS HARDWICK TO MODERATE ELIZA DUSHKU AND TAHMOH PENIKETT PANEL AT C2E2
Popular Host of G4 TV’s Web Soup Takes Center Stage
Norwalk, CT, March 4, 2011: Chris Hardwick, a popular host who makes frequent appearances on the Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson, and who is currently the producer and host for the Nerdist Podcast as well as a host on G4’s Web Soup and a reviewer on G4’s Attack of the Show, will be conducting a Q & A with Eliza Dushku and Tahmoh Penikett at the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo (C2E2). As previously announced, both Ms. Dushku and Mr. Penikett, the stars of Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse, will be at C2E2 on Saturday, March 19 and Sunday, March 20 where they will be signing both days, as well as participating in the Q & A session on Saturday, March 19, 2:15pm – 3:15pm in the IGN Theater. Mr. Hardwick, who will be leading the panel discussion, intends to talk extensively to both Dushku and Penikett about their experiences on Dollhouse as well as talk about other experiences which have shaped their careers.
Commenting on the prospect of appearing at C2E2, Chris Hardwick notes: “I am very pleased that C2E2 has fallen for my insidious plan of procuring my services as a panel moderator for the delightful humans known as Eliza Dushku and Tahmoh Penikett in order to strong-arm a weekend badge to the expo. Bwah-ha-ha-HAAAAAAAAA, and dare I add an additional “Mwah!”
Aside from his presence on stage with Eliza Dushku and Tahmoh Penikett, Chris will also be meeting and greeting his own fans. He will be autographing on Friday, March 18, 2:00pm – 3:00pm, at Table 3 on the show floor in the Autographing Area.
The Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo is a major pop culture event which was launched last year and which is owned and operated by ReedPOP, which also organizes New York Comic Con (NYCC). C2E2 will take place March 18 – 20, 2011 in the West Hall of the McCormick Place Convention Center. Other notable panels which will be taking place over the course of the weekend include: Food and Comics (Friday, March 18), China Mieville Spotlight (Saturday, March 19), The Walking Dead Q & A (Saturday, March 19), True Blood Q & A (Saturday, March 19), The Vampire Diaries Video Presentation and Q&A (Saturday, March 19), Chuck Video Presentation and Q&A (Saturday, March 19), Marvel: Cup O’ Joe (Saturday, March 19), and Garth Ennis Spotlight (Sunday, March 20), to name just a very few! Full and extensive details about panels, screenings and guest appearances at C2E2 are available at:
ABOUT CHRIS HARDWICK: Chris Hardwick is a stand-up comic and supreme overlord of Nerdist Industries, which is responsible for the popular Nerdist Podcast, the nerdist.com portal, and a real-life book “The Nerdist Way,” to be released in November of 2011 through Penguin. In April, NI will move its headquarters to the back of Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles, because the structural integrity of what was once and old hardware store would help it fare well in an apocalypse.
