The Thrilling Adventure Hour is Nigh + Ticket Giveaway!
It may be less improv and more scripted, but the LA-based staged show & hit podcast, The Thrilling Adventure Hour has world class improvisors in the cast – and guess what? They’re coming to Sydney – and we’ve got a double pass to give away!
When Thrilling Adventure Hour co-creators and writers Ben Acker & Ben Blacker brought together the original WorkJuice Players (Paget Brewster, Marc Evan Jackson, Mark Gagliardi, Hal Lublin, Annie Savage, Craig Cackowski, and Paul F. Tompkins) for the first performance at M Bar in March 2005, they had no idea it would grow into a pop culture phenomenon to capture the attention of fans around the world.
Since 2005, The Thrilling Adventure Hour have performed their show for sold-out houses in San Francisco, New York City, Seattle, Chicago, St. Paul, and San Diego, inspired an Eisner-nominated graphic novel, created cross-over shows with the likes of Wits and Welcome to Night Vale, launched a hit Nerdist web series, and filmed a soon to be released Concert Film – in addition to a new, original 90-minute show every month.
The audio recording of their July 2014 cross-over performance with Welcome to Night Vale captured the #14 album spot on all of iTunes and The Thrilling Adventure Hour Nerdist podcast is a Top 3 podcast under Comedy on iTunes. Truly, they are a genre-based comedy force to be reckoned with.
From May 15-23, The Thrilling Adventure Hour will embark upon a “Down Under Tour” for their fans in Australia and New Zealand with performances in Sydney (May 15-16 as part of The Sydney Comedy Festival), Auckland (May 20) and Wellington (May 22-23). They’ve also added a WorkJuice Improv Experience show May 19 in Auckland as part of The New Zealand Comedy Festival.
Attending cast for the Down Under Tour include Paget Brewster, Paul F. Tompkins, Marc Evan Jackson, Mark Gagliardi, Craig Cackowski, Autumn Reeser, Annie Savage, Hal Lublin, Ben Acker & Ben Blacker – with special guests Molly Quinn (Castle), Janet Varney (Legend of Korra) and Jenny Wade (Hand of God; Reaper) with music from Andy Paley, Jonathan Dinerstein and Becky Ward.
