Comedy Central Is Taking Over Comic Con: South Park 20, Legends of Chamberlain Heights + More!
Comedy Central is heading to Comic-Con with some very sweet events. There’ll be panels with the creators of Drunk History and the new show Legends of Chamberlain Heights but most exciting of all is the centrepiece of the exhibition: the “South Park 20 Experience”.
To celebrate 20 years of South Park, Comedy Central will be rolling out the “South Park 20 Experience,” which will see fans exploring and immersing themselves in 20 iconic scenes. Visitors can recharge their bodies, minds and devices at a viewing lounge, which will be screening episodes across all seasons of “South Park.”
On the gaming front “The Coon & Friends Experience” will feature real-world items from the highly-anticipated new video game, “South Park: The Fractured But Whole”. Meanwhile 20 unique artists will honour “South Park’s” 20th season with new work that has been curated by world-renowned pop culture artist Ron English. Fans can also visit a retrospective gallery featuring original animation cells from the pilot episode of “South Park.”
Obviously if you’re reading this in Australia, it might be a bit hard to get your sweet buns over to San Diego by the 21st of July, but never fear, we’ll endeavour to get you some sweet clips from the event.
@midnight's Chris Hardwick will also moderate a “South Park 20” panel and discuss the evolution of the series over the last two decades, take questions from fans and provide an exclusive sneak peek of “South Park: The Fractured But Whole”.
Meanwhile Comedy Central’s show The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail is also returning to Comic-Con with their uber popular Los Angeles stand-up show. The party continues with a look at Comedy Central’s newest animated series, “Legends of Chamberlain Heights,” “Legends” mixes comedy and social commentary, centering on three friends navigating through their freshman year in high-school: “Jamal,” “Grover” and “Milk.” The three basketball benchwarmers tackle life with some wins and some losses, but failure doesn’t faze them since they’re legends…even if it’s just in their own minds.
“Legends of Chamberlain Heights” is executive produced by the people behind Bob’s Burgers along with show runner Devon Shepard (Being Mary Jane, House of Lies, Weeds). “The Simpsons” veteran artist Brad Ableson developed the original concept with former UCLA basketball players Quinn Hawking and Josiah Johnson, who used their own legendary bench warming experience to provide the inspiration for the main characters.
