Would you like to be suspended and subsequently thrilled? For a whole hour (or more)??? If you’re in Los Angeles, you can. And you have been able to for the last six years. On March 5th, The Thrilling Adventure and Supernatural Suspense Hour will present its sixth anniversary show at Largo at the Coronet.
What is The Thrilling Adventure Hour? It’s a monthly stage show done in the style of an old timey radio programme (the type your uncle stays in the car to enjoy while you and your aunt suffer Wal-Mart’s interior). Some of the top names in film, television, and comedy (try Paul F. Tompkins, Busy Phillips, Paget Brewster, Kevin Pollak, and oodles of other folks you’re fond of) get all gussied up and take the stage as the WorkJuice Players, lending their vocal talents to the serialized adventures of Sparks Nevada, Marshal on Mars and Jefferson Reed, Ace American! (complete with commercial “sponsors” like Patriot Brand Cigarettes – “They’re good for your constitution”).
On March 5th, the WorkJuice Players will be joined by Patton Oswalt, Andrew Daly, and Danica McKellar in a show that is certain to induce a sort of laughter-based, blissful belly ache. If you can’t make it to the show (or you’re pouting that you missed past guests like Nathan Fillion and Andy Richter), dry your eyes and ready your q-tips! The Thrilling Adventure Hour can still tickle your eardrums via podcast (here for iTunes and here for weirdos).
Looks like “face made for radio” is no longer an insult. Not so special now, are we, Seacrest?
