Jarrod Fairclough – Our old pal Patrick Cotnoir is producing one of the weirder live events we’ve ever heard of for New York Comic Con, but one that sounds hilarious none the less. Regular UCB show The George Lucas Show is doing a live panel during the convention, and one of the special guests is Sonia Manzano, aka Maria from Sesame Street!
In the show, comedians Connor Ratliff and Griffin Newman pretend to be Star Wars creator George Lucas and his sidekick Watto respectively, hosting their very own talk show with all sorts of celebrity guests, including Sonia. Also in attendance for this show is Travis McElroy from the beloved podcast My Brother, My Brother and Me, and voice actress Grey DeLisle.
The show kicks off at 7:45pm on Friday 5th October, in Room 1A24 at the Javits Center. You can book tickets by heading to the NYCC site!
