The North East Comic Con: THIS SAT @ SUN @ The Shriners Auditorium
On Saturday December 5th and 6th, Gary Sohmers formerly of The Antique Roadshow will be putting on the 2nd annual North East Comic Con at The Shriners Auditorium in Wilmington, MA. The pop culture expo will be stacked with some of the weirdest yet coolest figures in American entertainment. From actors from the past and future, to cosplay, contests and games for the kids the North East Comic Con is going to be mayhem.
I remember going up to The Shriners Auditorium twenty years ago to see the circus and to see rodeos. This event will be just as epic as those events that I saw when I was a kid. The event will have fame of the likes of…
Billy West from old school Batman and now Family Guy & Futurama
Naomi Grossman of American Horror Story
Paris Themmen, which played Mike TV from the original Willy Wonka
Nicholas Brendon of Criminal Minds & Buffy The Vampire Slayer
Butch Patrick from The Munsters
Christopher Judge of Stargate
Mackenzie Lintz of The Hunger Games
Bill Diamond of Fraggle Rock & The Muppet Show
Leah Cevoli of Sabrina the Teenage Bitch on Robot Chicken on Cartoon Network
The North East Comic Con is encouraging people to cosplay the hell out of the convention. Whether it’s an original costume or an icon in pop culture, it doesn’t matter. There will even be a Jessica & Roger Rabbit cosplay contest judged by the author of Roger Rabbit, Gary Wolf and the voice of Roger Rabbit, Charles Fleischer.
There is a voice over workshop -AND- our very own, GeekBeat Radio (Mondays at 10pm- midnight) will be running their own stage of 8 Bit artists performances like Diamond Machine & more. WEMF will be right next door with their booth with a Saturday appearance by Robby Roadsteamer and a Sunday appearance by Pat B of Geek Down (Mondays 9pm- 10pm).
Get to this event! It is THIS FRIDAY and SATURDAY, December 5th and 6th at The Shriners Auditorium in Wilmington, MA. It’s exit 39 off of 93 North. WEMF will be there, will you?
