AMC’s “Comic Book Men” & Lloyd Kaufman Team- Up at Wizard World This Weekend in Philadelphia

After an amazing birthday party celebrating the Toxic Avenger‘s 30th Anniversary at Bizarre AC this past weekend, legendary director Lloyd Kaufman and Toxie armed with a fierce team of Tromettes return to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Tromatize the 2014 Wizard World Philadelphia Comic Con.  The Troma Team will be making their official Wizard World headquarters at Booth #826 for the entire duration of the Con and have a juggernaut of exciting events lined up.

On Friday June 20th, 2014 AMC’s “Comic Book Men” and Troma President Lloyd Kaufman team-up for a crowd-interactive Discussion and Q & A at 6:30pm in Room 113. While this is “Comic Book Men” Ming Chen, Bryan Johnson and Michael Zapcic’s inaugural visit to the Wizard World Philadelphia Comic Con, this is not the first time these two super forces have shared a stage. One thing is for sure when Bryan Johnson and Lloyd Kaufman have microphones anything can, and probably will, be said. You do not want to miss this unique experience!

Later that evening, head over to the Playground at the Adrienne Theater for the special One Year Anniversary taping of “Hang On with Aaron Nevins” – the only comedy talk show where the audience is part of the conversation. Lloyd, Toxie, and the Tromettes will join host comedian Aaron Nevins, and writer and performer on NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers, Ben Warheit for an intimate and hysterical sit down. The show begins at 8pm, tickets are just $5.00. Get yours now because this event will sell out.
