Here's comedian Kumail Nanjiani on Conan last night, telling a funny story about a weird thing that happened to him at Comic-Con this year.
This weekend, Seth MacFarlane told the American Dad Comic-Con panel: "I’d be open to making Ted 2." This might have to do with the fact that the film is cleaning up at the box office. After making another $20+ million this weekend, Ted has nearly grossed $160 million domestically in just three weeks. This already puts it as the seventh highest earning R-rated comedy ever. So, yeah, Ted 2 seems like a sure thing, as this is exactly when Hollywood makes sequels. Here's an idea: Ted 2: Ted Goes to a TED Conference (Blammo! [drops microphone]).
To get to the Venture Brothers panel at New York Comic Con 2011, I had to wait in a long line to get to another line, to get to another line, all to get to the main line for admission to the IGN Theater. During the wait, I befriended the suited guy in front of me, who said he’d recently moved to New York from Atlanta. Trying to think of something conversation-y to say, I told him I was surprised that so many people wore costumes when the costume contest wasn’t till Sunday. He smiled at me and said, “You’ve never been to a con before, have you?”
I think the fact that Robot Chicken's Comic-Con photo Tumblr is named Cyborg Turkey is just the bees' knees. Then again, I'm still so asleep, my eyelashes are crusted together, so please enjoy it on your own terms. Take a brief but informative look around RC's live-bloggings from San Diego to discover whether or not Breckin Meyer is sitting on a panel (he is!) and if Seth MacFarlane rolled up in a DeLorean (seems about right.)
