For the first time, Adult Swim‘s open-air roadshow is coming to New York City. Since 2015, the Turner network, which boasts such series as Rick and Morty, Squidbillies, Robot Chicken, and The Eric Andre Show, has been hitting the road during the warm weather months to spread good cheer and get fans hyped for their programming. Originally dubbed the Adult Swim Drive-In, for 2017 the tour has a sprucy new title: Adult Swim on the Green. Earlier this summer, the tour made stops out West, and come September it heads back out to cover some ground in the East, including visits to Washington, DC, Philadelphia, Boston, and Socrates Sculpture Park in Queens. It’s no coincidence that the New York City stop, which is the last of the tour, takes place a few days ahead of New York Comic Con. For a complete list of tour dates see below.
What can you expect at one of Adult Swim’s outdoor “on the green” extravaganzas? Fans will find games, food trucks, exclusive Adult Swim freebies, and “Things You’ve Never Seen”, a free screening featuring specials, pilots and episodes of new shows, projected on a massive LED wall under the stars. The parties, which are 18+, are technically free, but to secure your spot you need to buy a $5 concession voucher. These vouchers are good towards Adult Swim concessions only and are not valid for food truck purchases.
In other Adult Swim news, Tim & Eric’s 10-year anniversary comedy show tour is just about wrapping up, but the guys (Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim) have one more thing up their sleeve to celebrate, a half-hour special entitled Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!
