I love NTSF:SD:SUV::, the crime procedural spoof on Adult Swim. It's the smartest dumb hilarity you'll ever see, starring some of your very favorite comedians: Paul Scheer, Martin Starr, June Diane Raphael, Brandon Johnson, Rob Riggle and lots of other funny faces that pop up throughout the series. Also, the title stands for National Terrorism Strike Force: San Diego: Sport Utility Vehicle::, and if you don't think that's funny, then let's not be friends.
So I'm crazy excited that the Drafthouse is partnering with ATX Television Festival to bring a mini-marathon of the show to Austin next month. I'll let programmer John Gross take it from here:
Buckle up, because we’ve partnered with ATX Television Festival to bring you an evening of ridiculous police procedural mocking, filled with crime-lab robots, swoopy hair and overall high-stakes comedy! Yes, take off your sunglasses and put on yet another pair of sunglasses because the best ghost-whispering/crime-scene-investigating/Jack-Bauering satire of all time and the wild minds behind it are coming to the Alamo Ritz with NTSF:SD:SUV:: !!
Join Paul Scheer, Martin Starr, June Diane Raphael, Brandon Johnson and special guests as they share their favorite episodes of NTSF:SD:SUV:: plus advance treats from the upcoming 3rd season as well as exclusive first looks at 2 new pilots that were created by the NTSF team that have never before been seen. By anyone! We'll also be sneaking a peak at the brand new ARSHEERIO PAUL SHOW and a few never before seen sketches from HUMAN GIANT! Trust us when we say that you will not want to miss this show…unless you’re a terrorist.
We can’t wait to reunite with past Alamo special guests Paul Scheer (who gave a sneak peak of NTSF season 2 at last year’s Ultimate CHILDRENS HOSPITAL Marathon) Martin Starr (who has a cot reserved for him upstairs at the Ritz) and look forward to gushing to June Diane Raphael about BURNING LOVE Season 2 and Brandon Johnson about his role as Raaaaaaaanddy’s hype-man DJ Ol' Youngin! The absurd characters they each play on NATIONAL TERRORISM STRIKE FORCE: SAN DIEGO: SPORT UTILITY VEHICLE:: (please observe the double colon) are American post-modern acting treasures. We are so pleased they are joining ATX Television Festival and the Alamo Drafthouse for this extraordinary Friday evening on June 7th.
The cast and creators of the show will provide the Q+A of a lifetime while showing the BEST and NEWEST episodes of the top show about suicide bombing attempts, alternate dimension existential threats, smart phone cyber attacks, and silly wigs. Our pals at Adult Swim were kind enough to provide goodies for anyone who has a counter-terrorist cosplay bone in the their bodies- so dress up as your favorite characters and you will be rewarded! Your ticket also gets you into a special after-party at the lovely Stephen F Austin hotel with the cast!
Having attended the Party Down, Burning Love and Childrens Hospital marathons, I can tell you that these things are always an insane blast, so make sure you buy your tickets! They're only 25 bucks and you can get them here.
And go here to nab your badge for ATX Fest. I'll be covering this marathon and lots more goodness for the site (including the My So-Called Life cast reunion!), so be on the lookout.
