Attention Staff: The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema and ATX Television Festival is proud to present the ULTIMATE CHILDRENS HOSPITAL MARATHON.
"You know the old joke where the patient says, 'Will I ever be able to play the violin again' and the doctor says, 'Yes.' and the patient says, 'Great, because I've never played before'? Well, your son's heart is failing." - Dr. Glenn Richie
We sincerely love the hilarious and bizarre CHILDRENS HOSPITAL so much we have seizure medication on hand to calm ourselves as we prep for one of the best Saturdays of all time! We’ve got a panel discussion, a limited edition MONDO poster, the opportunity to watch all three seasons back to back and a sweet afterparty! As if that's not enough, stars Rob Corddry, Rob Huebel, Ken Marino, Erinn Hayes, and Executive Producers David Wain and Jonathan Stern will be in attendance, plus all sorts of special extras and secret drop-in guests!
The absurdist Adult Swim show is more than a spoof of hospital dramas, it is a certifiably bonkers, uber-meta, incredibly smart experience that challenges its audience to actively engage in the humor before them. Plus, there are lots of sex jokes. Rob Corddry created CHILDRENS HOSPITAL as a web series during the 2008 writers’ strike. He traded in his DAILY SHOW suit for bloody scrubs and clown makeup and assembled an insane amount of talented comedic actors for the ride. Lucky for us, Adult Swim recognized the glorious brilliance of this surreal satire and has been nourishing its advancement season after season and is gearing up for the premier of the fourth this August! This is a show within a show within a show set in Brazil that breaks fourth walls that SCRUBS could only dream of. Convinced? Get your tickets NOW.
Your ticket includes admission to a special panel discussion with the casts of CHILDRENS HOSPITAL and NTSF:SD:SUV:: at the historic State Theater on Congress on Saturday June 2nd at 12:30pm as part of the first annual ATX Television Festival. This is along the same lines as the panel everyone was talking about after last year’s Comic Con.
The marathon kicks off at the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz at 3pm where our special guests Rob Corddry, Rob Huebel, Ken Marino, Erinn Hayes, and Executive Producers David Wain and Jonathan Stern will walk us through each perfect season of the show and all sorts of other special extras along the way including sneak peaks at upcoming episodes! They’ll answer all your questions about the show, relive the memories with us and maybe... just maybe…create some new ones. "Righteous!"
After 8 hours of gut-busting yuk yuks, your ticket gets you in to an exclusive after party at the Inter-Continental Stephen F. Austin Hotel, where you and your comedy-loving comrades will be able to reminisce about the day’s hard work of sitting and laughing along side some of the biggest stars in television comedy. Who knows- maybe we'll even break into some ol’ clown spirituals!
The ticket for this screening includes an ULTIMATE CHILDRENS HOSPITAL MARATHON Mondo limted edition poster by the fantastic Graham Erwin!
Tickets for this amazing weekend of Michael Cera voiceovers, silly internal monologues, make out sessions with goats, Henry Winkler, and a clown named Mr. Tinklebutton are on sale NOW. Snag yours now on the showpage HERE!
We personally guarantee that you will laugh at least 30 times a minute for 8 hours. Are you clown enough to step up to the challenge?
This marathon event is brought to you in part by the Inter-Continental Stephen F. Austin Hotel. A HUGE thanks to our friends at Adult Swim who have helped make this possible. CHILDRENS HOSPITAL Season 4 premieres on Adult Swim this August!
