Tasty News: Comedy Central Brigs South Park & Crank Yankers to Comic-Con 2019
This Thursday, July 18th San Diego Comic-Con fans can get their fill of a most beloved animated comedy franchise, as well as a very much revived puppet-filled favorite. Yes, get psyched for some amazing South Park and Crank Yankers events, kids. The Comedy Central festivities will begin with a South Park Bigger Longer Uncut mini-golf activation at the San Diego Wine & Culinary Center. The 9-hole golf course will be an homage to the 90s adult animated musical comedy film with themed holes (those two words don’t sound weird at all) celebrating the 20th anniversary of the film. Additionally, there will be four limited-edition South Park t-shirts that will be available each for fan to purchase (a different shirt available each day July 18 – July 21st).
For those willing to brave inside the Convention Center, head on over to Booth #3729 for an immersive experience where fans can get an exclusive first listen to crank calls from the new season. At 6:45 pm in the Indigo Ballroom at the Hilton Bayfront, there will be a Crank Yankers panel featuring executive producer and showrunner Jonathan Kimmel, voice talent David Alan Grier, Chelsea Peretti, and Bobby Moynihan, and production designer Gary Kordan with moderator Brian Posehn. The panel will cover never-before-seen clips from the new season, and behind-the-scenes tales of the series creation.
