DnD’er and Groundlings Improvisor, Matt Buchholtz from the popular Crit Juice podcast will be in attendance.
Matt drinks a lot of coffee. A lot. He’s a comedy writer, graphic designer, and gaming enthusiast hybrid class with several points into acting. He has studied at the University of Washington, Groundlings Theatre, and Upright Citizens Brigade. Proud founder of Crit Juice, Matt reprises his role every podcast as the stodgy and stonefaced Doc Keratin, long-tooth shifter of Dol Dorn. Keep your eyes open for Matt in a new Odenkirk project as well as his first feature, The Black Maria.
Crit Juice, is a podcast following professional actors & comedians playing Dungeons and Dragons while under the influence. The cast also puts on live shows from time to time at the Groundlings theater in Hollywood. Definitely worth following if you are a fan of gaming and comedy. Join Matt Buchholtz along with a few of his crew including Daniel Acker, Handsome Gary Soldati, Amy Vorpahl, and Elko Weaver.
Kelly Boardman and the cast of Under The Table, one of the newest geeky board game shows under theStream.TV umbrella will be in attendance.
“Under The Table” is a Tabletop Boardgaming show. Each episode features a new tabletop game, theme, special guest, and exciting original cocktail based on them. One sober host desperately tries to push the game along, as everyone else ends up Under the Table!
- Host: Xander Jeanneret – You may recognize Xander from the second season of TBS’ King of the Nerds! Xander brings all of his goofy charm to the table, and loves every minute of it!
- Host: Kevin Becker – Kevin is the “Sober Host” of the show, and manages to push the rest of the group through the various games. With his quick wit, however, he’ll be sure to leave you in stitches!
- Host: Ryan Shrewsbury – Alcohol cannot dull the sharp tongue of comedian and writer Ryan. He’ll cut you apart with his jokes, but then glue you back together with his big heart. (Then smash you to pieces again)
- Host: Ben Thomas – The “Rules Master” Ben is a stunt performer. He’ll knock you out with his one-two punch of competitive gameplay and strategy!
- Host: Kelly Boardman – Kelly is the sweetheart of the group, and the resident mixologist. You’ll fall in love with her quirky personality as she brews her way to victory!
