The newest edition to the Star Wars franchise won’t hit theaters until Christmas, but on May 1st, fans can get their fix of the space opera when Does This Hold Up? takes on A New Hope.
The local podcast will celebrate their 100th show with a live extravaganza focused around the iconic 1977 film. Written and directed by George Lucas, the sci-fi classic introduced the battle between the Empire and the Rebel Alliance, and inspired enough media, merchandise, and nerd veneration to fill an entire galaxy.
The Star Wars Mega Super Show will take place at 8 p.m. at the Arcade Comedy Theater, and feature commentary by area comedians Ryan Thompson, Alex Stypula, and Travis Walling, as well as games and prize giveaways hosted by Gio Attisano (Lust and Loathing) and Ed Bailey and Day Bracey (Drinking Partners). Tickets are $10 and are available for purchase at Showclix or at the door. This event is BYOB.
