, California, USA March 18 - May 27, 2007 The Comic Strip Network today announced that select comic strips, starting with Darren Jones' MOSTLY HEADS, will be part of the live cartoon improv comedy show Cartoon Overlord. Using a proprietary videogame engine created in Dark Basic, actors performing to a live audience at ACME Comedy Theatre in Hollywood will drive cartoon characters using videogame controllers as they improvise comedy sketches on stage and output the show as glorious HDTV cartoons. The Cartoon Overlord is voiced by ACME Comedy Theatre veteran Joseph Limbaugh. The cast and enslaved minions of the Cartoon Overlord include veteran comedy actors who've appeared on THE TONIGHT SHOW WITH JAY LENO; in motion pictures such as SIDEWAYS; and in TV shows such as CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM, THAT '70S SHOW, SCRUBS, LAS VEGAS and JOAN OF ARCADIA. Cartoon Overlord features the improv voice talents of Bob Bendick, Robert Covarrubias, Dave Cox, Brian Michael Jones, Ethan Karson, Porter Kelly, Jordan Krain, Brian Lohmann, Chris MacKenzie, Tara Ochs, Robyn Simms, Brian Spillane, Craig Tollisfson, Cory Rouse, and Henry Watkins. Each week Cartoon Overlord will feature a guest cartoonist drawing an entire cartoon live, a comic strip character from the Comic Strip Network (with artists from around the world), and even a competition for independent artists who want to submit artwork to be included in the show. Tickets to attend the live show are $12 or, $10 if you submit art to be animated before 8:00 pm. Cartoon Overlord has a two-month engagement, Sunday nights at 8:00 pm. No show on April 22.
