Clear your schedules on the evening of Saturday, July 11th because the Balboa Theatre is going to get awfully droll. Just how droll will things get? Well, if you thought your Anglophilia had reached peak levels before, you’re going to need an EpiPen full of Vegemite and crumpets because the Nerdist Podcast Live is making its triumphant return to San Diego Comic-Con with a double dose of brilliant British guests. Our fearless leader, Chris Hardwick, took to Twitter last month to announce the first of the two mystery guests for the 7:30PM show at the annual SDCC spectacular:
ANNOUNCEMENT TIME! Our 1st guest for Nerdist Podcast at SDCC on Sat 7/11 is Sir Ben Kingsley! Tix goin’ fast -> http://t.co/OxUjmZeTKE

With amazing roles in Iron Man 3, Gandhi, The Boxtrolls and many more, Sir Ben Kingsley on his own would make for a phenomenal evening of podcasting, but the Balboa Theatre is an awfully big place.
What happens if there’s an emergency situation and someone is forced to shout, “Is there a Doctor in the house?” Don’t worry — we’ve planned for that too because we’ll have Peter Capaldi, the Doctor himself, as the other guest of honor for this unadulterated evening of awesome.
PETER CAPALDI will be our other guest for the 7:30 Nerdist Podcast Live! at SDCC along with Sir Ben Kingsley!!! Holy crap!!! Get the ticket link at FuncomfortableTour.com. See you there!!! Sidenote: yes, this pic is a regram of the one I posted last year at the Doctor Who World Tour BUT IT'S ONE OF MY FAVORITES OKAY
Two shows, one podcast — turn droll for what. I’m not even going to apologize for that last sentence because that’s how incredible this lineup is.
Want to attend in person? Here’s how:
- Buy tickets to the 7:30PM show with the aforementioned dynamic duo.
- Buy tickets to the 10:30PM show with mystery guests who will be announced shortly.
- Laugh your ass off the night before in the same theater for the Funcomfortable Tour show.
Will there be even more epic SDCC announcements? You bet your ass there will, so keep your eyes locked to Nerdist.com for all the latest SDCC goodness as it unfolds. In the meantime, you can prepare your precious earholes for what’s ahead by listening to last year’s live shows with Evangeline Lilly/Michael Rooker and CM Punk.
