Adult Swim Presents: Aqua Teen Hunger Force Live Plus Also Some Squidbillies Stuff Live

Aqua Teen's Dave Willis and Dana Snyder embark on full-blown tour starting April 15

Brace yourselves as Dave Willis, co-creator of Aqua Teen Hunger Force and the voice of Meatwad and Carl, and Dana Snyder, the voice of Master Shake, join forces and hit the road for a nationwide live tour beginning in Dallas, TX on April 15. This is the first major Aqua Teen Hunger Force live tour after successful live performances last year in Austin and Chicago.

Starring Dave and Dana, the comedy variety show brings to life the characters from Aqua Teen Hunger Force, one of Adult Swim's most popular original series that features Master Shake, a sadistic and lazy milkshake, Frylock, a floating box of fries, and Meatwad, a lovable ball of meat. Mixing clips from upcoming episodes, live music from their latest album, Have Yourself a Meaty Little Christmas, along with skits featuring both Aqua Teen and Squidbillies characters, the live show includes Meatwad and Master Shake onstage (through the puppet wizardry of a former Jim Henson designer James Wojtal). Granny from the Adult Swim hit, Squidbillies - also co-created by Willis - joins the live cast as well. In addition, short comedy films, available only at the live shows, and free Adult Swim junk, round out the show.

The Aqua Teen's hairy obnoxious neighbor Carl appears as well to play air guitar and offer a unique "regional beef" targeting each city. Dave and Dana also judge a "Show Us Your Meatwad Competition," record voicemail messages, help students with Women's and Gender Studies papers, lecture on the world of entertainment and internet media and answer questions with completely unrelated responses.

Tickets are on sale now through Ticketmaster and local outlets listed on the Aqua Teen Hunger Force Live site: athflive.com.
