NEW YORK, June 29, 2015 - Comedy Central is heading to Comic-Con with a plethora of events. It kicks off with panels in the Indigo Ballroom at the Hilton Bayfront on Thursday, July 9 starting with the upcoming animated series "Moonbeam City" (moderator Scott Aukerman, star and Producer Rob Lowe, series creator and Executive Producer Scott Gairdner, Executive Producer Tommy Blacha, Executive Producer Richie Schwartz) from 4:00-5:00 p.m. The evening continues with back-to-back panels from 6:00-7:30 p.m. featuring "Drunk History" (moderator Paul F.

Comedy Central's no-badge-required, free and open to the public event, #ComedyCentralCon will take place from 11:00 a.m.-8:00 p.m. on Friday, July 10 and Saturday, July 11 at The San Diego Wine & Culinary Center (200 Harbor Dr. #120) directly across from the Convention Center. #ComedyCentralCon will feature the following: a 9-Hole Mini Golf course featuring a variety of the brand's series including "Broad City," "Review," "Key & Peele," "@Midnight with Chris Hardwick," "Workaholics," "Inside Amy Schumer" - and a first look at some new and never-before-seen franchises such as "Another Period," "Why?

Also, fans at #ComedyCentralCon can snap a virtual pic in the Comedy Central GIF photo booth with the stars of "Workaholics," "Key & Peele," "Broad City," "Why? With Hannibal Buress," "Another Period," and "Moonbeam City;" get dizzy with "Drunk History" in a 360 photo booth experience; and spin a prize wheel to win limited edition Comedy Central collectibles. And to top it all off, some of the stars will be stopping by #ComedyCentralCon to meet fans and sign autographs.

For Comedy Central's new turn-of-the-century franchise "Another Period" Comedy Central is kicking it old school and giving Comic-Con go-ers free rides in Old Tyme vehicles from Thursday, July 9 - Sunday, July 12 from 11:00 a.m.-5:00p.m. . Fans can flag down the vintage cars and enjoy a free ride to their destination while living like the original ballers did and bumping to some hip-hop jams along the way. Wait. Can't catch a car? No worries! Comic-Con fans will also have the opportunity to get carried away with "Another Period's" Original Lift from Thursday, July 9 - Saturday, July 11 from 11:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. Butlers will be carrying participants for free around downtown San Diego and pampering them in swanky chaise lounge chairs. Walking is so overrated anyway.

On Friday, July 10, "The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail," hosted as always by Jonah Ray and Kumail Nanjiani, will be taking their uber popular Los Angeles stand-up show to Comic-Con with a free performance at The American Comedy Co. on 818 6th Ave at 7:30 p.m. "The Meltdown" is in its second season on Comedy Central with new episodes airing on Tuesdays at 12:30 a.m. ET/PT. Based on the live show which takes place in the back of Meltdown Comics in LA, Ray and Nanjiani welcome the biggest names in comedy as they experiment with new bits onstage and hang out backstage.

Thursday, July 9: "Moonbeam City" panel (Indigo Ballroom at the Hilton Bayfront Hotel)

4:00-5:00 p.m. "Moonbeam City" is an absurdist, retro-futuristic 80s cop extravaganza. Comedy Central's new animated series follows Dazzle Novak (voiced by Rob Lowe), a handsome, idiotic detective who commits more crimes than most criminals. His sexy, tyrannical chief Pizzaz Miller (Elizabeth Banks) won't get off his back. His obnoxious rival Rad Cunningham (Will Forte) will stop at nothing to destroy him. Dazzle must team up with the city's only competent police officer, Chrysalis Tate (Kate Mara), to protect their beloved, neon-soaked metropolis. "Moonbeam City" premieres on Wednesday, September 16 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT following the 19th season premiere of "South Park." The panel will be moderated by Scott Aukerman and include series star and Producer Rob Lowe, series creator and Executive Producer Scott Gairdner, Executive Producer Tommy Blacha and Executive Producer Richie Schwartz.

Thursday, July 9: Comedy Central Presents "Drunk History" and "Another Period" panel (Indigo Ballroom at the Hilton Bayfront Hotel)

6:00-6:45 p.m. Come learn about the history of "Drunk History!" Derek Waters (co-creator, host, Director) and Jeremy Konner (co-creator, Director) will walk fans through how this historically accurate, yet slightly slurred show, works to portray little-known events and figures in history from the perspective of an intoxicated narrator. From humble beginnings as a digital series to two seasons on Comedy Central, with the third season set to premiere on September 1 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT, Derek and Jeremy have plenty of stories to tell about the making of the show. The panel includes an exclusive sneak peek at the upcoming new season, a Q&A and plenty more fun and debauchery as only "Drunk History" can create! The panel is moderated by Paul F. Tompkins and includes Derek Waters, Jeremy Konner, SNL's Taran Killam (who has guest starred on all three seasons of the show) and series recurring guest star Paget Brewster.

6:45-7:30 p.m. The party continues with "Another Period," the original out of touch reality family in this turn-of-the-century historical and satirical scripted series that follows the insanely ridiculous and debaucherous life of the Bellacourts, who have more servants than relatives and whose days are filled with money, sex, drugs and more money. "Another Period" is co-created by Natasha Leggero and Riki Lindhome, executive produced by Ben Stiller's Red Hour and airs Tuesdays at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT. The panel will include stars and Executive Producers Natasha Leggero and Riki Lindhome, series co-stars Armen Weitzman, Michael Ian Black, Paget Brewster and Executive Producer and Director Jeremy Konner.
