Rabbit Hole with Jay and Rory fills the Wednesday slot famously held for the past six years by The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail, which ended its run in October 2016. Gaston D-L from Meltdown, Inc. says, “The legacy of comedy on Wednesdays runs deep at Meltdown Comics; we have been putting on shows here for ten years now. We couldn’t be happier to have our flagship show be reincarnated with such qualified and familiar names as Jay and Rory. Keep the Wednesday energy alive and come laugh with us again!” The Meltdown Show producer Emily V. Gordon expresses her support for the new show as well: “The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail are collectively stoked for the next chapter of Wednesday nights at Meltdown Comics knowing that Jay Larson and Rory Scovel are at the helm.”

The Cosplay Train Express, the world’s first all immersive pop culture rail experience, aimed at fans looking for that ultimate adventure. As part of an annual trek from Los Angeles to San Diego to celebrate the iconic Grandaddy of comic book conventions, this first-of-its-kind annual rail adventure will offer a limited number of fans the unique opportunity to engage with global celebrities, past and present, while creating the ultimate cosplay future universe along the way. William Kircher, who portrayed the iconic dwarf “Bifur” in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, will be on board to socialize with fans and lead the 4-day celebration as event emcee. Those fortunate to procure these “Golden Rail Passes” are encouraged to brush up on the ancient Dwarvish language before departing on this adventure. Golden Rail Passes are on sale NOW!

“I am excited to be the host of the Cosplay Train Express,” says William Kircher. “When I was told that this was the first annual adventure, I just knew that my participation would be something that cosplay and pop culture fans would enjoy. It should be a lot of fun.” Fan favorites from other movie and TV franchises will also join the rail experience, including Adam West, Julie Newmar, and Burt Ward, with more names from the guest list to be released in the coming weeks.

The Cosplay Train Express includes* roundtrip rail fare, one day in San Diego during Comic-Con International, all-inclusive food and beverage, and a 21+ environment throughout the train, with specialty cocktails and innovative party programming that brings stars and fans together in smaller, more extraordinary settings. The Cosplay Train Express departs daily from Los Angeles, July 21-24, 2016. Quintessential themes will be recreated on board while additional events will be built around each railcar and their defining traits. Fans can choose their adventure from four immersive experiences: The Wizard Express The Sci-fi Universe Lounge TRAXX Celebrity Lounge Heroes vs Villains Lounge

The Cosplay Train Express will give “railers” the chance to become part of the Cosplay Universe throughout their adventure. Staffed by a passionate crew and professional cosplayers dressed in distinctive costumes, each railcar on the private carriages will pay homage to a favorite universe with parties and trivia competitions inspired by pivotal moments in pop culture history.
