'Adventure Hour' Is A New Take On Old-Time Radio
The creators of The Thrilling Adventure Hour proudly call it “fake radio.” It’s less an homage to old-time radio and more of a clever update. A live monthly performance at Largo, a 200-seat, scruffy-chic Hollywood nightclub is also available as a popular podcast through Nerdist.

The Thrilling Adventure Hour operates on a can’t-miss premise: Comedic takes on pulpy serials from the Golden Age of radio, starring Los Angeles comedy vets (Paul F. Tompkins, Craig Cackowski), Hollywood ringers (Busy Philipps, Paget Brewster), versatile voiceover talent (James Urbaniak, John DiMaggio), and an eager stable of marquee guests.

Personally, I like my laughs served up with a heaping side of robot Martian fist-fights and martini-powered mummy tussles. Ben Acker and Ben Blacker launched this humor-filled love letter to yesteryear’s serial radio shows in Los Angeles in 2005. It has since manifested itself into a popular ongoing stage show and podcast.
