If you've ever had a burning desire to see Dr. Spaceman and Lucille Bluth launch swag into a crowd of people with T-shirt cannons while Kenny Loggins blares over a PA system, have I got news for you. Word just came in over the wire that Archer Live, a touring show featuring the cast of FX's hilarious animated spy-spoof Archer, will descend upon the Ryman Auditorium on June 21.
Not unlike Portlandia, which brought a live variety show to Marathon Music Works last year, Archer Live is a weird hodgepodge of Archer fan-service, including a staged script reading, trivia games, impression contests, exclusive clips and, yes, T-shirts fired out of a cannon. Along for the ride at the Nashville show are stars H. Jon Benjamin, Aisha Tyler, Chris Parnell, Lucky Yates, Amber Nash and producer Matt Thompson.
Archer centers around Sterling Archer (Benjamin), who is basically an even more drunk James Bond, working for an intelligence agency headed by his own mother (Jessica Walter). You know how It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia squeezes all of its comedy out of how terrible its characters are? That's Archer, except with more explosions and gunfire. I can only assume that there will be fewer explosions and gunfire at the Ryman.
Tickets range from $39.75 to $49.75 and go on-sale Friday, April 12, at 10 a.m.
