Ben Acker and Ben Blacker, creators of the Thrilling Adventure Hour, teamed up with Tim Batt and Guy Montgomery, the creators/hosts of The Worst Idea of All Time
podcast, in which the New Zealand-based comedians watched Grown Ups 2 every week for one year, to bring this one-of-a-kind live show to Los Angeles.
After watching Grown Ups 2 for 50 weeks, Tim and Guy wrote their own version of the movie, with their own brain-addled commentary.
Acker & Blacker produced this live read of that script starring The Thrilling Adventure Hour's WorkJuice Players Busy Philipps (Vice Principals) and Hal Lublin (We Got This
), and TAH friends Kate Micucci (Garfunkel & Oates), Baron Vaughn (Grace & Frankie), Arden Myrin (MadTV), Mark McConville (Superego
), Michael McMillian (True Blood), Jason Ritter (Parenthood), Humphrey Ker (Dymock Watson: Nazi Smasher
), and Melanie Lynskey (Togetherness). Jordan Katz
and the Elements of Style, featuring Eric Kufs
, perform the opening and closing music.
