Holy Drunken Readings, Batman! Fresh off a successful 2019 season, Scripts Gone Wild returns in February 2020 with a debaucherous reading of the first cinematic incarnation of the caped crusader, 1966’s BATMAN starring the late Adam West. Based on the popular television series, it has become a cult classic over the years, and Scripts Gone Wild can’t think of a better way to kick off its 2020 season of readings.
Headlining this POW! ZAP! reading is none other than the great Tom Kenny, known to audiences around the world as the voice of “Spongebob Squarepants” in the popular animated series and subsequent films (including the forthcoming Spongebob Squarepants Movie: Spong on the Run), and from other series like: Rocko’s Modern Life, Mr. Show with Bob and David, Dilbert, The Powerpuff Girls, Dexter’s Laboratory, Johnny Bravo, Captain Lazlo!, Batman: The Brave and the Bold, The Fairly OddParents, Samurai Jack, Adventure Time, American Dad!, Rick and Morty, and many, many more.
Joining Tom for BATMAN ’66 are:
Dana Gould – Actor, writer, and comedian; writer on The Simpsons from 2001-2007; creator of the IFC comedy series, Stan Against Evil; host of The Dana Gould Hour podcast.
Ralph Garman – Actor/comedian/co-host of Hollywood Babble-On with Kevin Smith and The Joe Schmo Show; voice artist in 200+ episodes of Family Guy; Jay and Silent Bob Reboot
Clarke Wolfe – Actress best known from the award-winning Satanic Panic and the horror anthology, Deathcember; correspondent and host of the Sending the Wolfe podcast
Malcolm Barrett – Actor best known for his roles as “F.J. Hoover” on Preacher, “Rufus Carlin” on Timeless, “Seth” on The Boys, and “Ted White” on Season 3 of Genius

Aaron LaPlante – Voice over artist known for his work in the recent animated series, Primal; Samurai Jack; Mecard; Baki; Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation
Stepping into the hosting duties for the evening is Scripts Gone Wild favorite, Frank Dietz, who previously hosted readings of Beetlejuice and Zombie Nightmare. “We’re always delighted to have Frank take over hosting duties,” said Scripts Gone Wild founder, Billy Ray Brewton. “It allows me to fade into the background and get drunk for charity like a normal SGWer!”
Scripts Gone Wild is also pleased to welcome a new alcohol sponsor to the mix for the 2020 season, the local L.A. brewery Golden Road Brewing, who will be supplying the readers with just enough intoxication to perform adequately. Returning sponsors include: Mulholland Distilling, a local craft spirits brand located in the heart of downtown Los Angeles; Q Mixers, the premium spirits mixer served everywhere people love great things; Pomp & Whimsy, an exotic and delicious gin liqueur; El Cid on Sunset; and the media sponsor, as always, is Nightmarish Conjurings.
Founded in 2016 at the Chattanooga Film Festival, Scripts Gone Wild is a monthly script reading series where a group of suspecting celebs, filmmakers, and influencers are taken – a movie script and alcohol put in their hands – and chaos ensues! It’s a drinking game – any time a reader flubs a line, misses their cue – THEY DRINK! We even let the audience get in on the action by choosing ‘trigger words’ that only increase the likelihood of the evening getting, well… ‘wild’. Previous readers have included: Joel McHale (Community), Perez Hilton, Tracie Thoms (Cold Case), Diedrich Bader (The Drew Carey Show), and Ross Marquand (The Walking Dead).
SCRIPTS GONE WILD – BATMAN ’66 takes place Thursday February 27th at 8:00pm at El Cid on Sunset located at 4212 Sunset Blvd. Tickets are $20 for VIP SEATING and $10 for GENERAL ADMISSION. Proceeds will benefit a TBD charity. For more information about Scripts Gone Wild, or to purchase tickets, visit www.scriptsgonewild.com.
