FX Networks capped off the first day of San Diego Comic-Con with a special one-night only performance of the famed touring show Archer Live! aboard the Inspiration Hornblower yacht featuring special guest, Mr. Robot star Christian Slater. The deep dive into the universe of the beloved, Emmy®-nominated animated spy/P.I. comedy Archer featured cast members H. Jon Benjamin (Sterling Archer), Aisha Tyler (Lana Kane), Judy Greer (Cheryl Tunt), Chris Parnell (Cyril Figgis), Amber Nash (Pam Poovey), Lucky Yates (Krieger), series creator/executive producer Adam Reed (Ray Gillette) and executive producer Matt Thompson. Beloved series matriarch Jessica Walter (Malory Archer) made a surprise cameo toward the end of the reading of the popular season six episode, “Vision Quest.” Slater was also a surprise last minute addition to read the episode’s stage direction.
Sponsored by the pioneering cloud-based live TV service, PlayStation™Vue, the Archer Live experience allowed fans to enjoy live entertainment, food, drinks, giveaways, a photo booth and lounge while docked at the marina. On Saturday, July 23, FX will host a special re-broadcast of Archer Live! at the FXHibition space as part of a special “silent disco” featuring light up headphones, setting the park aglow for a late night screening. The first 300 people who arrive will receive an Archer 4-in-1 blanket.
