Jon Glaser’s ‘Neon Joe, Werewolf Hunter’ back for S2; free premiere party at The Bell House tonight
Jon Glaser's Adult Swim series Neon Joe, Werewolf Hunter returns for it's second season on May 22. If you're unfamiliar with the series, the title gives a good indication of what to expect, as does familiarity with the New York comedian's absurdist ouvre (Delocated, Jon Glaser Loves Gear), but you can watch a trailer for Season 2 below.
For Neon Joe fans in NYC, Glaser is hosting a premiere event tonight (5/19) at The Bell House featuring a screening of two new episodes, a Q&A between Glaser and director/collaborator John Lee, a live performance from Neon Joe & The He-Yumps, giveaways and more. Glaser talked to AM NY about what to expect:
I think it’s actually a cool event, especially if you’re a fan of the show. There’s a lot going on. DC made a comic book last season. ... We got really good artists to do the cover, the interior, the color. And it looked great. Just for myself, it was pretty exciting to have a legit comic made. So they made another comic book which also turned out great. The cover is, I think, especially stunning. It looks really good. This artist named Alex Maleev, his work is quite exceptional. So we’re going to be giving away copies of the comic book to everyone that’s there. Alex is actually going to be there, and he and I are going to be available to sign comics before the show starts. ... There’s going to be a short Q&A with me and John Lee who is the director this season. He and I will do a chat before we screen the first two episodes and then after I’m going to sing with a band in character, which will be — I would imagine — nice and dumb.
