Get ready to visit the danger zone, Chicago. The animated troublemakers of FX's spy comedy "Archer" are turning into real live people and coming here in April for the "Archer Live!" Tour.
Producers and the voice stars of the series will do a live reading of classic "Archer" scenes, participate in a moderated discussion and take part in an audience Q&A at the event. Those scheduled to participate include H. Jon Benjamin (Agent Sterling Archer), Aisha Tyler (Agent Lana Kane), Amber Nash (Pam Poovey), Lucky Yates (Krieger) and producer Casey Willis.
"Archer Live!" is set for 8 p.m. April 5 at The Chicago Theatre, 175 N. State St. Reserved tickets [$46.50 and $36.50] go on sale at 10 a.m. March 9 at ticketmaster.com. Tickets also can be purchased at The Chicago Theatre box office or by phone at 800-745-3000.
"Archer" is currently in its fourth season, airing new episodes at 9 p.m. Thursday's on FX, and was recently picked up for a fifth season.
From FX: Archer is an animated, half-hour comedy that revolves around the International Secret Intelligence Service (ISIS) and the lives of its employees. Although their work of espionage, reconnaissance missions, wiretapping and undercover surveillance is daunting and dangerous, every covert operation and global crisis is actually just another excuse for the ISIS staff to undermine, sabotage and betray each other for personal gain.
