Lee Pace!!

At Vulture Festival, we'll find out some of these things in a conversation with cast members Adam Pally, Casey Wilson, and Zachary Knighton and executive producers David Caspe and Jonathan Groff.
  • Adam Pally and Jon Gabrus Eat Some. Drink Some. See Some Sh*t. Recover: 101 Places to Party Before You Die's Adam Pally and Jon Gabrus have a really fun idea for a Vulture Festival event, but we're not allowed to promote certain partying-related activities — so for now we're going to be coy about it.

As the title suggests, it will involve eating some delicious bites, drinking some potent drinks, taking in some “theater,” and getting massages or mani-pedis onstage.

With his career spanning 50 years as an actor, producer, and director, there is simply no one more qualified to teach you the art of emoting at the Hollywood Roosevelt this weekend. Students and audience members will come away from this course with a newfound appreciation for the work that goes into making hapless attorneys like Barry Zuckerkorn, icons like the Fonz, and, of course, beleaguered acting teachers like Gene Cousineau.

Expect controversial guests, depraved segments, and shocking surprises that will make you question everything.
