With excitement over Comic-Con at peak levels thanks to things like Nerdist Laser Tag, the Her Universe Fashion Show, and a sweet, sweet bust of Star Wars porcine pilot Porkins, it’s difficult to imagine how your body could possibly sustain more good news without sending you into some sort of bliss-induced anaphylactic shock. Well, grab your EpiPens because we’ve got a doozy of an announcement for those of you who have been wondering who would be appearing on the highly anticipated editions of the Nerdist Podcast Live at the Balboa Theatre at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.

Two shows, one podcast. No, it’s not a gross Internet video; it’s just going to be a double whammy of awesome live editions of the Nerdist Podcast with Chris Hardwick, Matt Mira, Jonah Ray, and special guests! As mentioned above, the 7:30 PM showing will feature The Hobbit‘s Evangeline Lilly and Guardians of the Galaxy‘s Michael Rooker for what is sure to be one of the most entertaining hours of your life. Then, if you were lucky enough to grab a ticket for the 10:30PM show, you’ll be leaping off the top turnbuckle into a ring of unadulterated fun with CM Punk. Just be sure to proofread your quemments because we all know what CM Punk thinks of poor grammar.
You can snag tickets for the 7:30 PM show here. In the meantime, why not prepare yourself to enjoy your burrito down at SDCC by listening to last year’s episode with special guest Matt Smith, and the legendarily NSFW edition from 2012 with Gary Dell’Abate and John Barrowman.
