Seth MacFarlane, the creator of television’s popular animated series Family Guy and American Dad!, is an Emmy award-winning comedian, singer, animator, screenwriter, producer, actor, voice actor and composer. He’s hip, creative, intellectual, has made the dysfunctional American family hilarious for millions, and will be appearing at The Richard and Karen Carpenter Performing Arts Center for one night only – Saturday, February 28 at 8:00pm – as part of the 2008/09 Wit and Wisdom Series.
Seth MacFarlane has developed a wide fan base for his animation with an edge. In fact, thanks to the support of his devoted fans, Family Guy has been resurrected twice from cancellation by 20th Century Fox TV. His fans have also made him an internet sensation. When his animated cartoon web series, Seth MacFarlane's Cavalcade of Cartoon Comedy, premiered on his YouTube channel, SethComedy in September 2008, it reached over 3 million video views in just two days. A recent deal signed with The Fox Broadcasting Company has made MacFarlane the highest-paid television writer and producer in history. His animated television series are produced through his company, Fuzzy Door Productions.
In this exclusive engagement at the Carpenter Performing Arts Center, MacFarlane takes audiences inside his thought process to provide insight into some of the most innovative and raucous television programming. MacFarlane provides the voices of many of his characters including Peter Griffin, Stewie Griffin, Glenn Quagmire and Brian, the dog who loves martinis. This evening will be an uproarious behind-the-scenes peek at everything from the writers’ many neuroses to footage from an episode of Family Guy that 20th Century Fox TV refused to air.
