Last week we had the amazing opportunity of attending Conan's shows at San Diego Comic-Con, LIVE from the Spreckles Theater. One of our favorite moments of the shows, was Conan's cold open when he had the cast of "Game of Thrones" on the show.
Today's episode of the podcast comes to you LIVE from San Diego Comic-Con, with special guests, Rob Kutner and David J. Peterson! We were honored to have these two join us for the show and had such a great time talking with them.
As you may know, Rob is currently a writer for Conan, which was possibly the hottest show in town during Comic-Con. We talked with Rob about writing for Conan and The Daily Show, as well as his comedy sci-fi comic "Shrinkage", and his comedy mini-series "Runaway Brains", that he does with Ken Jennings and Weird Al Yankovic on Howl.fm.

David J. Peterson is the brains behind many of your favorite TV and Film Languages, such as Dothraki in Game of Thrones. It was incredible to talk with David and learn the process of how he develops the languages, what it's like working on the shows, upcoming projects, and David even gave my wife her own Dothraki name.

It's been a rough start for Fox's 'Gambit' movie starring Channing Tatum, but it looks like we finally have a time frame to look forward to!
Fox had previously announced the film wouldn't open in theaters in this year, which some fans took as the film getting the ax. The Hasthtag Show spoke with writer and producer Simon Kinberg at the 2016 Saturn Awards where he stated: " We have a great script on that and hope to shoot that movie at the beginning, or spring, next year.
Either way, we are excited to FINALLY be getting a Gambit moive!
