FreakShow

New York freaks out over David Cross

freak showIf you live in New York, you may think that the New York Post is officially off its rocker. Today's cover resembles an extreme tabloid, ala The National Enquirer. It's covered with stories about freaks of nature that are on the Pentagon payroll... but it's all fake. Comedy Central bought fake covers to advertise David Cross' new animated series, Freak Show. The previews for the show make it look like it's a band of freaks who try to be superheroes. Comedy Central is also distributing more than one million copies of a Freak Show comic book written by Cross and co-creator H. Jon Benjamin (the comic is also on the website).

Freak Show debuts tomorrow, October 4th on Comedy Central at 10:30 pm, right after the return of South Park.

The Freak Squad is comprised of a group of circus freaks, each with their own unique power. Tuck and Benny, the siamese twins (voiced by Benjamin and Cross) have the power of separation; the Bearded Clam (Janeane Garofalo) shoots blinding bitch juice; the World's Tallest Nebraskan (Brian Stack, a writer and performer on Late Night with Conan O'Brien) can shrink up to six inches; Primi, the Premature Baby, has the power of pinpoint vomiting; and Log Cabin Republican, the only gay member of the squad, can transform into Burly Bear, a large, hirsute man in S&M garb. Log Cabin Republican is voiced by Jon Glaser, also a writer and performer on Conan.
