The first African Comic Convention is almost due (okay, it’s only in September, but we’re excited) and Reed Exhibitions Africa has just announced the addition of Kevin Sussman — the quirky comic bookstore owner Stuart Bloom in Big Bang Theory — to their list of celebrity guests attending Comic Con Africa 2018.
After seeing this strange comic store-dweller interacting with his geeky counterparts, many have found solace in being outcasts. If you’re not quite up to date on Kevin’s repertoire, he is best known for his recurring roles as Stuart in the geek-culture hit Big Bang Theory and as Walter in comedy-drama Ugly Betty. He also portrayed Stevie in the 2001 hit film Wet Hot American Summer.
Kevin’s other work includes Sweet Home Alabama, Hitch, Made of Honor, The Coen Brothers’ flick Burn After Reading, Taking Woodstock and a recurring role on the hit series Weeds. He has also sold projects to Sony, Fox, CBS and Amazon Studios.
Kevin joins forces with Comic Con Africa for their 2018 instalment, which already includes Aquaman’s Jason Momoa, Star Trek’s Rick Worthy and South African comedy ensemble Goliath&Goliath. We’re expecting a few more announcements in the weeks to come.
Comic Con Africa will be held from 14 to 16 September 2018 at the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit & International Convention Centre. Make sure to secure your tickets as they are limited. We know you need to get a picture of yourself (or your boyfriend or girlfriend) with Jason Momoa.
