Stand-up comedian and radio host Brian Babylon will be joining the cast of A Klingon Christmas Carol that evening on stage. He will be appearing in a special role as a Klingon at veSIwIq’s (Fezziwig’s) party.
“Brian has been a huge supporter of the show since we first brought it to Chicago,” reported Commedia Beauregard Artistic Director Christopher Kidder-Mostrom. “He’s going to be a great Klingon warrior!”
Babylon is the first of the 2012 guest stars to be announced. He will don ridges and speak in tlhIngan Hol, the language of Star Trek‘s Klingon race.
Babylon has been garnering national attention with his stand-up comedy act and through his appearances on the panel of Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me! the NPR news quiz on National Public Radio (produced by Chicago’s own WBEZ). Brian also helps Chicagoans get their morning started right on WBEZ’s sister station Vocalo.org (89.5 FM) every Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. – 10 a.m.
