There was a chance FOX could have chosen to not renew a fourth season of Bob's Burgers. If that had happened the upcoming Bob's Burgers live show at the Barrymore Theatre on November 1 might have been a less celebratory affair with the audience comforting the voice actors in attendance. Thankfully, with today's news the FOX is not only renewing the cartoon, but is also in "love" with the cartoon, the voice actors can entertain without being distracted by the necessity of pondering the future of their careers.
Bob's Burgers Live will feature Jon Benjamin, Dan Mintz, Eugene Mirman, John Roberts, and Kristin Schaal performing scenes from the show. Attendees will also see exclusive previews of unreleased episodes. Doors at 6 p.m. with the show starting at 7 p.m. Tickets are available through the Barrymore website.
If you aren't familiar with Bob's Burgers here's a description.
The series follows the ups and downs of BOB (H. Jon Benjamin), who runs Bob’s Burgers with the help of his wife and their three kids. Bob has big ideas about burgers, but his family falls short on service and sophistication. Despite the greasy counters, lousy location and dearth of customers, Bob and his family are determined to make every “Grand Re-Re-Re-opening” a success.
Bob’s wife, LINDA (John Roberts), stands by her man, though she’s easily distracted. Their eldest daughter, 13-year-old TINA (Dan Mintz), has minimal social skills and is a hopeless romantic with a thing for zombies. Middle child GENE (Eugene Mirman), the only boy in the family, is an aspiring musician with a thirst for life and a hunger for food. LOUISE (Kristen Schaal) is the bunny ears-wearing youngest daughter with an off-kilter sense of humor that makes her somewhat of a liability in the kitchen - and with the public.
