I hope some of you out there were able to make it to San Diego Comic Con this year. Thanks to all who turned out to the Adam West, Batman and Family Guy appearances! It gets bigger every year and this time was really special what with the 45th anniversary of the classic Batman series, and the reunion of Adam, Burt Ward and Yvonne Craig. If you missed it, check out some of the great press from the convention, including interviews!

Adam is the voice of the new Hebrew National hot dogs campaign from ad agency SapientNitro and directed by Jeremy Konner of the HBO series Funny Or Die Presents. “If it were any more beefy, your mind would literally be blown…kablamy.” Check out two of the new spots below.
At the CBS Studios in Studio City, I did an on-camera interview with regards to THE FAMILY GUY for FOX Promotions. All went well and the writers and producers there were all a very clever guys. They seem to ‘understand’ my humor. The NBC pilot that I did a few years back, titled, LOOKWELL was always mentioned by these talented young guys. We all laughed as the pilot gags were remembered. About a week later I get a call from my agent saying the same talented writers and producers want to do a series of sketches on what Adam West is watching on the FOX Network. Once I read the inventive scripts I knew I should do these clever, yet very offbeat sketches. We filmed them all within an eight hour day….starting around 11 ayem until 7pm….complete with set props and costume changes. The crew went from one sketch to another. It was just that fast. I was very pleased with the outcome. And from my e-mails so are many of you. Bat wishes, ADAM WEST
Here’s a little gem we came across on the web! Lookwell was a TV series pilot created in the early 90’s by Robert Smigel and Conan O’Brian that starred Adam West as Lookwell, an ex-TV detective with continued delusions of crime-fighting. The show never got picked up, which is truly a shame because it’s hilarious!
