LOS ANGELES - Today, independent comic book publisher Lobrau Productions Inc. announced "Toupydoops Live" - a one-of-a-kind staged reading of the new, critically-acclaimed comic book series from writer/artist Kevin McShane. The show will take place Friday March 17th 2006 @ 8pm at Los Angeles' famous I.O. West comedy theatre.

The show's cast includes such seasoned improvisers as Opus Moreschi (The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn), Dave Hill (Crime Scenes), Chris Tallman (Chris Tallman's Batman), Toby Wilson (Boys and Girls Guide to Getting Down), Jill Alexander (Las Vegas), and Rory Ledbetter (The Sky Is Falling).

"As a performer at I.O. West myself, I'm really looking forward to working with my uber-talented peers to bring my book to life," said Toupydoops creator Kevin McShane.

"I also look forward to welcoming my fellow artists and comic fans in town for WizardWorld LA that weekend," McShane stated. "I realize there's not much to do in LA after dark on a Friday night, so hopefully this show will help stem people's boredom until the Con opens up again Saturday morning."

Tickets for Toupydoops Live are $10, or $5 with a purchase of Toupydoops #1. Reservations can by made by calling 323.962.7560 or online at

Together with his best friend Teetereater, Toupydoops navigates adventures in life, love and cartoon showbiz in his attempt to find a place where he truly belongs. "It's like Swingers meets Roger Rabbit," explains McShane.

West is the premiere venue for improv and sketch comedy in the greater Los Angeles area. With such SNL and MadTV cast members as Mike Meyers, Chris Farley, and Tina Fey among its alumni, I.O. & I.O.
