This coming Friday, October 16th will be the premier of "The Amazing Adventures of Captain Quick!" and we're giddy to know what you people will think of it.
The show can be described as a mixture of the unintentionally bizarre/ intentionally racist 1940's Batman Serial and Thrilling Adventure Hour, with more emphasis on 30's-50's middle American hypocrisy. Such as casual racism of "foreigners", commercials for dangerous kitchen cleaners that cause brain damage, workplace sexism, and blind patriotism that make for the best combination of American exceptionalism, personified in the Captain Quick character. Let us tell you, there is plenty to work with there. For the few who saw Hench Life, you might notice that Captain Quick made his debut in the short film but has since then evolved into a particularly different character. The series needed a voice that could blend dashing and ignorant in a charming way. If that sounds unappealing then it's just what we want.
Donning the voice of Captain Quick is the talented Greg Maddox. "It was a hard transition to play a character that is 'quick' when I usually play characters who are 'fast'," said Maddox, who works primarily as Mark Wahlberg's left hand double in movies and commercials. As his obedient secretary, Suzy Tortoise, is up-and-coming voice actress Miranda Limonczenko. Her previous voice acting experience was reading to the elderly at Shady Oaks Maximum Retirement Facility. "Just say it loudly. That's been my approach in the past and that's my approach now," said Limonczenko. Showrunner/ creator of the series, Adam Carra, lends his omniscient voice to the Announcer of the show. "If I created the show and wrote episodes for the show and am narrating the show... that makes me God in this world. I am God!" said Carra in an early morning voicemail left on voice actor, Stefan Perez's phone. Stefan Perez returns to voice acting after the abrupt cancellation of his weekly sketch comedy radio show, In Da Club-Hizzie, where in 2007, Perez went on a bigoted tirade against the people of Finland. Perez had these comments, "It was a dark time in my life and I regret it everyday. I've learned from that experience since I was only in middle school and would like to put it behind me. I even have Finnish friends now," Perez reprises his role of Commissioner O'Malley from the noir short Tough Case.
Providing a large variety of characters in the series is vocal chameleon, Miles Levin. "Hey, I'm in it too! That's cool," said Levin. Returning to the role that granted him the prestigious "Guzman Acting Award for Acting" is Anthony F. Guzman as Hero Man. "I wish I could say it's good to be back." The series also featured special guest appearances by Richard La Rosa, Sophia La Rosa, and Summer Mayne.
Finally, the man who has made it all possible. Matt Koons the Sound Producer, whose agenda is still unknown but the closest theory is that he is genuinely a nice person. A character trait, relatively unknown to the Flat Pack.
The wanna-be radio show has three episodes recorded so far with three more episodes to go. So, if this sounds like a show for you then give it a listen, a like, a share, a subscribe, a retweet, a favorite, a thumbs up, a hashtag trend, and an audience.
