‘Napoleon Dynamite’s’ Jon Heder to appear at Lilac City Comicon 2019

Jon Heder and Efrin Ramierez

In 2014, I got to see Jon Heder as part of Salt Lake Comic Con’s (now called FanX) “Napoleon Dynamite” reunion. Heder and co-star Efrin Ramirez took the stage to talk about the movie, its effects on their lives, and what it meant to them. Heder was convinced to try to recreate the infamous dance routine, which he said he couldn’t really remember because it was improvised.

While Heder is generally recognized for his first feature film role, he has done several other comedies of note, including “Benchwarmers,” and “Blades of Glory.” Heder has also voice acted in “Star vs. the Forces of Evil” and “Pickle and Peanut.”

For those who are interested in Walt Disney’s story, Heder played Roy Disney in “Walt before Mickey.” [Author’s note: As the author of “Disneyland is Creativity” and with “The Haunted Mansion Is Creativity” scheduled for release at Lilac City Comicon 2019, this role seems like it may be the most important.] He also did vocal work for “Epic Mickey 2.”

Heder is scheduled to be in Spokane for Lilac City Comicon 2019. Other guests include Chris Kattan, WWE wrestler Hacksaw Jim Duggan, and “Stranger Things” star Randy Havens. Get your tickets for Lilac City Comicon 2019. Remember that guests may change for any comic convention as actors book acting gigs or other obligations may pop up.

Be sure to preorder your penguinate.com penguins, books and other merchandise and have it available for you at the convention. Same convention pricing, just pick it up at our table.

Top Three Reasons to Preorder Penguinate.com Items for Lilac City Comicon 2019

Booth set up for Lilac City Comicon

Going to Lilac City Comicon 2019 is exciting. You get to meet guests like Jon Heder, “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan and Chris Kattan, and there are plenty of fan items that you can’t get easily anywhere else. If you want to get the most out of your #LCCC2019 experience, now is the time to start, and preordering is a part of the process. How does preordering help you?

Stretch Your Budget

If you’re like most people, you have a monthly budget that includes a little bit of discretionary spending. Often, it’s difficult to save this money, and you may find that you’ve spent it on coffee, music downloads, or something else you don’t really need. By preordering items for #LCCC2019, you’ll be able to take that discretionary spending money and turn it into shopping surprises at the comicon!

Get Your Items

For a business that makes handmade items like penguinate.com, you can order special-made items to match your tastes and fandom. If you like a particular Power Ranger, Pirate of the Caribbean, Doctor Who or are a member of another fandom, preordering allows you to get the penguin cosplaying in a way you want.

Preordering also ensures that if something gets sold out, you won’t miss out. Your items will be waiting for you at our booth, and you won’t have to miss out on the hottest items available.

Enjoy Convention Pricing

When you preorder, you still get convention pricing. This means that you’ll get our best price. You don’t have to worry about shipping and handling charges because you’re picking it up. Be sure to get your Lilac City Comicon 2019 VIP tickets first, and then place your order for stuffed penguins, The Haunted Mansion Is Creativity and other books, motivational posters and pictures.

Lilac City Comicon 2019: The Hottest Ticket this year!

Booth set up for Lilac City Comicon

Lilac City Comicon 2019 will be on June 1 and 2, 2019 at the Spokane Convention center, and penguinate.com will be there again! Our second year will be bigger and better with your participation. “The Haunted Mansion Is Creativity” is scheduled to be released for the convention, and I am scheduled to give a presentation during the weekend focused on the information in my book – “The Haunted Mansion: 50 Years of Creativity.”

My presentation doesn’t have to be your main reason for going. You might also go because you love our penguins and want to pick one up from the artist herself! Join our Patreon and you’ll get an amazing discount on all your penguinate.com table purchases. (Preorder page will be posted shortly, but if you want to reserve your penguin or have one made for in time for the convention, contact us; you’ll get convention prices and skip the postage costs!) Or maybe you just want to get a Russian lobby card (mini movie poster) of a favorite movie.

Nathan O’Brien and his team have lined up some amazing stars, including Jon Heder and Chris Kattan. I’m super excited about seeing Hacksaw Jim Duggan! HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Randy Havens from “Stranger Things” and Falk Hentschel from DC’s “Legends of Tomorrow” are also scheduled to appear. As at any comic convention, guests are subject to change due to acting schedules and for other reasons.

Lilac City Comicon 2019 is already shaping up to be one of the hottest tickets for this year. We look forward to seeing you there! Penguinate.com is one of many sponsors for Lilac City Comicon 2019. Be sure to preorder your penguinate.com items!
