A parody film based on the live tour about an animated series? We’d pay to see more of this.

Bob’s Burgers has gained a loyal following over its six seasons on the air, sold out live tours across the country, and now it’s been made into a movie. Well, sort of.

In honor of Bob’s Burgers’s 100th episode, which airs May 22, the Belchers (and some of the characters they regularly encounter) revealed just what got the whole gang back together for its latest live tour, which involves standup, table readings, and a live Q&A. H. Jon Benjamin, John Roberts, Eugene Mirman, Dan Mintz, and creator Loren Bouchard are all here in Kristen Schaal’s directorial debut—some of them more eager than others—with appearances from frequent voice actors like Larry Murphy, David Herman, Brooke Dillman, and Kevin Kline.

With fake coke, doll removal, a mermaid, and a secret talent from one member of the cast involved in the reunion, Bob’s Burgers Live: The Movie is just as weird as Bob’s Burgers itself. But it wouldn’t feel so right otherwise.
