On the entertainment side Dan Das Mann brought his fun mobile, Jim Turner and Mark Fite brought their amazing improv skills to the Girlie Magazine Show, and Martin Olson and Olivia Olson (Adventure Time's very own in real life father-daughter duo) gave a musical performance and signed copies of the upcoming book Adventure Time: The Enchiridion & Marcy's Super Secret Scrapbook!!!
