"Big Bang Theory" Duo Simon Helberg, Kunal Nayyar to Make Wizard World Debuts at Chicago Comic Con August 23

Simon Helberg, Kunal Nayyar, who portray the "Big Bang Theory" duo of "Howard Wolowitz" and "Raj Koothrapali," will attend Wizard World Chicago Comic Con on August 23 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont. They join five WWE® Standouts including Superstar John Cena®, five "The Walking Dead" stars, Stan Lee, Sebastian Stan, Evan Peters and top comics creators at the Midwest's largest pop culture festival. It is Wizard World's longest running and highest attended show.

Rosemont, IL, July 23, 2014 --( Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar, two of the stars of the long-running hit Emmy® nominated TV series "The Big Bang Theory," will make their respective first Wizard World appearances at Chicago Comic Con, Saturday, August 23, only, at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center. The duo, who portray best friends Howard Wolowitz and Raj Koothrapali, respectively, will meet fans, sign autographs, pose for photo ops and conduct a joint interactive Q&A session.

Helberg, whose "Big Bang" comedic timing and witty one-liners have endeared his character to fans and critics alike, recently won the Critics’ Choice Television Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series. His feature directorial debut, We'll Never Have Paris, was well received at the 2014 South by Southwest Film & Music Festival.

Prior to "Big Bang," Helberg starred in Aaron’s Sorkin’s Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip which took place behind the scenes of a live sketch comedy show and starred Matthew Perry and Bradley Whitford.

Nayyar was a newcomer to the TV scene before landing the role as the sometimes awkward astrophysicist Koothrappali role on "Big Bang." In addition to guest starring roles on "NCIS" and "Sullivan & Sons," Nayyar voiced Gupta in the animated feature Ice Age: Continental Drift and has a role in the independent film Dr. Cabbie opposite Adrianne Palicki and Mircea Monroe.

The duo join David Boreanaz (“Bones,” “Angel”), Norman Reedus (“The Walking Dead,” Boondock Saints), Matt Smith and Karen Gillan (“Doctor Who,”), Katie Cassidy (“Arrow,” “Gossip Girl”), Patrick Stewart (X-Men, “Star Trek: TNG”) William Shatner (“Star Trek,” “T.J. Hooker”) and comics legend Stan Lee among the celebrities scheduled to attend the event, set for August 21-24.
