Titled “Game Your Brain to Superhero Status,” the panel takes place Friday, July 25 at 1:30 p.m. PT at the SDCC, Room 24ABC.
Penn, who many will recognize from the “Harold and Kumar” movie franchise and television shows “House” and “How I Met Your Mother,” is set to host Nat Geo’s “Mapology,” which will debut next year.
The panel of Nat Geo stars includes Tony Gonzalez (“You Can’t Lick Your Elbow”), Dr. Armand Dorian (“You Can’t Lick Your Elbow”), David Rees (“Going Deep with David Rees”) and Eric LeClerc (“Brain Games”).
The panelists will take attendees through various experiments intended to trick one’s mind and make “heroic” acts and abilities achievable.
“Brain Games” airs Mondays at 9/8c p.m., “Going Deep With David Rees” airs Mondays at 10/9c; and “You Can’t Lick Your Elbow With Tony Gonzalez” and “Mapology With Kal Penn” will premiere in 2015 on Nat Geo.
NGC will also host Nerd Nite San Diego during San Diego Comic Con on Friday, July 25, at SILO in Makers Quarter starting at 7:30 PT.
