Dan Farr of Salt Lake Comic Con made a guest announcement today on Good Things Utah. Get ready, because this year is going to be supercalifragilisticexpialidocious with Hollywood legend Dick Van Dyke coming!
Van Dyke is an actor, comedian, singer, dancer, producer and writer. Van Dyke has starred in some of the most iconic films of our generation, including Disney’s Mary Poppins, Bye Bye Birdie, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and the Night at the Museum series. In addition to his movie roles, Van Dyke also starred in a number of hit TV shows, most notably The Dick Van Dyke Show and Diagnosis Murder.
In 2005 Van Dyke and Salt Lake Comic Con Founder and Show Producer Dan Farr collaborated on a Christmas book, Mr. Finnegan’s Giving Chest. Farr wrote the book and Van Dyke narrated an audio CD. In the book, Mr. Finnegan (Van Dyke) is no ordinary toy maker. His providential meeting with Maggie, a resentful girl who doesn’t believe in the magic of Christmas, is the beginning of a series of miracles that will change her heart forever.
