This panel at San Diego Comic Con often flies under the radar of most Con attendees but is certainly a fan favorite. John Barrowman gives us a no holds barred question and answer session filled with great humor, fun, and of course all the John Barrowman you crave year-round. While the panel may be slightly NSFW, the laughs and fun create memories that last a lifetime.
Every year at Comic Con, John previews some incredible and funny cosplay and this year is no different. Teasing his fans on Facebook and Twitter, he hinted at an epic cosplay pertaining to Doctor Who. His panel began with a roar. His sparkly Tardis dress a flutter, the fans love him. He exclaimed that he is the transgender tardis and it is bigger on the inside!
He turned 50 this year. Taking nieces and nephews ATVing and someone’s thinks he is that guy from arrow but a lot older. In retribution he cut the tires and exclaims that’s the first time he put anything near a slit.
He reminds us of yelling at his husband for being naked on FB live. “Despite Facebook taking it down, thanks to all of you, it went viral in ten minute.” After that, John was with Scott’s parents in the U.K., and his mother asks if it’s true that Scott’s cock is all over the internet. John laughs and Scott’s father says, I don’t see why he should, he’s apparently well hung.
What are your feelings regarding the new Doctor? The thing is if we buy into the world of Doctor Who, we go where the Tardis takes us. It doesn’t say that he will be a he all the time so it could conceivably happen. If you believe it as that world. It could possible happen. The other thing is we all get on the Tardis with the Doctor and we go for the journey, for the experience and the stories. Now I love Doctor Who. We have to wait and see what happens. Let’s all give it a chance.
While on stage, John needs help reading something and brings a cute guy up, and asks him to read the tag on his panties.
When are you coming back to Doctor Who? I don’t know. It’s up to the producers. Write, text, tweet to Doctor Who.
What role haven’t you played that you really want to play? I was gonna say a dad and I played one but not a really good one. I’d like to do a more lighthearted role, some comedy. We do have something coming up our sleeve if you want to come to our a legendary panel. We are doing something really new with a comic book. Something that hasn’t been done with an actor and a Comic book. The Comic is called Cursed.
How would you feel if there was a male companion for the female Doctor? Give the doctor a female companion, give them a transgender companion. It can be open to a lot.
You and your husband had a garage sale, did you think about it at all putting your address out there? No, because I know if you wanted it, you would find it. No one disrespected it. Everybody was cool.
Out of all the people you’ve worked with, who do you have the biggest crush on? Shut up! My 50th, Stephen Amell said he will pop out of a cake in a speedo. Keith and Stephen and Kelsey disappeared. Kelsey is known as my Asian bitch. Keith and Steph come out in speeds holding John’s birthday cake. Kelsey tells him he has video of them changing, doing push ups on top of each other and stained the carpet.
One of the things I love about you is how you are so well-rounded. How did you learn to dance in heels? I learned by taking my mother’s shoes and walking around. I don’t know how it’s just in me. I had to teach my sister and my niece.
What books are your biggest inspirations? The book I go to is a The Outsiders. The author sent me a tweet saying “I’m so honored that my book made such a impact to make you the great and special person that you are.”
If you could be any superhero for a day, who would you be and why? I’ve already been Jack. I always wanted to play Captain America.
For the final question, what is the future of Torchwood? I don’t have an answer. I try to get it going and I seem to hit a wall. I even get the answer that “you can’t say that” from certain organizations. “I am John Barrowman and Anything fucking Goes”
Tying up the panel John decides to sing to the audience. They select Copa Cabana. Between the twirling, John lost his place in the words and made it more fun and memorable.
