Bob’s Burgers is the gift that keeps on giving. It’s bestowed on us Linda’s impromptu nonsense songs, Louise’s bunny-eared brand of mayhem, a wealth of Tina one-liners, the phrase “Gene-ing out,” and a panoply of Bob’s burgers puns. Earlier this year Fox made us cheer by announcing this quirky cartoon show about a wacky yet relatable family of five is getting a season 6. But that’s not all my fellow fanatics! Bob’s Burgers is also getting its own burger-centric cookbook, and a live comedy show tour!
Deep-cut devotees of the Belcher clan may know that next-level fan Cole Bowden has a blog dedicated to recreating the daily burgers featured on Bob’s beloved blackboard. Now, NPR reports Bowden, a Honda engineer who reverse-engineered burger puns into actual food, is working on an actual Bob’s Burgers cookbook, including recipes for the Beets of Burden Burger, the Blue is the Warmest Cheese Burger, and even the dreaded Tunami. And (better yet) it’s one fully endorse by the show’s creator Loren Bouchard, who will be supplying illustrations. Bouchard said, “The work he has done deserves to be printed and bound and put up on a shelf somewhere. He’s done so much culinary heavy lifting, we wouldn’t do it without Cole.”
There’s no word on when this culinary piece of fan art extraordinaire will be available. But in the meantime, we can all relish (ha!) in Bowden’s site. Aaaaannnd! We can seek out the cast on their new comedy tour!
Bob’s Burgers Live will hit several major cities, bringing it with it H. Jon Benjamin (Bob), John Roberts (Linda), Dan Mintz (Tina), Eugene Mirman (Gene), and Kristen Schaal (Louise) for onstage shenanigans and likely songs. To be honest, I don’t know much more than that. However, I’ve seen this group get goofy at New York Comic Con. I’ve seen the Archer Live! show with Benjamin. And between these two, I’d say it’s worth moonlighting as a cabbie to make it happen.
