I hope you will donate this year because it is going to be our best work yet. Thank you to everyone who has donated and registered. It’s because of you that we can do this. We truly appreciate it.
Voice actor Jon St. John has an impressive CV, with credits ranging from the Sonic the Hedgehog series to Star Trek Online. But most video fan games will recognize him as the voice of the wisecracking, movie-quoting Duke Nukem.
Jon will be with us at Intervention this September, so we took a minute to ask him our five questions — about his career, the con, and what he’s most looking forward to!
InterventionCon: At Intervention, we take time to spotlight both fandom favourites and lesser-known creators. Is there a lesser-known creator you think our attendees should know about?
Jon St. John: I work with many independent game developers, so too many to mention in that arena…as far as artists, Danny Kang is a fantastic talent and I would like to see him get recognition.
IC: Is there anything about your career now that you wish you’d known when you were just starting out?
JSJ: Yeah – everything! But the VO business has changed so much over the years and has become so much easier thanks to technology. I wish I had taken my career more seriously in the beginning…I thought voice acting was a “side thing” to do while I was a radio personality and producer. Turns out – it’s the much better career choice.
IC: If an attendee were to walk up to you at the event, what would you be most excited to chat with them about?
JSJ: Games that they like and the types of characters that they love most in games. I want to land those roles…the ones players find most entertaining.
IC: Which of our other guests are you looking forward to seeing at Intervention?
JSJ: Todd Haberkorn and I are friends…I will enjoy hanging with Todd…but René Auberjonois is the fellow I most interested in meeting. I’ve been a fan of his work for many years.
IC: Is there anything else you’re looking forward to at the con?
JSJ: Yeah – party time!! I like to party with fans and friends, so join me for a shot of tequila, won’t you?

GUYS. This is super special because it’s one of the first things I’ve been able to design after having recovered from eye surgery that restored my sight . I also think it’s the best con t shirt I have ever designed.
Definitely pre-order one of these!
We can’t order a lot of extra t shirts, so the only way to guarantee that you’ll get one in your size is to pre-order it and it will be waiting for you at the merch table when you arrive at the con. We will only have a small number of t shirts in limited sizes available at the con.
Pre order your shirt via the registration form. Note that this is the regular con t shirt. I will reveal the design for the VIP T Shirt soon.
That’s right – the price increase happens coming JULY 1ST!
The expansion to the con this year is going to be our best work yet. Spend a weekend with René Auberjonois, Gigi Edgley, Jon St John, Robert Axelrod, Pete Abrams, Dwight Schultz, and many more. We are about to announce another major guest (and remember – the more pre-registrations we get, the more we can do each year), so register now! :)
Artists and Vendors
We pride ourselves in being an all-inclusive atmosphere where the attendees, staff, and the guests have fun and truly enjoy their time together. Real conversations – and you’ll never be treated like a number. It’s because of your financial support that we can bring this to you and we appreciate every single one of you. We thank you so much for that and hope that you can enjoy us this year!
