Geek'd Con is Shreveport's biggest comic and pop culture event, and it will return this August for the show's 5th anniversary. The event will once again be at the Shreveport Convention Center in Downtown Shreveport. This year's show will be on August 16th-18th.

This week, Geek'd Con got the Ark-La-Tex excited as Tank Girl herself, Lori Petty, was announced as a guest for the show this August in Shreveport.

Lori Petty is best known for her incredible performances in Point Break, A League of Their Own, and the titular role in Tank Girl.

She's appeared in other leading roles in high-profile releases like Free Willy (1993), Poetic Justice (1993), and the Pauly Shore comedy, In the Army Now (1994).

Lori then found her true calling as the bizarre cartoon-comic book heroine Tank Girl (1995), which was billed as a “post-apocalyptic comedy.” The crop-haired, tough-as-nails actress has been taking it to the limit ever since!

In 1999, Petty portrayed “Noss” on the popular TV series, Star Trek: Voyager. Petty is also known for providing the voice of the super villain “Livewire” on the Warner Bros. DC Comics cartoon series Superman: The Animated Series and The New Batman Adventures.

Lori made a splash on the highly popular Gotham TV series as Jeri. With the face paint of The Joker, and the clothes of Harley Quinn, who is now considered a female Joker (like Bianca Steeplechase in the comics) by fans of the show.

She stormed into the streaming world as “Lolly” on the highly acclaimed Netflix series Orange is the New Black, where she appeared for 4 seasons.
