My Brother, My Brother and Me Wiki

The Adventure Zone[1][2] is a comedy/roleplaying podcast run by the McElroy brothers and their dad. It is hosted on the Maximum Fun Network, and released every other Thursday.

The initial pilot aired on August 18th, 2014[3] as a special episode of MBMBaM, and it was launched as its own separate show on December 3rd 2014.[4]

As of April 2021, the show has just concluded its third major season.

  • During live episodes, the McElroys play through a one-shot story, which may be a spin-off from one of their previous campaigns or in an entirely unique setting.
  • Additionally, the McElroys have hosted several episodes of The The Adventure Zone Zone, a sort of aftershow in which they discuss their thoughts and answer listener questions.


The theme music for the first campaign, "Balance," was composed by Mort Garson, but later themes and other music were composed by Griffin McElroy. The music of The Adventure Zone is available for listening/purchase on Griffin's bandcamp.

The first campaign, "Balance," is currently being adapted into a series of graphic novels, illustrated by Carey Pietsch and published by First Second Books. The first two books were New York Times Bestsellers.

In January 2020, an animated TV pilot of "Balance" was announced to be in development for NBC's streaming service Peacock.[5]
