Internet information

Guy Anthony Hutchinson (born November 22, 1974) is an American author, broadcaster, theme park historian and comedian.[1][2][3]

Published works[edit]

Hutchinson (with Chris Mercaldo) wrote the book Sesame Place which was published by Arcadia Publishing.[4]

The book was made with the cooperation of Sesame Place and Sesame Workshop and tells the 35-year history of the Pennsylvania theme park in photos and text.[5] Hutchinson had begun researching the history of Sesame Place by "watching other people’s home movies on YouTube, sifting through Flickr photos, eBay auctions, and digging through old newspapers on Google," when he was contacted by Mercaldo about pitching the book to Arcadia Publishing.[6][7][8]


Hutchinson and John Galbo co-founded ACPN (, where Hutchinson previously co-hosted the interview series The Adventure Club.[9] He also co-hosts Drunk On Disney (with Dana Snyder).[10][11][12] On the show they try cocktails from EPCOT and the Disney hotels, but the title of that show refers the host's obsession with Disney theme parks as kids. In a 2015 interview Hutchinson said "we were 'drunk' on Disney before we had ever tried booze."[6]


Hutchinson began doing voice over work on WHWH radio in 1993. In 1994 he was promoted to "afternoon drive talk show host." Hutchinson left the station in 1997 and began working as a disc jockey at WMGQ where he worked for three years.[13][14]

Personal life[edit]

Hutchinson attended Notre Dame High School in Lawrenceville NJ, graduating in 1993.[15] Hutchinson currently resides in New Jersey.
