Riot Games told Upcomer that League of Legends shoutcaster and personality David “Phreak” Turley will be making a cameo in this week’s esports themed episode of The Simpsons.
“Phreak has a small, voiceover cameo...but he won’t be Simpsonized,” Riot said in its announcement to Upcomer.

The episode is already set to be jam-packed with esports and League references, but having the sense to add in the voice of one of the most recognizable shoutcasters in the scene means these Simpsons producers must’ve really done their homework.
As it turns out, they did spend a lot of time researching the League space in order to make the episode happen. With the help of Riot Games, they attended LCS matches and even explored Team Liquid’s Alienware Training Facility to have a more in-depth understanding of it all.
So if you (somehow) find yourself wanting more of Phreak’s lovely puns after this weekend’s games, you’ll be able to get an extra dose on FOX at 5pm PT.
