Confirmed Location and Time! W00t!
We're now officially added as a panel titled Comedy Club at Fanime
. You can find us listed as at the panel information page herehttp://www.fanime.com/panels_files/panels.htmlComedy Club at FanimeCome share an evening of laughs with The Comedy Club at Fanime! Whether it's Anime, Manga, or the intricacies of being an avid fan, nothing is sacred as we poke fun at all that encompasses being an otaku! This panel is recommended for a 16+ audience for language.
Time: Saturday 7PM
Location: San Carlos Room (In the Hilton!)
We currently have FIVE people signed up, so here's some information for the people signed up to perform at the panel. I do not plan on accepting routines on site unless something drastic happens. Sign ups are open again for one or two more slots! PM me for more info.
Routines should now be 5-7 minutes. I will not be extending them again if we lose an act. We'll simply do an improv routine with all the participants if we are short on the individual sets. To ensure we don't all do a 5 minute performance and have 20 minutes of dead time, please let me know well ahead of time (end of April?) how long your routine will be. If you don't mind sharing what you'll be talking about, I can also check to make sure we're not ALL going to joke about Super Smash Brothers and beat the same subjects to death.
Please script or outline your performance to check for time. It really isn't as easy as it looks, the only thing worse than being not funny is awkward silence when you run out of stuff to say. Please let me know as soon as possible how long your routine will be so I can accommodate longer/shorter ones. Thanks!
The panel should be appropriate for a 16+ audience. If you're not sure if something is too racy... leave it out. Swear words are okay as long as you don't base your entire routine on them.
I've requested either Saturday or Sunday night sometime between 7 to 11pm. If you're sure you cannot make both of those times, do not sign up (or un-sign up). If you cannot make one of the nights, let me know so I will be ready if Fanime slots us in a time you cannot attend.
Towards the con, I will be asking for phone numbers so I can contact you if there's a change in plans. I will also provide my number in case you cannot make it and don't find out until the con.
Props are okay as long as you are allowed to have said prop on convention hall grounds according to all state/federal laws and convention rules, and will be allowed only if they only require less than 5 minutes to set up before the panel (not after someone else's act, please), will not get in the way of the other participants and audience members and only 2 minutes to clean up *by yourself* Anything that you damage at the convention center will be all you. I'll be more than happy to turn you and your contact information over to the convention organizers if you do something stupid on an epic scale :3.
Any questions, send them to my e-mail at ayabrea at gmail dot com or send me a PM. New stuff for 4/30/08
TIME SET (Tentative): We're tentatively set for Saturday 5/24 at 7-8PM. Unless something happens with someone else's panel, that's the time we're going to have. Location and time will be reconfirmed once the list is officially green-lighted by Fanime staff.
Time Request and Confirmation: Everyone who is already signed up please send me the approximate amount of minutes your routine will be. Do make sure you appropriate some time in there for laughter pause :3 I'm going to try to set it up so no one gets edged out of time, so please, be as accurate as you can. If you haven't already started writing your stuff, now's the time to do it! You got a little over three weeks until con!
I will send out an e-mail to those who have contacted me about signing up to confirm. If you cannot make Saturday or the 7pm time slot, now is the time to let me know (and we'll miss you ;_;) If you thought you signed up but did not get an e-mail from me by tomorrow, please PM or e-mail me at ayabrea at gmail dot com to let me know I missed you. Still more New Stuff 5/10/08
As expected some participants pulled out due to our tentative Saturday scheduling. Now we have 5 confirmed, so we can breathe a little easier for time, but I'll still need everyone's estimated time. I can slot in one or two more acts (otherwise, we fill dead time with improv :3), please PM or e-mail me at ayabrea at gmail dot com for details. New Stuff 5/16/08
Our time is confirmed: Saturday 7PM in the San Carlos Room of the Hilton! Come join us! We have ramen... (okay, no we don't, we're just trying to lure you into our room. Mwa ha ha ha, ha ha ha ha--*cough cough, hack*)
