Comedy Club at Fanime 2010 Updated: 5/16/2010
« on: March 08, 2010, 01:25:14 AM »

We're (planning on being) back for another year of stand up comedy at Fanime!  

Sign up is currently CLOSED.  We have SEVEN confirmed performers for a 1 hour panel.  

Performers: Please have your set at or under SIX AND A HALF MINUTES. You must write, rehearse and TIME your performance!  This time limit will be strictly enforced.  (I will have one of those Looney Tunes canes…)  If you do not require 6.5 minutes, let me know and I can maybe give it out to someone else who wants your extra minutes.  Your set should be at least 5 minutes, though.    

I will not be able to accommodate any additional equipment requests.  You get a mic if the room is big enough.  If you want music or video, sorry, this is not possible.  I cannot afford to spend additional time on set up or breakdown as well as for equipment failure. (Or even of the distraction of you setting up and breaking down during someone else's set.  Sorry!)

Current count: 8 7 performers

Current confirmed:
havok rt (confirmed)
passLion (confirmed)
The Doctor (confirmed)
radpaolo (confirmed)
G-Force (confirmed)
Glitch (confirmed)
Aya Brea X (Me)

For more information on what goes down in this panel, check out last year's thread.  (Hey, whatever happened to that guy who taped all the sets last year?)  

One last thing for performers, please send me an e-mail with your confirmed time (remember 6.5 minutes or less!), your real name, badge name, phone number that I can reach you at the convention, what you want to be announced as and a tidbit about yourself so I can work it into your introduction.  I will need this by April 24, 2010.  I will in turn send you my phone number so you can contact me at con in case anything happens.  

IF I DO NOT GET AN E-MAIL FROM YOU WITH THIS INFORMATION BY MAY 1 2010 12:01AM , THEN YOU ARE NOT PERFORMING.

I just sent an e-mail or PM to the three people I am still missing this information from, so if you fail to respond to me via e-mail, you have NO EXCUSE if I drop you from the start list.   THERE WILL BE NO ADDITIONAL EXTENTIONS.  If some crazy emergency prevented you from checking here or your e-mail for two weeks, you need time to get your stuff together rather than worry about this show.  

UPDATE: 5/3/2010: Thank you for those who sent in confirmations.  Please see above for the updated performers list.  Good luck working on and practicing on your set!  Please expect an e-mail from me by the end of next weekend confirming the details and the start order of the performers.  If I have not already provided it to you, I will give you my at-con contact number at this next e-mail.

Tentative time is slated for Saturday night, 7pm.  I will confirm once the final time listing is out.  

Update 5/16/10 Final e-mail coming soon.  Just waiting on one person to confirm an e-mail address.  If you guys have any last minute questions please e-mail or PM me.  

Start list is confirmed, I'll give you the order in the last e-mail.  We should be good to go.  The panel times are not listed in the website... and doesn't look like it will be before the con, so please please double check the schedule book when you get it at registration, but as far as the last communique I got from Panels we are slated for Saturday, 7pm-8pm in Panels 3 (Salons IV, V, and VI in the Marriott).  If I notice a change at con I will text you all.  If I am notified earlier I will just e-mail you guys.

If you have any questions regarding this event, please feel free to send me a PM or an e-mail at ayabrea@gmail.com

No really sick lolita jokes?
*scratches off half of jokes on list.*
In all seriousness , although I can only speak about myself,toning down the jokes won't be a problem. I will avoid mentioning dog droppings,pedophile priests, and my love for underage girls.( ironically it was a harmless joke from Paolo about the Sharks team that upset some people. XD)
I really look forward to this year. And yes, more female comedians. I would like to see even more different styles of comedy.

I'll make most of my jokes clean. And we can tell the crowd "meet us in the hallway after the panel is over to hear all the risky jokes fanime didn't want you to hear!" (yes, that itself is also a joke. XD)

Well, you can mention dog droppings, that in itself is not so bad.  You can mention pedophiles and make fun of them in general, but joking about the nocturnal habits of pedo fan(man)boys is probably out of line (I don't want to hear it, and I'd imagine a lot of other people don't want to have that mental image etched in their imaginations either.)

It doesn't have to be Saturday afternoon clean... let's go for Prime Time levels.  If the FCC is okay with it, it's cool with me.

Yeah... don't joke about the Sharks.  Bad idea.  We love the Sharks... and their practice rink is not too far away, so don't be surprised if they are waiting for you outside with their hockey sticks this year.  ^_^;;;

If we're going to start talking about things we can and cannot say, can we at least have a moratorium on any reference to "Dateline NBC" or "To Catch a Predator?"

Either way, I'm in.

That seemed to be the running gag for fanime. Even when I cam back to my hotel room my friend said "have a seat".

I still think the reaction to the sharks/san jose joke is a mountain out of a mole hill.
I myself will mind my manners if someone heckles or boos, but if there's a chance to make a funny comeback I'll do it.

That seems somehow counter-intuitive.

Mind your manners, when they don't mind theirs, I mean.

Well alot of the things I say during my set are counter-intuitive. XD
But in all serious, by "minding my manners" I mean I won't flip out and talk about the person's mother's anatomy or things of that nature. I will respond but just not to that vulgar degree.(no matter how much tempted :3)
Although I would say don't worry because heckling and booing rarely happened. The audience is a good sport.

^-~ Y'all get extra kudos if you throw in some jokes about Fantasy RPG to blend in with this year's theme...

What if everyone on the roster this year had a meetup prior to the panel? Like a pow-wow to go over our material and tweak it appropriately so that we all are as entertaining for the audience as possible.

Since this isnt a competition, there's no reason for us to not work together to make the panel as kick arse as possible.

We don't really have a meetup before the panel. All we do is wait 15 minutes before the previous panel ends, and maybe chit chat about what jokes we have in mind.

And of course we work together. As we always do. Because we're damn awsome. ^^

We really should get to know each other more, I mean we've been working together as a team for three years now. However with me, I really wouldn't benefit from doing a preview performance in front of you guys as I really can't get my rhythm unless I'm performing in front of a decently sized crowd.

Okay guys, I've updated the entire first post, so if you haven't read it since 3/28, go read it to make sure you are updated!

I don't care if you do a Chris Hanson joke.  Hey, if you can still work it in in a surprisingly funny way, go for it.  It's not totally relevant anymore since the show hasen't been on for years, but hey, you can still make it work.  (On a related note: The "It's over 9000!!!!" joke seems to still be funny, and DBZ has been over for how long?) 

Again, it's not my intent to control your material and do jokes that only I think are funny, but my concern is that I did not tell Fanime that this is an 18 plus panel, so if you start doing 18+ jokes and someone complains, you are jeopardizing our ability to come back next year.

Okay, seriously?  No girls again?  (Besides me)  One of you guys needs to put on a dress when you’re performing just so I won’t feel as bad.


If it helps, I actually planned to be in crossplay. I managed to work it into my set.

Dont worry though, it's not a Man-F*ye thing.
