Okay, I don't want to be the one who jumps the gun but is it okay with everyone if I send the application on behalf of the panel to stage zero by tomorrow? The deadline is really close.

I'm know I'm really risking a scolding by Aya  ^^;; , but I don't have a problem if we did this stage zero preview completely under her supervision.

Better to ask for forgiveness than permission, I say. I mean, as long as we all have our 16+ content filters on (maybe even more stringent since on stage for even more mass consumption, the heads who are going on should be golden.

Quick we gotta take a final head count. So far from what I've gathered our performers are...



Ok, I think I'm convinced to leave it at an hour. I suppose it would be better to be rushing than to be like, 'we have all this time now you guys, what do you wanna do' and I do agree with G that it'll force our sets have to pop that much faster, versus the rambling on and on. Stand-up wise, the amount of time that does go into a tight five is pretty staggering. Let alone, a decent 10-15.

And I guess that means inadvertently, less possibility of audience turnover. If there's a constant barrage of comedy coming at them, they won't get bored, leave midway through the panel. They'll (probably, more likely) stay for the whole thing and have a fine time! We are doing it for the audience, after all.

Yeah I got no problem doing a 5min set just need some one to tell that my time is almost up.

Agreed. I don't think we did this in the past two years, but maybe this year, if we could find somebody (a vol maybe?) to keep time for us, that'd be great. They could shine a light (or gesture wildly) in our general direction when we have two minutes left, and shine a light (or gesture wildly) again in our direction when we got 30 seconds left in our set.

Just like in a real comedy club!

Although I do second Glitch's harmless suggestion of trying to lobby for a two-hour panel, if it is at all possible, Fanime panel gods. I just think folks might have more fun if it isn't so much SIT DOWN SHUT UP, WE'RE GONNA CRAM SO MUCH COMEDY DOWN YOUR THROAT RUSH RUSH RUSH. And it would give us time cushions as well for unforeseen circumstances.

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.
Any word on Comedy Club for 2010? Is it even going to be happening this year?

what was up with that one guy dissing san jose?

OMG I KNOW!  I was just going to post that! 

Living in San Jose is bad enough as it is, don't have to rub it in!  >:(

Famous last words: I regret nothing!

Speaking of Youtube and shameless self-promotion, my set from the Comedy Club is up, relive the magic, for the first time:

Anybody else's clips up anywhere up?

I can't believe I'm already writing material for this. Regardless, looking very forward to this, last year's was really fun (I can't get over telling people the first time I did stand-up was at Fanime).

Is there a way to possibly look into recording this year's go-around? Maybe video, or audio? I know that's what they did when Patton Oswalt performed at BlizzCon, and yes granted none of us are Patton Oswalt, and we're not at BlizzCon, might be something to think about, especially since we have all this lead time until Fanime.

My only major critique (aside from microphones) was how that one audience member in the front row felt the need to CONSTANTLY interrupt. A few snide comments here and there are cool but when the guy was saying something after ever sentence I was really getting annoyed. Really I was scared that he would cause a lot of people to leave and I literally told the guy to shut the hell up when I went on stage, ok I wasn't that rude but you know what I mean.

are you talking about the guy in the blue cosplay with the cousin it emo hair, which literally covered his whole face, cobra commander style who was off to the side of the comedians? if not, carry on.

also, i would like to thank joyce for having this at fanime, this is easily one of my favorite things i have ever done at any fanime. speaking of which. it's paolo, the 2nd comic up. this was my first time doing stand up as i said, and this was an extremely great experience, and i'm glad at the reception i got. i am also surprised at how much i was able to talk about anime for. lastly, for memories, my job was rad enough to host my entire set on our site.

this definitely was a catalyst for something.
