Steve Goodie and Marc Gunn Added to the Line-Up

2018's line-up just keeps on getting better! We are proud to announce that Marc Gunn and Steve Goodie will both be joining us at FuMPFest 2018.

Marc Gunn, affectionately known as the #Celtfather, plays Nerd Pub Songs. He fuses traditional Irish and Scottish songs with topics like Star Trek, Doctor Who, Firefly, Lord of the Rings, cats, and more.

Steve Goodie is a comedian, singer, songwriter, and record producer from Nashville Tennessee who has the distinct honor of having penned Nina Yankovic's favorite parody, "Dumbledore," a parody of her father's original song "Hardware Store."

And don't forget our early registration pricing ends at the end of the month!

Bill Larkin and Mikey Mason Added to the Line-Up; Early Registration Extended

Bill Larkin does comedy at the piano. An accomplished actor and singer, Bill can be found at Chicago's own Howl at the Moon dueling piano bar and in various musical productions in and around Chicago, including playing the role of Max Bialystock in The Producers. He has appeared on Chicago P.D., Sirens, and Premium Blend, as well as productions of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum and Disney's Aladdin. Bill was a surprise guest at FuMPFest 2017 where he performed his hit song from The Dr. Demento Show "I'm Just Your Mom" during the "Live Podcasts" panel and we are thrilled that he will be joining us in 2018 for a full one-hour concert. For more information on him visit BillLarkin.com

Mikey Mason describes himself as a geek-comedy-rock god. He comes armed with infectiously hilarious original songs and a completely twisted world view. He may be best known for his hit song "Best Game Ever," a Gygax-family approved telling of one particularly rowdy game of Dungeons and Dragons. But we also implore you to check out "scoobyThulu" which is just what it sounds like. The Scooby Gang vs. Cthulhu in song form, which, sadly, has not been turned into a direct-to-DVD full-length movie yet. You can find more information about him at MikeyMason.com

Also, we have extended early registration pricing another month. Prices will now go up February 1, 2018, so get your registrations in now!

New Guest Announcement: Amanda Cohen

We are thrilled to welcome stand-up comic Amanda Cohen to FuMPFest. Amanda was the person who put together the AlCon conventions and we will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of the first one—AlCon 98—at FuMPFest. AlCon 98 was where many of us first met each other in person for the first time so we wanted to look back and relive some of those memories. Amanda will be on hand to be a part of our special AlCon 98 Retrospective panel. She will also be hosting the 8th annual Logan Whitehurst Memorial Awards for Excellence in Comedy Music.
