FuMPFest Information

Paul and Storm - 2016 Guest of Honor

A Comedy-Music Festival/Convention

FuMPFest is a full weekend of comedy-music and related weirdness. If you're a fan of The Dr. Demento Show, The FuMP, or any of the other numerous outlets for comedy-music, you will feel right at home here.

FuMPFest features concerts throughout the weekend by today's top musical-comedy performers, including many of your favorite artists from The FuMP and The Dr. Demento Show. We also feature panels, interviews, and other events related to comedy-music and the guests on hand.

FuMPFest has been providing fans with up-close and personal comedy-music festivities since our first event with Dr. Demento in 2014. Since then we've played host to The Arrogant Worms (2015), Paul and Storm (2016), Henry Phillips (2017), and The Four Postmen (2018). For more information about past events please visit our Archive.
