More than just concerts
FuMPFest has a fantastic line-up of comedy-musicians performing throughout the weekend, but to break things up and add a little variety we also have some panels and special events sprinkled in throughout the weekend.
The following list is an example of some of the other programming you can expect at FuMPFest. The schedule is still being determined. Not all of the events below may appear on 2021's schedule.
FuMPFest E-Mail List
Sign up and receive and free exclusive download of live recordings from past events!
Gotta start somewhere, right? Welcome to FuMPFest! We'll be introducing the guests and welcoming you to the con, and presenting a couple special live performances. We will also be screening the entries to our Video Contest for this year.
Dumb Parody Ideas
A fast-paced, loosely organized contest to see who has come up with the dumbest parody idea. We present them in a rapid fire rotation as guests and even audience members get up and perform a verse and chorus of their dumbest song. Keep it short and move on to the next one. The winner is chosen by audience vote and will win the coveted Golden Spatula! You are limited to 3 songs, with a maximum of 90 seconds each. We'll be taking entries from the audience at the event. Be ready to go!
The FuMP Showcase
We invariably have more FuMP artists on hand than we have time for concerts, so this is a special concert just for them. Join us for performances by a select group of additional FuMP artists!
The 11th Annual Logan Whitehurst Memorial Awards for Excellence in Comedy Music
The FuMP is proud to bring you the first and only comedy music award ceremony. Each year fans of funny music submit their favorite songs for consideration, then a panel of jurors votes among the submissions to determine the nominees and winners. Awards are given out in three categories: Outstanding Original Comedy Music Song, Outstanding Parody Song, and Outstanding Comedy Music Video. All nominated songs will be performed or presented at the ceremony. Winners are presented with a statue of a Robot Cat. This year's ceremony will be hosted by Dr. Demento. For more information please visit LoganAwards.com
Late Night Karaoke
The Snack Bar/Karaoke room will be open throughout the convention, but just to make sure people get in some quality karaoke time we're keeping it up and running until 3am Friday and Saturday nights.
Artemis: Spaceship Bridge Simulator
Have you ever wanted to be part of the crew of a starship? That is what Artemis allows you to do. Using multiple computers set up on a local network players take on the rolls of Captain, Helm, Weapons, Engineering, Communications, and more, as they set off on an adventure through space. Artemis is being brought to us by our sponsor The Royal Manticoran Navy and will be open to play on Saturday from 9am - 9pm.
The State of The FuMP
Want a sneak peek behind the scenes at what is going on at The FuMP? This is your chance. Devo Spice and fellow FuMP members will be on hand to answer questions, discuss our plans for the future, and talk about what has been going on with The FuMP over the past year.
Devo Spice will be presenting a live recording of Manic Mondays featuring live performances, News of the Stupid, and more, followed by a live presentation of another podcast by someone in attendance.
Q&A with GOH
FuMPFest 2021 guest of honor Dr. Demento will be on hand to answer whatever questions you may have.
Autographs: Dr. Demento
Dr. Demento will be signing autographs on Saturday afternoon. Each guest gets one free autograph with their registration. Have them sign your program book, merchandise, whatever!
What The FuMP?
How's your dementia knowledge? Are you the ultimate comedy-music fan? Put your knowledge to the test against other audience members in this Jeopardy-like game show which takes cues from several other popular game shows. Contestants will be chosen from the audience (from a pool of people who signed up) and battle head-to-head for the title of ultimate dementia fan! This year's questions will focus more on comedy-music and The Dr. Demento Show in general, rather than focus on FuMP trivia. Hosted by the great Luke Ski.
We're Number 1!
From 2007 when The FuMP launched until 2017, and again in 2019, the most requested song of the year on The Dr. Demento Show was a song posted at The FuMP. Many of those artists will be in attendance this weekend so we're going to get as many of them as we can to perform their #1 songs in order. It's time for number one...
All good things must come to an end, and such is the case with FuMPFest. Join us to announce the winners of the Video Contest, perform another special song or two, and say goodbye. We'll also take some final comments from the audience as we plan for the future so we can hopefully continue to make this the best event it can possibly be.
