FuMPFest Panels and Special Events

Panels

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. These events are outlined below.

Opening Ceremonies

Gotta start somewhere, right? Welcome to FuMPFest! We'll be introducing the guests, 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.

Friday: 3pm

The 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. For more information please visit LoganAwards.com

Friday: 8pm

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.

Saturday: 12am

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.

Saturday: 10am

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! Got a dumb parody idea you want to perform? We'll be taking entries from the audience at the event. Be ready to go!

Saturday: 1pm

Q&A with GOH

FuMPFest 2017 guest of honor Henry Phillips will be on hand to answer whatever questions you may have.

Saturday: 3pm

Autographs: Henry Phillips

Henry Phillips will be signing autographs from 4:00 to 6:00 on Saturday afternoon. Each guest gets one free autograph with their registration. Have them sign your program book, merchandise, favorite body part, whatever!

Saturday: 4pm

Movie Time

This year FuMPFest is proud to present Punching Henry, the follow-up to Henry Phillip's fantastic mocumentary Punching the Clown.

Hapless satirical songwriter Henry Phillips is lured to LA when a veteran TV producer decides to make a show about the life of a loser.

Saturday: 10pm

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.

Sunday: 12am

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 TV's Kyle, Holy Bongwater, Carrie Dahlby, Lauren Mayer, Timm McCoy, and more!

Sunday: 10am

Live Podcasts

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 The Frantics Podcast hosted by Peter Wildman with other members of The Frantics appearing by teleconference!

Sunday: 1pm

Closing Ceremonies

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, see a special performance by The Library Bards, perform another special song or two, and say goodbye. We'll also take some final comments from the audience as we plan for next year so we can hopefully continue to make this the best event it can possibly be.

Sunday: 3pm
