The Geek Media Expo (GMX), the Nashville area’s Next Generation Multi-Fandom exposition, is bringing teh funny to the world of geekdom on Friday, October 26th. The laughs strike back with the Geek Comedy Showcase II: Laugh Harder, part of the featured programming at GMX Volume IV. Featuring five of Middle Tennessee’s FINEST comedians, the Geek Comedy Showcase brings you the best in fandom humor! You WOULD buy this for a dollar!How to Audition: This year, GMX is going “high tech” via online video auditions! You will need to film a video (webcam videos are fine, just don’t be naked and creepy) to be posted to YouTube (or equivalent video hosting site) featuring YOUR best geek comedy material. The video must be 3 minutes or less.
What is geek comedy? If the content can be found at GMX, that’s what we want! Material focusing on comic books, sci-fi, fantasy, horror, science and technology, action figure collecting, video games, cartoons, Dungeons & Dragons, cosplaying, living in your parents’ basement…this is prime for the Geek Comedy Showcase. We’ve heard all the jokes before about your lack of athletic prowess, flailing marriage, lackluster sex life, inane traffic run-ins with the cops and arguments with the in-laws. Leave those jokes to the Muggles! GMX is the Geek Media Expo, and we are looking for a special brand of comedy and a special breed of comedian for this event. Once you have filmed your video, you will need to post it to YouTube or a similar site. Send us a link to the video. Do not send the video to us directly as an attachment.
Please email video links to: email@example.com.
Judging: A panel of four judges will be selected to rate your audition video based on a host of super secret variables. Not since the KFC recipe has a formula been so closely guarded. Just be funny. That’s all we ask.The Prize: Winners will receive up to 10 minutes of stage time to perform a comedy routine as part of the 2012 Geek Comedy Showcase. You and a guest of your choosing (imaginary friends welcome) will receive complimentary passes to GMX ($70 value). Please be mindful of the time for your comedy set. We run a very tight schedule at GMX and we simply cannot accommodate overruns.
