FuMPFest Panels and Special Events


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. This time we are planning to celebrate the 20th anniversary of AlCon, the Weird Al fan convention where many of us first met each other. More information to come!

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: 6pm

The 8th 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. For more information please visit LoganAwards.com

Friday: 9pm

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

AlCon's 20th Anniversary

2018 is the 20th anniversary of the first ever "Weird Al" fan convention, AlCon 98. Produced by Amanda Cohen, this event was a landmark in the lives of many of the FuMP people. It was a day of concerts, interviews, and special events, and "Weird Al" Yankovic himself made a surprise appearance. Amanda will be on hand to answer questions, show photos and videos, and recount the fun.

Saturday: 1pm

Q&A with GOH

FuMPFest 2018 guest of honor The Four Postmen will be on hand—all five of them—to answer whatever questions you may have.

Saturday: 4pm

Autographs: The Four Postmen

The Four Postmen will be signing autographs from 5:00 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: 5pm

The FuMP Game Show

How's your FuMP knowledge? Are you the ultimate FuMP fan? Put your knowledge to the test against other audience members in this Jeopardy-like game show which takes cues from several popular 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 FuMP fan!

Saturday: 11pm

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 Devo Spice, the great Luke Ski, Insane Ian, Jeff Reuben, and more!

Sunday: 10am

Dementia Smackdown Wrestling

Join Commissioner J.P. Tuesday and Duke Flyboy DuJour as they host the latest entry of Dementia Smackdown Wrestling, where virtual wrestlers of your favorite FuMP artists fight it out in the ring in a 20-person free-for-all event!

Sunday: 11:30am

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!

Sunday: 2pm

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, 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: 4pm
