As I usually do when I post about a crowdfunding effort, I need to preface this with a warning: Just because I am posting about a Kickstarter project, that is not an invitation to open the floodgates for more crowdfunding pitches. Seriously, every single time I post about a Kickstarter or IndieGoGo, I will get a dozen+ crappy pitches in my inbox by the next morning, so please – before you submit a crowdfunding effort, read this. Again, read this.
Bruce Campbell wants your money. This time, it’s to make a new season of LAST FAN STANDING, the pop culture game show that Campbell (THE EVIL DEAD, BURN NOTICE, OLD SPICE) hosts himself. Filmed on-location and “live-to-tape” at Wizard World Comic Con events around the country, LAST FAN STANDING gave con-goers “the chance to prove their status as the ultimate Fanboy or Fangirl for a global internet audience on CONtv.” If you want Season Two, here’s your chance to be involved – just announced at a media event at the in-progress Wizard World Comic Con Chicago.
From the Official Announcement:
The campaign is filled with “Bruce-centric” perks – including signed Comics, Lunchboxes, Personalized Voicemails, and even a bowling party with Bruce – the Kickstarter campaign is out to create an even more raucous season of “Last Fan Standing.” Currently the campaign is set to run from August 20th through September 21st.
A second season of LAST FAN STANDING – created by Bruce Campbell and Pop Quiz Entertainment – promises to be even more laugh-filled and harrowing than the first; in addition to the nail-biting speed rounds and each episode’s climactic “Final Confrontation,” the series’ producers promise exciting new rounds, even more playful badgering from Bruce, and possibly a cameo or two from some of the geek world’s biggest names. As Bruce would say, it promises to be…groovy.
Watch: PSYCHOSTICK’s tribute to Bruce:
What won’t change is the ability of Wizard World Comic Con attendees to be a part of the show. Using a proprietary audience response system, LAST FAN STANDING picks its contestants from among everyone who shows up to play; prove your knowledge of Sci-Fi, Horror, Fantasy, and Superheroes by answering our pre-game questions, and you too can be up on stage with Bruce…though if you choke in front of the cameras – or your buzzer skills are lacking – you’re going right back down to your seat. Only the truest fan can be…the Last Fan Standing.
With the help of fans who get involved in the Kickstarter campaign, the next season of LAST FAN STANDING will feature an exciting new set, improved audio and video, and – if it’s even possible – a more stunning wardrobe for Bruce.
