There Will Be Drinking! And Possibly Girls!

by Art Fag City on June 12, 2007 Events


It’s still unclear whether male cewebrity status attracts or repells women, but I tend to think the term web geek has been “reclaimed” in recent years to represent pasty white hipsters boys sporting the after glow of an LCD screen, in addition to say, men like this.

So maybe my male readers will meet some girls at ROFL!, an Internet gong show of sorts at Joe’s Pub Friday, June 22nd, but we don’t make any promises. Initially inspired by Tube Time, ROFL! expands upon the concept of a youtube competition, inviting eight bloggers and artists to enter with their finest Internet finds and creations. The audience determines the winner of each round of submissions, performer Reggie Watts will rap about it. Comedy duo Slovin and Allen will make jokes about it.

You’re reading about this event, not because I’m participating, but because AFC has provided “additional production” for Joe’s Pub with Jon Williams of Wizard is Hungry, and John Seroff of Tofu Hut. Basically this means I helped find some awesome competitors, which I’ve listed below. I happen to think a ticket to this event would be money well spent.

This event is presented with The Onion and Paper Thin Walls.

Competitors include:

Josh Fruhlinger of Comics Curmudgeon and Wonkette

Cintra Wilson of Salon and Dregublog

Joe Garden of The Onion (the voice of Jim Anchower and Jackie Harvey), Vote Joe Garden! and Monkeywire

Michelle Collins of You Can’t Make It Up and VH1’s Best Week Ever

Andrew Baron, co-creator and producer of Rocketboom

Marisa Olson, artist / editor / curator of

Stu VanAirsdale of The Reeler

Charles Broskoski of Supercentral
