I just returned from the JoCoCruise, a 2,000-person, week-long nerd convention on a cruise ship! We had a fantastic time and had many opportunities to perform and host with our fellow guest. Here are some of the things I got to do:

  • Hosted an "in conversation with" panel with Rebecca Sugar, creator of Steven Universe
  • Performed a comedy essay as part of Cameron Esposito & Rhea Butcher's variety show
  • Collaborated in musical numbers on stage with Molly Lewis and Jonathan Coulton
  • DJ'd (with my bandmate Aubrey Turner) an extremely fun Prom Dance Party
  • Played two shows as The Doubleclicks on the main stage with the Workjuice Improvisers and Jackie Kashian
  • Hosted an episode of my comedy podcast "Gosh Darn Fiasco" with special guests Gail Simone and Jackie Kashian

The JoCoCruise is a fantastic showcase of talent from all around the nerd world and we were honored to be a part of it! I'd love to seize more opportunities to host panels and Q&As in the future.
