This August, popular novelty family of products Cards Against Humanity will bring back Concert Against Humanity, a night of comedy and music, at the country’s largest gaming event, Gen Con.
Last year’s event sold out Indianapolis’ largest concert venue, The Murat Theater at Old National Center, and was cited by fans as the highlight of Gen Con 2015.
This year’s two-hour show will feature live performances from Eugene Mirman (Bob’s Burgers), Aparna Nancherla (Womanhood), Jonathan Coulton (JoCo Cruise, Portal), Molly Lewis (the internet), Paul and Storm (Despicable Me 2), and more surprise guests from the Chicago comedy scene. The show is open to both Gen Con attendees and the general public.
“We heard from many fans that Concert Against Humanity provided a welcome distraction from the crushing misery of their everyday lives,” said Cards Against Humanity Events Director Trin Garritano. “Although I personally did not enjoy myself,” she added.
Tickets start at $40 and are available now at ConcertAgainstHumanity.com. The concert will take place on Friday, August 5th and is expected to sell out
“Last year’s Concert Against Humanity was the funniest thing the human mind can withstand without completely shattering,” said Paul Sabourin before promising, “this year will be twice as funny."
The concert will include a major giveaway: one lucky attendee will win free tickets and a balcony cabin on JoCo Cruise 2017 (JoCoCruise.com).
“Honestly I’m just doing this to promote my cruise,” said Jonathan Coulton.
Concert attendees will also receive a swag bag with show exclusives and new products from Cards Against Humanity, Magic: The Gathering, Field Notes, and more.
“We’re doing this again?” said Cards Against Humanity co-creator Eli Halpern. “Why would we do this again?”
“If this doesn’t sell out, I am definitely going to be fired,” added Cards Against Humanity Community Director Jenn Bane. “Please buy tickets, I’m begging you.”
The Chicago-based card game is known for their lighthearted stunts, including creating a post-apocalyptic survival kit for Donald Trump’s inevitable presidency, forming a full-ride scholarship for women studying science, and creating an alternate cut of Captain America: Civil War which contains over twenty minutes of penetrative gay sex.
