Pendulous Breasts Quarterly Presents: Madame Bainbridge's Compendium Of Primo Dong (Abridged) is the second volume of a print 'zine of humor writing, featuring writers from The Onion, The Colbert Report, Adult Swim, 30 Rock, Community, Kroll Show, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, and cartoonists from The New Yorker, among many other contributors. We would like to fund the printing of a high-quality (such that the book itself is an aesthetically pleasing objet d'art), 1,000 copy run of this publication, as well as a digital version that will be compatible with iPad, Kindle, and other e-readers.

To celebrate the release of the 'zine, a party will be held in New York City, featuring comedy and music. The release party for the first issue of the publication featured— among other performers—comedians Michael Che, Todd Barry, and Matt Koff, as well as chanteuse Kelli Scarr.

Here is the Kickstarter Prize Story, in which the name of the highest contributor will be printed:

The video was directed by Nick Gallo, and edited by Maxime Simonet and Sascha Stanton-Craven. The song is "Wax Face" by Thee Oh Sees.

Risks and challenges

The main challenge lies in the funding of the project itself. The majority of the material that will appear in the 'zine has been already been solicited for and compiled, and is in the process of being edited and designed for publication. Additionally, we have already lined up a printer in Michigan, and are looking into the best solution for hosting the digital version of the 'zine.
