Who are The Damsels of Dorkington?
We are a 4-person comedy group with big goals we want to achieve with your help! We perform at conventions all across the country doing improvisational comedy, and spreading "Dork Pride" wherever we go! You can also find us posting silly videos on YouTube that range from sketch comedy to song parodies. Or just us doing the dorky things we love to do.
Why do The Damsels need a Kickstarter?
Little known fact: Comedy is expensive! We are traveling to various conventions all across the country, and we typically don't get much help (if any) from the conventions themselves. That leaves us stuck with pricey airline tickets, rental cars, and hotel fees. We want to continue coming to your cities (and hopefully others!) to make you laugh and discuss all things nerdy, but we need your help to do that!
We are placing our goal at $4,000, which will help us get to Seattle in March and Indianapolis in August. Anything we earn beyond that will be put to the creation of sketch videos, and recording costs for upcoming songs. If we earn enough, we would also like to apply to perform at other conventions around the country that were previously not an option to us due to travel costs!
Isn't this what you guys do for a living?
Nope! We wish that were the case, but unfortunately, it isn't. The Damsels of Dorkington is a hobby for 4 people who love to make others laugh, and we all have day jobs so that we can pay our personal bills. We typically don't get much money from the conventions themselves, but what we make from donations and merchandise goes directly back to funding the next trip or video shoot.
What conventions are you attending?
Right now our schedule looks like this:
March 16 - 18 - All-Con, Dallas
March 24 - 25 - Planet Comicon, Kansas City
March 30 - April 1 - Emerald City Comicon, Seattle
May 5 - New World Comics, Oklahoma City
August 3 - 5 - GlitchCon, Bentonville
August 16 - 19 - GenCon, Indianapolis
October 6 - 7 - G.A.M.E., Springfield, MO
We'd love to add more conventions to this list if we raise MORE than our goal!!
Why is there a guy in a group called Damsels?
Because he's the only one willing to put on a dress!
Is Rissy on drugs?
We can neither confirm nor deny these allegations...
We appreciate any amount you are willing to give, as anything helps! Also, please pass this Kickstarter along to anyone you know that enjoys comedy and the pursuit of all thinks nerd!! ...Also, poop jokes.
