VIP Karaoke Party Meet & Greet – Manchester (UK) at Fab Cafe

October 8, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Nicky Brendon’s Happiness Runs Amok Tour 2019

*Manchester (UK)*

The Event: Trivia Q&A PLUS VIP Karaoke After Party

NICHOLAS BRENDON is an American Actor, Writer, and Artist traveling the world on his Happiness Runs Amok…because I give Amok Tour!

Best known for playing the role of “Xander Harris” on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and “Kevin Lynch” on Criminal Minds, he is offering a memorable experience for any Nicky and Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan!

A real chance to chat, get a hug, take photos, get memorabilia signed (or choose from one of his photos!), and ask all the questions you’ve always wanted to ask…nothing is off limits! Prepare yourself for an evening hanging with Nicky and other fans in a relaxed, judgement-free zone where everyone is welcome – but attendance is limited so get your tickets now before it’s too late!

What’s The Nicky Experience?


Unlike a comic con, there are no long lines, no big crowds, and you spend the entire event in the company of Nicky (minus smoke breaks). Also note he is 100% authentic, unscripted, uncensored, and spontaneous…not for the faint of heart. You will feel accepted, included, at ease, and have every opportunity to let your fandom flag fly!

If there are any questions, please email us, check FAQ’s, or read his reviews!

What’s A Trivia q&a?

It’s a trivia game put together to keep Nicky answering and asking questions and for you to do the same! Nicky and the crowd will have to act out, shout out, and draw your favorite moments from films Nicky’s been in! Most content will be centered around Buffy the Vampire Slayer, however you will have the opportunity to see clips from multiple films and shows he’s acted in and have the opportunity to ask questions of your own. Nicky will also be trying to memorize the names of everyone who interacts and he will be tested at the end of the game. We will have special prizes for participation.


Whether you like to sing in front of a crowd or where no one else can listen, Karaoke with Nicky is a blast! He loves to sing and to put on a good show. You’ll feel right at home even if you prefer to watch and enjoy. Check the DISCUSSION tab on the Facebook Event Page for more detailed information.
