Watch Party Meet & Greet – VampCon Chicago (IL)

Nicky Brendon’s Not Your Typically Average Meet & Greet *VampConChicago, (IL)*

The Event: Watch Party

Actor NICHOLAS BRENDON, “Xander” – Buffy the Vampire Slayer, “Kevin Lynch” – Criminal Minds, is traveling the world on his Happiness Runs Amok…because I give Amok Tour!

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 a evening hanging with Nicky and other fans in a relaxed, judgement-free zone where everyone is welcome…. Except attendance is limited (25-30 on average) so don’t procrastinate!

IT’S NOT YOUR TYPICALLY AVERAGE MEET & GREET! No long lines, no big crowds, and you spend the entire time of the 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 right to let your fandom flag fly… If there are any questions, please email us, check FAQs, or check his REVIEWS!

In most cases we will be watching one or two episodes of television (usually the Buffy musical, “Once More, with Feeling”, wins the vote and possibly one additional episode or film) which may contain mature subject matter.

Please keep in mind that Nicky is a creative person and the majority of the event is casual in nature and meant to feel like a gathering of friends. In addition to the scheduled activities, the night could include spontaneous singing/karaoke, original poetry, creative art, photography, and improv acting or writing. This material is not rehearsed and due to its spontaneous nature, it isn’t edited.

These may be used by Slightly Askew LLC for marketing and publicity in our publications, on our website and in social media or in any third party publication.

Take the Survey

Planning for 2019 has just begun and these are only the first few dates. Be sure to take the survey to help plan the rest of the year.

Comic Cons

Nicky loves going to local conventions and meeting fans but his appearances are based on the requirements of each event. The best bet is to e-mail your local comic con and let them know you’d like Nicky to be invited as a guest and get all your friends to do the same!

(Let them know they can e-mail Theresa@NickyBrendon.com to inquire about his availability.)

Meet & Greets

Nicky tries to do Meet & Greet events in as many places as possible. Often he pairs them with comic cons due to travel requirements. However if there is enough interest in a location we can find a way to make it work. Typically it takes a minimum of 10 people for an event to be scheduled around a comic con and 20 people to travel to a specific location separately from a comic con.

If you think your city would be a good place for Nicky to visit, the best way is to try to get the word out to the local Buffy fans!

Suggestions:

  1. Create a video – Make a short video telling us why we should come to your city. Enlist local fans. Contact your local bowling alley or karaoke place and see if you can video tape or take pictures. Work with your local chamber of commerce to spread the word. You don’t have to appear on camera if you don’t want. Be creative! You can e-mail the link to the video to Theresa@NickyBrendon.com and we might share it on Nicky’s social media to help get other local fans to vote for your city.
  2. Contact local venues – Ask around at local comic book shops or nerd hang-out and see if they would want to sponsor an event.
  3. Contact local comic cons – A comic con in you area might want to invite Nicky as a guest and host a special event as part of the weekend.
  4. Organize other fans – Find like-minded fans in the area and see if they are able to help out.
