November 3rd, 2013 -- Upper Darby, PA -- It is around this time that our nation finishes celebrating Halloween, then proceeds to let department stores forget that Thanksgiving exists, & then skips right to the retail holiday of Christmas. Do we find that this is right? Does it matter? Is it kinda funny? You bet your pocky-blessed heart it is! But not as hilarious as "the world's most extreme Asian culture fusion festival"'s 2 newest "Brand-New Debuts" for TAKII 16 ~Cho-ho-ho-cobo~, +2Comedy & Manly Battleships! "Greetings & salutations -- we are +2Comedy", says this compedy troupe's crew. "+2 Comedy is a unique comedy trio unlike anything currently in the stand-up comedy world. This original form of stand-up comedy is created solely for nerds, by nerds. We touch on (or gratuitously grope) such topics as Star Wars, video games, comic books, anime, D&D, & much more (limited only by....nothing ^_^). We are well-traveled festival & convention veterans who are ready to take on the challenge of The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitational!"
....or are they? The TRUE question for these kids is, are they truly ready for the passionate force that is the TAKII Family? The SAME TAKII Family that gave you "happy endings" with fun-noodles? The SAME TAKII Family that idolizes grown men in wedding dresses? The SAME TAKII Family that heralds heroes along the lines of a stilt-walking Jack Skellington, AX Idol champions, unwashed gaming masses, & J-Rock stars? When the forces that are +2Comedy & "the world's most extreme Asian culture fusion festival" collide, we guarantee that things will never....& we mean NEEEEEEEEVER....be the same....AGAIIIIIIIIN! For the official TAKII 16 bio for these crazies, visit their home on the official TAKII website: http://takii.pdnmz.com/guests-performers/brand-new-debuts.html#plus2comedy
Officially christened at Otakon 2012, the Manly Battleships is a fun-loving group of guys & gals that swashbuckles their way up & down the east coast convention circuit. A mixture of veteran panelists, seasoned con attendees, & rough-&-ready programmers, the Fleet splits its time between performing amazing feats of panelistic genius & partying it up with other people at the convention scene. Ever mindful of their powerful abilities, the Fleet covers everything from the seriously academic, to the fun gameshow, to the downright absurd. A perfect fit for The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitational indeed!
The Manly Battleships will be featured prominently in TAKII 16 ~Cho-ho-ho-cobo~'s slate of "X-Treme X-Posé" panels as a part of our "Omake Festivities". "We are always looking for way to take our fusion festival to the next level & the Many Battleships was the perfect group to bring on-board" says D-chan. "For many seasons we have had home-grown panelists take to our stage in their own quest for TAKII infamy. Now we kick things up a notch by inviting the professional hijinx of these panelists extraordinaire." And out of a possible 16+ panels the Manly Battleships were prepared to do, Team TAKII Coordinators had to whittle it down to their top 6 choices. "We've invited these con-panel swashbucklers to produce some of their best-known programs, including "Gameshow Impossibru", "Convention Survivor", "Dr. Strangedub", & much more (that must be seen to be believed). TAKII 16 can't come soon enough as we welcome the Many Battleships into the loving, passionate, glomping arms of the TAKII Family!"

Behind the scenes, The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitational has been working very hard to re-organize itself, thanks in large part to the continued support of its TAKII Family & Team TAKII Coalition of sponsors & affiliates. Just what kind of impact will this have on the immediate & long-term future of "the lil Asian-themed fusion festival that COULD & DID", you ask? It means increased community outreach, more entertainment engagements, a fortified leadership & staffing team, tweaked (NOT twerked ^_*) "Festivities", a perfect mix of home-grown & high-profile "Guests & Performers", & MUCH MORE! We would like to say that change comes easy, but we are firm believers that all things worth having in this fandom of ours (or life in general) don't come without a struggle; & it's those struggles that help us to appreciate that which we have more than ever before. As the debut of TAKII 16 ~Cho-ho-ho-cobo~ fast approaches, we will be peeling back even more layers on the shock & awe of what the world is about to experience from us this holiday season. Let's pack The Rotunda to full capacity for TAKII 16 & show this Greater Philadelphia area & beyond just how powerfully iconic we are & can be!! ^_^
