There is a saying that a rolling d20 gathers no moss. Or something like that. And with that being said, it’s time to get rolling.
The live shows at comedy clubs and theaters are currently on a holiday season hiatus. Plans are being tinkered with to launch an actual-play stream program. And shows have begun to pop up at tabletop roleplaying game conventions. So… Let’s talk about podcasts.
There is a Catacombs & Comedians podcast that features audio from select live performances at comedy clubs. But that’s not enough. It’s high time for a dedicated podcast for Catacombs & Comedians. Not just audio from live shows or streaming programs but an ongoing actual-play podcast featuring stand-up comedians playing Dungeons & Dragons.
So, we’re looking for four stand-up comedians who would like to be part of an ongoing Catacombs & Comedians flavored Dungeons & Dragons campaign to be featured as a podcast that we’re going to call the Catacombs & Comedians PodVentureCast. If any current stand-up comedians are reading this and are interested in being a part of this podcast, here’s what you need to know…
- We’re looking for comedians who do actual stage time in comedy clubs, including open mics.
- Knowledge of how to play Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition is required. It doesn’t need to be expert knowledge, but an understanding of the basic rules will make the podcast better for everyone.
- A decent computer with a quality microphone and a stable internet connection.
- A schedule that permits to be able to commit to a weekly (or biweekly) somewhat fluid timetable to record episodes on a regular basis. Recording sessions will be approximately two hours and scheduled at a time that works for all participating.
- The tone of the game will follow along the lines of the Catacombs & Comedians tagline, “Making a joke of the ‘World’s Greatest Roleplaying Game.'” Which means that it’s not going to be a serious D&D campaign.
If you’re a stand-up comedian who wants to play a comedic Dungeons & Dragons ongoing campaign on a podcast, send an email to [email protected], and we’ll talk.
