MUSIC GUEST OF HONOR HENRY PHILLIPS
Also, DR. DEMENTO and “UNDER THE SMOGBERRY TREES”
DOCUMENTARY FILM ABOUT “THE DR. DEMENTO SHOW”
CREW WILL BE ATTENDING/FILMING AT MARSCON 2014!
Since the late 90’s, comedian & musician Henry Phillips has been performing his brilliant satirical songs at comedy clubs all across the nation. As well the nationally syndicated radio program “The Bob & Tom Show”, he has also appeared on “Comedy Central Presents” and “Jimmy Kimmel Live”. His award winning semi-autobiographical comedy film “Punching The Clown” is currently available on Netflix and iTunes. He’s released a handful of albums over the years, which include such hit songs from “The Dr. Demento Show” as “On The Shoulders Of Freaks”, “Talking Again”, “Girlfriend”, “Alone Again”, “L. A. Dream”, and fan favorites “Sweet Little Blossom Of Mine”, “Fresh Out Of Blues”, “Guitar Pill”, and “Jerkin’ Around”. We’re very excited to have Henry Phillips as MarsCon 2014’s Music Guest Of Honor.
We are also incredibly psyched to announce that the crew from “Meep Morp Studios” who are currently producing the documentary film “Under The Smogberry Trees: The True Story Of Dr. Demento And Mr. Hansen” will be attending and filming at MarsCon 2014. MarsCon’s comedy music track, named the ‘Dementia Track’ after former Guest of Honor Dr. Demento, has grown to become the biggest annual gathering of Dr. Demento Show fans and performers over the past decade, and we’re ready to show the Meep Morp crew how we celebrate our comedy music fandom! They’ll be doing a Q&A on the main stage and talking about production on the Demento documentary, so get your questions ready!
UPDATE 11/5/13: DR. DEMENTO will also be attending MARSCON 2014!
Meep Morp Studios is bringing the good Doctor back to his home town of Minneapolis to film him where he grew up. So when they do their MarsCon 2014 main stage Q&A about the making of the documentary, Dr. Demento will be joining them on stage for your fan questions! He will also have a scheduled autograph session, so bring your LPs, CDs, and other mad music memorabilia. Yes, 10 Years after he was our Guest Of Honor, Dr. Demento is returning for a visit and to join in the fun of the MarsCon Dementia Track!
The Music Guest Of Honor Henry Phillips as well as Meep Morp Studios’ and Dr. Demento’s attendance are being brought to MarsCon 2014 due to a very generous donation from the comedy music streaming internet station, Dementia Radio, in particular this year from benefactor Wayne ‘WildCard’ Garmil. So please thank him and Dementia Radio for sponsoring MarsCon’s Music Guests Of Honor for 3 years running.
