The ‪‎FuMP‬ has launched a new Kickstarter to help pay for the Logan Awards statuettes

The 2014 Logan Awards are just over 2 months away. Soon the Jurors will have all sub­mit­ted their picks for the fun­ni­est songs of 2013, and once our chair “Blasted Bill” Putt has tab­u­lated the win­ners, it will be time for him to order the engraved ‘Robot Cat” stat­uettes, and those things cost boku-bucks. That’s why we’ve launched this Kick­starter, to pay for this year’s Logan Awards stat­ues, and if we hit that goal, even more to save up a ‘bat­tle chest’ of funds to pay for future year’s statues.

Some of the prizes for donat­ing include: an album of live music recorded at Luke Ski’s pri­vate Kick­starter party event “LukeS­ki­Con 2013″, a video pre­sen­ta­tion of high­lights of live com­edy music per­for­mances per­formed at the first 3 “Logan Awards” cer­e­monies, a Logan Awards t-shirt, an appear­ance on the FuMP­cast, cus­tom made com­edy songs and house con­certs by Luke Ski, Devo Spice, Insane Ian, TV’s Kyle, Worm Quar­tet, Power Salad, Car­rie Dahlby, Phil John­son, Tony Gold­mark (song only), Eric Cole­man and Steve Goodie (house con­cert only).

This Kick­starter ends on May 14th, so please donate today, and please share this with all your friends online who love com­edy music!
