The Fun Palace Radio Variety Show
is a series of live-to-tape podcast variety shows
, hosted by Jacob Zimmer with the Fun Palace Players and lots of special guests.
We are raising the money to own the means of production!
Owning the means of production (in this case microphones and recording gear) means that the money we make can be distributed to the people doing the labour.
AND YOU CAN HELP US OWN IT!
(Yes, Marxists can have sponsors too.)
Owning the means of production for the Fun Palace will help us to these crucial things:
- Create and rehearse
anytime with microphones
whenever and where ever we wish to on a drop of a dime.
- Create more podcasts.
- Host workshops
with the mics and gear to teach people how to make their own idiosyncratic performance podcasts…
…because we believe that good ideas are entertaining
. And that pleasure and critique require each other
In addition to our thanks, you will receive a charitable receipt for your taxes.
If you’d like your name carved on a microphone, you can - for the cost of the mic* we will forever call the mic after your first name, or the first name of someone in your life.
