Guest Announcement: Uncle YO

We are excited to announce our first Guest of Honor, Uncle YO!

Karl “Uncle Yo” Custer is New York’s premiere geek-specific comedian, having appeared at over 100 anime, comic book and video game conventions. His self-proclaimed style of “rantcore” combines long-form stories with motivational rhyming couplets. Panel leader, emcee, Off-Broadway playwright, puppeteer and podcaster, Yo show-runs his original Youtube’s fantasy sitcom with puppets, Dungeon Crawlers. You can listen to his latest project on Youtube, a bi-weekly narrative horror podcast called Chroniclers of Darkness.

His entire 4-CD collection is available through Amazon, iTunes, and streaming on Spotify. He’ll also have DVD’s on him exclusively for No Brand Con. Alternatively, you can spot him in several cameos alongside Channel Awesome, where he was featured alongside the Nostalgia Critic, Demo Reel, and the channel’s 5th anniversary feature, DragonBored. For older kids, you can see him as corporate, flower-loving super-villain Jeff Regan on Youtube’s suburban super-hero series, Schnoz-Man and HolePunch: the Justice Lease.
