For those who didn’t see my tweet the other day, if you have suggestions for panels or activities at the next CommuniCon, let me know! I can’t promise anything, but I definitely want to know what you want to see and do at the next one.

Check out COOL COOL COOL: The CommuniCon 2 Experience, the BRAND NEW film by  Damien Barriga and Brittany Sterrett! Featuring original music by fans  Justin Crisostomo and Charles Vigilans! Spread it like the Greendale Fire of ‘03! Thank you all so much!

And while I’ve got you thinking about CommuniCon, if you’re interested in letting us use your original songs or music about or inspired by Community in the CommuniCon 2 documentary, please email me at communicon1 (at) gmail. We can’t pay you, sadly, (we’re not selling or otherwise making money off the doc) but you’d obviously get credited in the documentary.

Can’t believe it’s been a year since the first CommuniCon! My sincerest thanks to everyone who has attended or contributed or helped spread the word. With extra special crazytown bananapants thanks to those who trusted enough to attend the first one a year ago. Hope to see you all at the next one!

Story of why I’m crying!

My whole life I never had a lot of self-confidence. I never thought I was pretty. In fact, I thought I was very much the opposite of pretty, and had people in my life who confirmed just that. So as I grew up and had people tell me that I was pretty or cute or what have you, I couldn’t believe them. 

But then Community came out, and I, of course, loved the show. Then people started to tell me that I looked like Gillian Jacobs, who is stunning, gorgeous, and everything in between. And it might be shallow, but I felt like if people thought I look like her, who is so pretty, then I might not be so bad looking either. So I told her this, and just kinda started crying as I did so.

The best part was that she was telling me that she would have to kill me because only one person was allowed to have her face, but then I told her that because of her I finally feel good about my looks, she said that I could still live, as long as I wear her face proudly.

This was seriously the most amazing experience, and I can’t believe I just started to cry, but ever since people started telling me that we looked alike, I’ve been dying to meet her and just thank her, and I finally was able to. She is so sweet and so funny, and I’m just still in awe and still crying over being able to meet her.

This weekend Communies are turning the real October 19th into a celebration of our beloved show.

October 19th & 20th, Community fans are gathering in Los Angeles for Communicon — a weekend of panels, a flashmob & art show, plus an appearance by the man…

Not able to make it to CommuniCon? There are still plenty of ways to be involved!

Feast your ear-tongues (and eyeballs) on the memory pops contained within “Intro to Communal Convention,” the documentary about February’s first ever CommuniCon, by Damien Barriga and Brittany Sterrett. Annie Jeong also helped capture the footage at the event. All three donated their time and talents, and I cannot possibly express how grateful I am to all of them. Especially to Damien, who put in so very much work editing this documentary. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!

Enjoy the film (including the post-credits surprise), spread the word, and if you or anyone you know is inspired to attend the sequel, tickets are still available at


It’s October! Do you know what that means? COMMUNICON!

Now don’t be sad if you didn’t get tickets. You still can! You can still see the Writers Panel with Andy Bobrow, Tim Saccardo, Hilary Winston, and more! You can still participate in the Writers vs Fans Trivia Contest (and I think they are probably boning up following their humiliating defeat during the last con, so we could use all the help we can get)! You can still participate in the Costume Contest! You can still see the “No Small Parts” Panel with Charley Koontz (Neil), Danielle Kaplowitz (Vicki), David Neher (Todd), and more (my personal favorite from the last con)! You can still see the Q&A with the developers of Journey to the Center of Hawkthorne video game! AND YOU CAN STILL SEE DAN HARMON AND CHRIS McKENNA!

This is going to be an amazing experience for Community fans. I really hope you don’t miss it.

It’s going to be a great October 19th!

Listen to this lady!

Hi Gillian, I missed the Kickstarter campaign (rats!) and I plan on buying tickets, but I just wanted to know where/when I can get the official CommuniCon t-shirt? Thank-you, fellow human being!
communicon communicon Said:

Hi there! Excellent question.

Sadly, I actually don’t think we’ll have extras for sale at the convention this year. I ended up losing a lot of money on merchandise last time around, and since they were a reward on Kickstarter, and most people chose the $40 admission option rather than the $50 option (which included a t-shirt), I have to assume that most people attending aren’t interested in purchasing one at the event. So unfortunately it isn’t really worth the risk of ordering a lot of extras to try to sell. However, there may be a few. And I will have t-shirts from February’s CommuniCon available, for people interested in a keepsake from the first convention. 

In case I’m wrong, I am planning to collect the names/email addresses of people who ARE interested in a t-shirt, and if there’s enough interest, I’ll place another order.

And, actually, if enough of you out there tell me right now that I’m wrong, I’d consider taking orders now to have them ready for you at the convention.

Also, there will be some other merchandise available for purchase at the convention.
