So we announced this on our show for last week, but in case anyone didn’t see it, we are launching a project called #BonnarooGethard. It’s gonna be fun and also stupid and also interesting. Here are the details -
- Bonnaroo has asked us to perform The Chris Gethard Show at their legendary festival. We are very psyched about it.
- In an effort to keep things interesting and interactive and to test the idea of community, we are going to do something pretty nuts – I am going to fly to Los Angeles the last week of May. I’ll have no money and no phone. I have to get to our show at Bonnaroo by June 7th. That’s an average of over 200 miles a day. This will be impossible without YOUR HELP.
- How can you help? First off, email [email protected] and let us know if you’re down to help, where you live, and what you’re willing to do to be a part of things. We’ll try to make it to your town so we can connect with you and take you up on your offer. You’ll wind up in our videos and in my personal eternal gratitude forever. The more people that get involved in this the more potential for it to be successful (and also SAFE).
- Follow the Twitter hashtag #BonnarooGethard. I will have access to Twitter on the road, so I will be able to keep everyone updated about how the trip is going, where it’s taken us, and any obstacles that we’ve run into. So you can follow this whole thing pretty much in real time, and if you realize I’m crossing through your neck of the woods, you will hopefully choose to lend a helping hand and become a part of this ride.
- Subscribe to Bonnaroo365 on YouTube. We’ll be posting videos from the road every day – Soltys, Hot Dog, the World’s Greatest Dancer, Bananaman, and JD will be following me to document this thing and will have multiple daily videos up to show the ups and downs of how things are going. Keep your eyes on those videos and subscribe to the channel so you can immerse yourself in the #BonnarooGethard experience.
All goodwill, help, and positive vibes are appreciated. I am so excited to get out there on the road. I anticipate a lot of physical and emotional breakdown happening, but I think this will be a great test of human kindness, a great test of how much virtual communities can exist in the real world, and hopefully a lot of fun for anyone who chooses to follow along and/or get involved.
