There Will Be a Second ‘Community’ Convention This Year


In February, fans held the first-ever CommuniCon, a convention for the sitcom Community, at a community college in Los Angeles. Even though it hasn’t been a year since the first CommuniCon, the event organizers are already planning a second one for October. February’s event featured writer and actor panels and a speech/Q&A from then-unemployed Community creator Dan Harmon. CommuniCon should be a more joyous event this year now that Harmon is back on the show (although Donald Glover is taking a reduced role), rather than living in exile. CommuniCon 2 is currently planned for October 19-20th in Los Angeles, and you can follow the event’s Tumblr and Twitter for updates and more info. October 19th seems like a bad day for this because that’s when Tenacious D is holding their  LA musical comedy mega-event, Festival Supreme, which’ll feature Zach Galifianakis, Bob Odenkirk and David Cross, Sarah Silverman, Adam Sandler, and tons more. But hey, I don’t organize Community fan festivals.
