Anime Nightclub / Richard Epcar Roast

Friday night, 7pm-10pm. Room: LP2

Richard Epcar Join us Friday night for 3 hours of offbeat and uncensored fun, with a raging pack of veteran voice actors and a cash bar on hand to loosen things up. Members of the voiceover (VO) community will also be in attendance, to watch and mingle and maybe even get involved. Audience participation is encouraged!

Due to mature content and limited seating, adult-verified wristbands will be required from 8pm-10pm, and Roast tickets will be required from 9pm-10pm. There is no additional charge for these events, instead we ask that attendees consider donating to the Roastee's Charity when reserving their Roast tickets online with event ticket registration. Note: Please read the Charity information before donating.

If you are only interested in this event and not the convention, you can designate your PMX badge as a Roast-only badge to be picked up at the Security Station next to the Cash Bar in the hallway outside our room. To choose this option, enter "WILL CALL" for Address Line 1 on your registration form instead of a street address. You will receive an email confirmation if you gave an email address, but not a registration postcard and your badge will NOT be available to pick up at PMX Registration.

See our news item on for a coupon code that reduces the price of a Friday-only Badge to $15. Register a group of 5 or more together online and your per person cost drops to $11! To take advantage of this, register online at any time but don't pay yet. Once you have reserved your Roast tickets, you can pay for everything all at once from event ticket registration. Online reservations for Roast Tickets will open on Tuesday, Nov. 1st at 8 PM.

7:00pm: panel — Presented by Harmony Gold
7:30pm: Q&A & Voice Actor Autographs — Hosted by Harmony Gold
8:00pm: Anime Nightclub / Voice Actors Uncensored (18+) — Hosted by Bryan Dowdle (Lancer)

Something of a cross between a "Cabaret" event at a Science Fiction convention and a "Career Retrospective" panel of veteran voice actors, this panel is ultimately what our fans and voice actors want it to be. Very loosely based on a typical Q&A panel, rambling on the part of our (hopefully well lubricated by this point) panelists will be tolerated, nay, it will be encouraged.

9:00pm: PMX Charity Roast of Sir Richard Epcar (18+) — Facebook Event Page

In the tradition of the classic Dean Martin roasts, PMX has invited the Anime voice actor community to barbecue one of their own -- although if you do actually smell something burning, it might be the aftermath of the Asian Food Challenge down the hall.

Image Charity Information: Mr. Epcar has chosen Lupus LA, the West Coast division of the S.L.E. Lupus Foundation, as his designated charity. Lupus LA promotes lupus research, awareness, and education, and serves the needs of people with lupus and their families in Los Angeles County. We ask that you donate in one of three ways:
  1. Online when you reserve your Roast tickets. Options of $5, $10, $20, and $25 are provided. PMX will remit a single check to the charity with a list of everyone who donated and their amounts. We will also provide address information, so if you chose the WILL CALL option please enter your street address in Address Line 2 if you want us to pass it to the charity. Because this is considered a third party donation by the IRS, it is not tax-deductible even if you get a letter of thanks from the charity. This is why we are only offering small dollar amounts with this option.
  2. Cash tip jar in person during the Roast. We will have a large tip jar by the door for anonymous cash donations similar to the one which raised $101 for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital at last year's Roast.
  3. Directly to the charity via their Donation system. In this case, we ask that you choose the Tribute Gift option and enter the following details:
    • This donation is in honor of: Richard Epcar
    • For the occasion of: PMX Charity Roast of Sir Richard Epcar
    • Please send acknowledgement to: Pacific Media Expo Roast, 909 Marina Village Pkwy #660, Alameda, CA 94501
PMX and Mr. Richard Epcar sincerely thank you for your generosity and any other charitable support you have given.
