National Lampoon is celebrating its 50th anniversary with some big announcements for fans, old and new, including a new series for Quibi and a membership program with Patreon.
To start, Quibi announced ‘LETS GO ATSUKO!’, a new Japanese game show from National Lampoon and PalmStar Media. Here’s how Quibi describes the show: LET’S GO ATSUKO! is a (woke) Japanese Game Show. Game Master and Comedian Atsuko Okatsuka leads two civilian contestants through the surreal universe inside her grandma’s fridge. In every episode, each contestant (perhaps unwisely) tells Atsuko one thing they love and one thing they fear. These facts can and will be used against them to create tailor-made challenges that test the players’ “street smarts.”
National Lampoon also just launched a Patreon account. Patreon is a membership platform where fans can join different membership tiers for exclusive content, discounts, and more. The National Lampoon Patreon will have three tiers at different price points. From access to the original magazine, Radio Hour and Lemmings archives, VIP tickets to shows and premieres, to the first-ever opportunity to join National Lampoon executives for development meetings, the comedy community will never be the same.
Evan Shapiro, President, National Lampoon added, “Five decades ago, our original magazine, Radio Hour and live shows created a community, that made fun of itself. Patreon gets the joke and is helping us reopen our twisted community to the world.”
“What fun to be the membership platform of choice for National Lampoon in order to bring exclusive content, events and merchandise to their extensive fan base,” said Kerri Pollard, SVP of Creator Relations & Marketing, Patreon. “Over the past 50 years, National Lampoon has fostered fantastic relationships with their fans by introducing them to comedy of all flavors and we are really excited to help develop those relationships even further with unique patron experiences.”
Each of the Patreon memberships offers exclusive access to new content from the next generation of National Lampoon comedians, including never-before-seen sketches and interviews. Additional levels offer even more immersive experiences including original National Lampoon-members only merchandise, invitations to VIP-only National Lampoon events, access to the iconic archives featuring five decades of twisted humor, first-look at Lampoon’s innovative development slate with trailers, teasers and scripts, only available to the Patreon members.
