You mean the audience talks over you about character arcs and settings, you sit there dumbfounded waiting until it's your turn to speak, then the audience leaves and report back to their superiors that you weren't proactive?

Sounds like a gas!

Damn John, it's so tough not to live in the states!
I would really love if you'd put out some of the rare spumco toons, for me, and all of those who couldn't be there...

I've heard about your pitches, John. Apparently you have a habit of grabbing people by the throats and screaming at them when you REALLY get into the idea.
If I lived in the states I'd do everything in my power to have you flip the **** out and pitch the bajeesus out of me!

Can't someone record it and put it up on the web so the rest of us can enjoy it?

The instant I win the lottery and hit it big, I'm calling you up so you can come straight to my house and pitch to me personally.

With enough randomly found instantaneous cash, I'd be all but willing to produce and completely finance a new animation studio, and just leave everything else up to whoever looked experienced enough to have the best chance at making me my money back with their entertaining cartoon fare. (I wouldn't expect to make the money back, since owning the animation studio would be enough. At least as long as I could still afford the animators...)

I'd be looking to make feature-length stuff too, so you better have some damn good pitches ready if it ever happens.

I was there and Comic Con on Thursday. I made plans to make sure I was in the room to see John K. Infact I sat thorough 4 other programs before seeing John K. I was 3rd row from the front.

It was amazing John K is so down to earth. The cartoons that were shown were excellent. The George Liquor American was just as good as any stand-up routine. John K tells an amazing story and his voice to accent the story was hope adult swim picks up the show it looks to be classic John K and I for one would watch every week.

Seeing the clips of the old cartoons makes me remember just how classic Ren & Stimpy are

Dear Mr. John K:

I have the video of the pitch, I shot it myself when I attended your panel. I edited the footage to just the pitch, I do pan back and fourth to show the pictures that go along with it. I believe that someone contacted you about it already, as I have posted it to youtube. Let me know if it's something you can use for this site, love the pitch and would love to share it with more fans.
