Featured Panelists

Ohayocon is proud to host amazing panelists! We’ve invited some of the best in the Ohio panel scene to perform for our attendees. We’ll keep this page updated with this year’s featured panelists as we announce them. You can get announcements on our social media (@Facebook most places) and right on our home page.

KickPunch-QWOP is an American paneling octet which began as a trio. The group has been entertaining fans at Ohayocon (and various other conventions) for eleven years, presenting panels often to standing-room-only crowds. They are best known for the Ohayocon Game Show and The Weirdest Games You’ve Never Played. None of them have ever been arrested. The group had 3 consecutive Platinum albums along with 6 top 10 hit songs on the Billboard Hot 100 during the 1990s including “Just Kickin’ It”, “Who Can I Run To”, “The Arms of the One Who Loves You”, and “My Little Secret” [citation needed].

From its humble beginnings as a room party at Atlanta-area conventions, Anime Hell has grown to be a room-filling event for hundreds at a time at conventions across the country, and even into Canada! Produced and hosted by several mortals worthy enough to survive compilation of these video morsels into crowd-pleasing(?) extravaganzas, no two shows are ever completely the same, and even have their own regional flavors. Presenting Anime Hell at Ohayocon for what feels like the fiftieth time (it’s really been since 2003) are Jeff “Rich Lather” Tatarek and Ryan “Gavv” Gavigan, returning for two shows: one chock full of classic clips, the other stuffed with as much new high weirdness as the world can belch forth. (please note: Anime Hell may contain less than 100% actual anime. Deal with it)
