Shipwrecked Comedy, a YouTube channel that does a lot of literary focused videos, has just released a Kickstarter for their newest project. And it looks amazing.
First some history. About two years ago, Shipwrecked had a series called A Tell Tale Vlog. Basically, it’s a video blog starring Sean Persaud as Edgar Allan Poe, and Sinead Persaud as Lenore in which Poe documents his woes in both love and writing, much to the annoyance of Lenore, his resident ghost. It’s freaking hilarious and if you haven’t seen, you should check it out.
Now, the same group is creating a new series with the same characters called Edgar Allan Poe’s Murder Mystery Dinner Party. Also a part of the cast is Mary Kate Wiles (Lizzie Bennet Diaries, I Ship It), Ashley Clements (Lizzie Bennet Diaries, Muzzled the Musical), Joey Richter (School of Thrones, Muzzled the Musical), and Blake Silver (The Merry Wives of Windsor, THOR). And more are to come as every $5,000 dollars given, a new character is revealed.
So far, there is Poe, Lenore, Annabele Lee, Ernest Hemingway, Charlotte Bronte, and H.G. Wells. Who doesn’t want to see these guys in the midst of a murder mystery?
If you’re a big book nerd, or if you’re just a nerd in generally, you should check out Shipwrecked’s channel on YouTube, and then consider giving to this awesome project! I sure did!
