Lloyd Kaufman will Answer Fan Questions Live on Reddit for “Ask Me Anything” Wednesday, June 15th at 6:00 PM EDT!

 

Ask Lloyd Kaufman anything! Tell him anything! This Wednesday, June 15th at 6:00 PM EDT, Lloyd Kaufman is scheduled to answer questions from fans live through Reddit’s “Ask Me Anything” feature, it was announced today by Elizabeth D’Ambrosio, spokesperson for Troma Entertainment.
Kaufman will be available to offer inquiring Troma fans updates regarding his soon to be released magnum-opus movie, Return to Return to Nuke ‘Em High AKA Volume 2, along with news about other Troma titles, future projects and events. Trump and Hilary are also fair fame, as well as onanism.
Another new development in Tromaville likely to light up the Reddit “AMA” feed will be TROMA Now, Troma Entertainment’s unique subscription video-on-demand service that features world-premiere movies and exclusive content to subscribers, which was launched in late 2015.
Upcoming Troma events that will interest “AMA” participants include this summer’s 17th Annual TromaDance, Troma Entertainment’s free to submit/free to attend annual Film Festival that will be held at the Paper Box in Brooklyn this July 29th and 30th, 2016. The Fest comes as a part of The TROMAmerican Summer 2016~ Festival of Free!, a no-cover  Troma themed party featuring music, movies and live art, set for three Thursday nights this summer at Lucky 13 Saloon in Brooklyn, NY.
The  “Where’s Lloyd-O?” followers out there might like details about Lloyd Kaufman’s scheduled appearances this Summer and the Troma themed events to be featured at Indy Pop Con this weekend and San Diego Comic Con in July.
Lloyd Kaufman is known for his 50 years of championing the independent arts and supporting indie filmmakers all over the planet, one example is 17 year old Kansas Bowling, creator and director of B.C. Butcher  who has received international recognition and recently premiered B.C. Butcher at Hollywood’s legendary Egyptian Theatre.  Troma Entertainment was the gateway for Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn and a catalyst in developing the careers of many actors, like Vincent D’Onofrio, Samuel L. Jackson and cult-movie heroine Debbie Rochon.  Aspiring filmmakers, Troma fans and supporters of the independent cinema are invited to join Kaufman on Reddit this Wednesday evening for an opportunity to pick the brain of the movie-making legend and hear his words of wisdom and experience.
