Villain Support Live!-

Hosted by Chris Wolf 

I run the Villain Support (@villainsupport) Social Media Channels and have almost a half-million followers  across TikTok, Instagram, YouTube, and Facebook and do short sketches of customer-service style phone calls with Villains.


Villain Support Live! is an improvised experience where I welcome everyone, explain Villain Support real quick and what the plan for the panel is, and then ask for suggestions from the audience to create a brand new, original anime villain on the spot - what type of anime they are from (shonen, Isekai, slice of life, etc), what type of anime setting they are in - (magical, sci-fi, horror, etc), their powers/abilities, who the hero/heroes they fight against are and what those heroes can do, and a name for their new villain and the organization or kingdom they run, and then do a villain support-style call with this villain live in front of the audience
