Symposium Entertainment – Gandersnitch the Goblin

043015 FB Banner ISS2016

Gandersnitch the Goblin, the Banished Barber of Goblonia, has been declared by some to be the 9th wonder of the world…


He dumped her shortly thereafter though, because anyone that attracted to goblins has to be slightly unstable.

Since 2009 he has been found at faires and festivals across the country, from Oregon, to New York, to Kentucky and many points between. There he entertains the masses with his unique brand of goblin humor and questionable antics. He has told tales for children, spun poetry for adults, hosted unfortunate tea parties, and flirted shamelessly with girls from Romania (which is evidently right next to his home country of Goblonia.)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIn 2012 he discovered the steampunk scene, and quickly established himself as a pillar of impropriety among the ranks of tiny top hats, corsets, and kilts. A year later, the more mainstream comic book, geek, and gaming conventions followed, proving a perfect place to blend in like a sore thumb among all the other weirdos. In recent years he has peddled his Snake Oil Comedy Show, hosted his Bloody Brilliant Talk Show, conducted for the prestigious Goblonian National Volunteer Orchestra, and even been coaxed into the occasional Goblin Burlesque.

He has also authored and produced multiple books and an audiobook, co-hosted the Goblin Talk podcast, created “The Wÿrld Today” video podcast, been kicked out of a major retail chain for looking strange and suspicious, and has been awarded such honors as “The Most Off the Cob Attendee” and a possible winner of the Publisher’s Clearinghouse Sweepstakes!
