A convention skit or a "fan play' is a play written and performed by fans about their relationship with their favorite TV shows. Most gently mock fandom's obsessions. While some fan plays focus on the characters, many other delve into the meta issues surrounding fans' relationships with one another and their community.

Examples of convention skits

  • Spock Shock, the very first media convention skit, written in 1967, performed in 1969
