National Cartoonists Society. The National Cartoonists Society (NCS) is an organization of professional cartoonists in the United States.

National Cartoonists Society

It presents the National Cartoonists Society Awards. The Society was born in 1946 when groups of cartoonists got together to entertain the troops. They enjoyed each other's company and decided to meet on a regular basis.[1] NCS members work in many branches of the profession, including advertising, animation, newspaper comic strips and syndicated single-panel cartoons, comic books, editorial cartoons, gag cartoons, graphic novels, greeting cards, magazine and book illustration. Only recently has the National Cartoonists Society embraced web comics.

History[edit] He said, "Everybody has a club or an association or some kind—lumber jacks, undertakers, rug weavers, even garbage collectors—so I don’t see why we can’t have one, too. " The Society was organized on a Friday evening, March 1, 1946, when 26 cartoonists gathered at 7pm in the Barberry Room on East 52nd Street in Manhattan.

The Quick 10: How 10 Bands Got Their Names

I just got the series on DVD and have been trying to limit myself to a couple of episodes every night to stretch out the delightfulness. I'm actually listening to FOTC right now (If You're Into It, in case you were curious). With a name like Flight of the Conchords, though, you have to wonder what the inspiration was. And that is the inspiration behind today's Quick 10 "“ where bands got their names. How 10 Bands Got Their Names. About the band - Flight of the Conchords. From that short vignette the group of five developed another pseudo nude show called So, You’re A Man.

About the band - Flight of the Conchords

They performed to sell out audiences in Wellington and Auckland, and were then invited to perform at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. They flew to Australia for a one month season at a Melbourne’s comedy club called The Last Laugh. The group couldn’t believe they were being paid to perform and Bret blew his entire first pay cheque on a pair of leather pants.

Unfortunately the Australians didn’t appreciate the show like they had in New Zealand and the season was cancelled after one week. In 1998 Bret and Jemaine decided to start a band. After the encouraging feedback the pair continued to write songs in their living room, subjecting their six flatmates to relentless three chord jams. That night was their first performance as Flight of the Conchords.
