JoCo Cruise Crazy took over the main show lounge of the Eurodam from 5-7pm each evening (except Sunday) for performances from Jonathan Coulton and his fellow entertainers. In addition there were a few scheduled social gatherings, as well as JoCo karaoke, Rock Band, movies and plays.

Artists

Note: Paul F. Tompkins was originally scheduled to perform, but had to bow out due to a work commitment. His place on the bill was taken by Stepto.

Notes

In October 2009, Jonathan Coulton mentioned the “hypothetical” possibility of hosting a cruise involving entertainment by himself and his “circle of famous entertainment powerhouse friends.” After evaluating fan interest in such a venture via the blog, the cruise was announced as a real event in July 2010. In a nod to JoCo's song Tom Cruise Crazy, the event was dubbed “JoCo Cruise Crazy”.

Video Contest

From the start JoCo Cruise Crazy was about trying to be as much fun as possible for everyone involved. To that end fan engagement in the organization process was high–Paul and Storm and later David Rees encouraged discussion in the forums and actively solicited ideas for events
