Working Hard To Better The Awards Show Experience

Wrath of Cannes is the right kind of award show. That is, one that doesn’t take itself too seriously.
Hosted by Woods Witt Dealy, the announcement is plenty cheeky.

This week, what will you be doing while Madison Avenue’s crème de la crème are soaking up sun and sipping rosé on the Riviera during the Cannes International Advertising Festival?
Why not join the rest of us outcasts, exiles and undesirables at Cha-Cha’s Club Atlantis on Coney Island’s boardwalk this Thursday, 6/19 for the 2nd annual Wrath of Cannes Awards Show! Because, really, Cha-Cha’s is the new Gutter Bar.

It’s a juniors-only show, where participants are encouraged to bring one great idea on a thumb drive. The judges will select the winner in real time. The lucky winner will receive a brand new bike from IRO Cycle, along with the one and only Grand Coney, a trophy of a man with his head up his ass.
The Tarantinos will perform and there’s open bar from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.
