Florida Whammy Entertainment
In the beginning there were game shows. Then there was anime. Then a group of 3 guys decided to do the unthinkable. Combine the two. That’s how FWE was founded.
Florida Whammy Entertainment is the name of the Panelist Organization that produces otaku game shows across Florida and have been expanding throughout the state like lightning!
FWE is led by a core team of 3 people who are in charge of 3 divisions within the team. Executive Producer Bryan Espinoza heads up the Operations Division which is in charge of day-to-day operations outside of conventions, and to keep the website and Social Media sites up to date and monitored. Executive Producer Kayleigh DeGollier is the head of our Production Division, which houses our graphics department, our question writers, our production assistants, and everyone else you could ever need to help build or run a game show. Executive Director Jonathan T. Nielsen is the head of our Direction Division which manages operations at conventions, and is also home of the programming department, which creates all the fabulous shows, which is the most important part of the team. FWE is also backed by a support team of over 20 individuals who lend their time and talent to helping FWE achieve its mission statement of bringing quality game shows to conventions across the southeast.
Florida Whammy Entertainment is proud to have been a part of this community for 5 years, and hopes
to be hosting game shows and other entertainment for at least 5 more years to come!
