Barking Mad Productions is the organization founded by Craig Trader and Tad Pierson way back when they and their unindicted co-conspirators were writing LARPs together. One day they decided to have a party, and the next year Tad & Craig’s Excellent Party was born.

Over the last 15 years, everybody got a little older, a little balder (in Tad’s case), and probably a lot crazier, but TCEP rolls on, an unstoppable and probably inflammable juggernaut, waiting for the spark that sets off the Final Catastrophe. Meanwhile, TCEP takes place every year on Labor Day weekend, overshadowed by ReallyHugeCon in Atlanta, among other notable events, but we have FUN! OR ELSE!
