KFX 2018 Guests
Hosts & Performers
PJ Phil Guerro
Phil Guerrero is best known as “PJ Phil” the original Host for the Zone during the 90’s. If you were a fan of the “Power Rangers,” “Sailor Moon” or “Are you Afraid of the Dark?” in Canada, Phil most likely guided you through those shows on the Zone for years. Whether he was teaming up with Warren, Snit or a human he made afternoons after school memorable and fun. You can join him Saturday morning for cartoons and a free cereal breakfast, just like you remember it!

Yes, everyone’s favourite dancing, partying, spandex-wearing hype man is back! The man, the myth, the legend. He never fails to put a smile on your face, and he brings the fun with him wherever he goes at our events as a free-roaming, one-man show!
Takahata101 from TeamFourStar (Dragon Ball Z Abridged, Hellsing Ultimate Abridged)
One of the founding members of internet sensation TeamFourStar, Takahata101 played the quotable, notable and explodable Nappa, who kept the jokes coming even after getting betrayed by the Prince of all Saiyans. Also known for his role as Alucard in Hellsing Ultimate Abridged, where he played the wisecracking, indestructible and delightfully unhinged Alucard- a vampire who likes his plasma screen TV as much as he loves beating his enemies.
Evany Rosen(Picnicface, Hotel Transylvania)
One of our two contenders on The Debaters on Friday night, Evany will be sticking around for the rest of the con to meet with fans of Hotel Transylvania and her other roles! This talented and hilarious multi-talent is not one to miss!
