Chris Hardwick, stand-up comedian and self-proclaimed nerd (well “others-proclaimed,” too), is perhaps our nation’s premier proponent and purveyor of geek & nerd lifestyle with his copious endeavors for Nerdist Industries and beyond. His website Nerdist.com is a trove of all manner of nerd culture and his tip-top-ranked comedy podcast (also available for free on iTunes) is a consistently interesting listen. Chris recently authored the humorous self-help book The Nerdist Way: How to Reach the Next Level (In Real Life) for his fellow “creative obsessives” to harness their particular attributes for the imminent Nerd uprising. Think this is a laughing matter? Well it is, but with 1.6 million Twitter followers, do not be surprised by Hardwick’s attainment of his hopes that “…will one day bring destruction and ruin to the mouth-breathing, jock masses… paving the way for a world where video games are free, Cheetos are currency and robot concubines vigorously endeavor to sate our sexual thirsts.”
Chris just taped a new Comedy Central Special (airdate TBD), and he is a writer for Wired magazine, can be seen on G4’S “Attack of the Show” and BBC America’s “The Nerdist” TV specials. Along with Mike Phirman, Chris is one-half of the musical comedy duo “Hard ‘n Phirm” (and Chris is producing an animated pilot, “Hard ‘n Phirm’s Musical Timehole” for IFC). He is regularly featured on “Chelsea Lately,” “The Soup”, and “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.” Chris is also the voice of Otis the Cow on Nickelodeon’s “Back at the Barnyard.”
Expect an entertaining night of laughs, brainiac debate, enthusiastic discussions, and pure podcastic nerd love.
