Talking to The Nerdist Himself… it’s Chris Hardwick!

If you don’t already know Chris Hardwick, he’s about to eat your airwaves – his podcast is now the hottest thing going, he’s on G4, and he’s just signed a hot new deal with BBC America for a series of shows called MINISTRY OF LAUGHS, and has committed to a TV pilot based on his podcast. And, he doesn’t look half bad in a speedo!

It would be easy to reduce my continuous plugging of and Chris Hardwick to rampant fanboy leg humping, but the thing I dig most about Chris is his absolute human-ness, and his ability to embrace his Nerddom in a most extraordinary way. Right before he went on stage at The Showbox this past Saturday, he was kind enough to open his greenroom to us for a casual chat to talk about geekly matters.

Big thanks to Chris for making intelligence a virtue, proving that honoring the DIY aesthetic can lead to success, and showing that smart people are Pro-Equality for all.
