Chris Hardwick’s ‘Nerdist’ TV Show Will Feature Stand-Up and Cool Guests
BBC America just announced an impressive guest lineup for The Nerdist, the network’s new Chris Hardwick-hosted show based on the popular podcast and blog of the same name. After a series of one-hour specials on BBC America, The Nerdist will kick off its 10-episode first season this Saturday, March 30th, at 10PM, with Hardwick joined by his Nerdist cohorts Jonah Ray and Matt Mira. Guests will include Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg, Gillian Jacobs, Dominic Monaghan, Guillermo Del Toro, Robert Kirkman, Buzz Aldrin, and Karen Gillan, but more importantly, the show will feature stand-up, with Rob Huebel, Paul Scheer, Kyle Kinane, Natasha Leggero, Ron Funches and Matt Kirshen set to perform. It’s pretty great that there will be another place on TV to see stand-up and that Hardwick and company have been able to land such solid guests.
