Here's an hour-plus interview Chris Hardwick conducted with Jimmy Fallon at the Paley Center in 2011 that was just uploaded to YouTube by the Reserve Channel. Fallon tells his SNL audition story, talks about putting together his Late Night team, and sweats a lot.
Chris Hardwick might be the most popular nerd in America, which makes you wonder if that even qualifies him as a nerd anymore. Oh well, that’s a philosophical debate for another time.
As the creator and impresario behind Nerdist Industries, Hardwick lords over a digital nerd kingdom that began as a website, but has since expanded to a successful podcast network, YouTube channel, and production house, among other endeavors. He’s also an actor, writer, and television host extraordinaire, beginning with his run on MTV’s Singled Out to his current gig hosting Talking Dead on AMC. But first and foremost, Hardwick is a stand-up comic, and earlier this [...]
As time goes on, Comedy Central becomes less and less comedy's center but, as their fall schedule can attest, they still have some tricks up their sleeves. One being T.J. Miller's Mash Up, which has stand-ups like Hannibal Buress, Pete Holmes, and Reggie Watts perform sets, from which sketches are then performed. Comedy Central also announced their next few stand-up specials, which includes a new hour from Demetri Martin, Chris Hardwick, D.L. Hughley, and, so it goes, Jeff Dunham. Of course, Key & Peele and South Park will be back. Check out all the premiere dates below, if you dare…which you should because there's literally no danger in [...]
