Chris Hardwick is on a mission. He wants to prove once and for all that being a nerd is nothing to be ashamed of; that one can live the “Nerdist” lifestyle without being a stereotypical geekwad. He’s doing this with stand-up comedy, writing for WIRED Magazine, writing horror movie soundtracks and starring in movies like Terminator 3 and House of 1000 Corpses. He's also the host of "Talking Dead," a show that takes a deeper look at AMC's hit zombie drama "The Walking Dead." You can follow Chris on facebook and twitter.
If someone were to tell you they were performing as a comedy club MC six times a week and having to host karaoke after each show in the dead of winter 60 miles from the Canadian border while living in a 6x8 motel room next to a French fry factory, you might think they had it all. Chad Daniels on the other hand felt he needed something more in his life. Good thing he did too, because since then he's performed as a finalist in Comedy Central’s "Laugh Riots" competition, appeared on "The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn," and Comedy Central Presents and released two comedy albums including his newest one, Busy Being Awesome.
