Nerds around the world united as we got our "geek" on this morning with comedian, talk show host and podcaster Chris Hardwick. We talked new technology, old porn, Dr. Who and The Walking Dead with our resident expert on all things nerdy. We were also visited by old friend Ralph Harris, and discussed Te'o's fake girlfriend.
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.
Though Ralph Harris has found success in both television and film, he continues to be on of the best touring stand-up comedians. "A Tonight Show" veteran and finalist on "Last Comic Standing," Harris isn't your typical stand-up comedian because he does much more than tell jokes on stage, he acts them out. He has appeared on the shows "Seinfeld," "In Living Color," "Living Single" and "Parenthood" just to name a few. Ralph's natural chameleon-like ability has helped him land a few roles in hit films like Dreamgirls and Evan Almighty. He was also the host of the show "My Momma Throws Down" on TV One.
