SPA Presents: Chris Hardwick April 22


“Chris Hardwick makes regular appearances on “Chelsea Lately,” “The Soup” and “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.” In 2008, he founded Nerdist, a website and podcast devoted to all things nerd related. In 2010, he shot TV pilots for HBO, NBC and Comedy Central, recently wrapped a pilot with Funny or Die for TBS and is producing an animated pilot, “Hard ‘n Phirm’s Musical Timehole,” for IFC. Many weekends out of the calendar year, he uses an electric amplification device to make strangers in comedy club settings like him by telling jokes, most likely due to a deep-seeded need for attention that was forged during his tormentingly unpopular junior high years. Additionally, he has played at numerous comedy/music festivals including Just for Laughs, US Comedy Arts, SF Sketchfest, SXSW, Coachella and Bumbershoot.

All Comedy Month events are free and ticketless for students with Penn State University Park student photo IDs. Students will be admitted on a first come, first serve basis. If capacity is not reached, members of the general public may be allowed in for free.

For all of you “Walking Dead” fans, he is also the host of the show that comes right after called, “The Talking Dead.”
