The Super Serious Show with Chris Hardwick

Photo by Sian Kennedy2nd time's the charm! After an almost October, comedian and nerd extraordinaire, Chris Hardwick is back to head-up the November 17th Super Serious Show at Smashbox Studios.

Hardwick is one of the more fun and smart comedians working today. Hardwick’s performances are full of charm and wit, loaded with all-direction snark – from nerdy tangents to tales from his Southern upbringing. He’s also a master of the digital domain, including running his own popular weekly podcast, The Nerdist, along with recent Super Serious alum Jonah Ray.

Hardwick has kick-started his own online, podcast, production and comedy empire under his Nerdist Industries moniker. He hosts G4’s Web Soup and is a frequent contributor to G4’s Attack of The Show. Hardwick’s recent television appearances include regular spots on Chelsea Lately, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and John Oliver’s New York Stand-up Special.

Hardwick released his book, The Nerdist Way, this month. Hardwick also has music chops, teaming up from time to time with his pal, Mike Phirman, to form the comedy music outfit, Hard N’ Phirm. Hardwick has a ton of other possible projects in the works with companies such as HBO, NBC, Comedy Central, IFC and Funny Or Die. His televised version of his Nerdist Podcast just aired a special on BBC America this Fall.

Hardwick is a skilled stand-up, touring nationally and a regular at festivals including SF Sketchfest, Just For Laughs, SXSW, Coachella and Bumbershoot.
