Nerds are Funny

Comedy and stories from the people who stand up and come out as nerds

Nerds In Real Life

For eight years we've been making silly, weirdly specific stuff to entertain all of you. Let's commemorate that! We put some of our favorite material -- both sketches and songs -- from our history into a feature-length greatest hits-style album because, well, why not? Now these laughs are immortalized forever... or at least until an EMP wipes out the whole internet. But, y'know, might as well enjoy this record until then!

Alyssa was born a rebel, as evidenced by her refusal to accept an "Indian" name in place of her own as a kindergartener on Columbus Day. This small rebellion opened the door to an interest in eking out the truth about colonialism, imperialism, and revolutions throughout her schooling. In college, she declared a Middle-Eastern Studies and Political Theory double major to feed her thirst for knowledge on how the history of colonialism influences the sociology of current cultures.

Gary Pascal grew up in a home operated like an engineering firm thanks to his ME father. This nature and nurture led to all four of the family's kids also becoming mechanical engineers. After choosing BEST Robotics to fulfill a graduation requirement for his STEM high school, Gary was well on his way to serving as an engineer for Mars Chocolate right out of college.

Box Brown has been a pro wrestling fan since his first PPV experience: Hulk Hogan lost at Wrestlemania VI, and the friend he was watching with cried. He was hooked by the characters and the facade of it all, so it's no wonder that he became attracted to two huge cults of personality in André and Andy. André left a bevy of stories in his wake, one of which inspired Box to draw the first comic of what eventually became his NYT-bestselling graphic novel, André the Giant: Life and Legend. Young Box was also hooked by the way Andy borrowed the idea of wrestlers strictly staying in character and carried it into his comedy. Andy's antics as a classic heel culminating with being slapped by Jerry Lawler on Letterman secured him a place in the history of wrestling's secrets and Box's interest.
