We love working with Cards Against Humanity. Remember when we did that first Nerds Against Humanity Show? Or that gross video for 12 Days of Holiday Bullshit? We're doing another show with them at The Triple Door in Seattle. Improvised Star Trek will be there and this show is going to have some surpise guests.

The Public House Theatre: 3914 N Clark, Chicago, IL, 60613

Have you seen The Doubleclicks? They write and perform nerdy songs. We write and perform nerdy sketch comedy. Our paths were destined to cross. Thanks to our friends at Cards Against Humanity for making it happen.

Dive in to this episode with the indomitable Erin Lann for tons of ocean chat! We delve into her three favorite animals of all time (all sea beasts), and eventually meander into some deeper philosophical territories like bio-dome conservation and world politics. Erin gets into some deep cut ocean animal facts, and it was a true joy to learn from her.

I'm pretty ashamed of myself for never having seen Joss Whedon's beloved, taken-before-its-time sci-fi series, and dear Allison only heightened my shame with her excellent weaving of thoughts and feelings on this series and many other Whedon properties. We explore themes ranging from dealing with grief to accepting your inner nerd-dom all via Whedon's 14-episode work (plus some Serenity talk).

Sean Kelley is super into a lot of things because he's a super knowledgeable dude and fan, but he's especially super into the superheroes that make up the X-Men. He's been on board since X-Men #1 came out in 1991 (the best-selling comic book of all time!) and has been ravenously consuming the comics since then. Thus, of course, he has some stellar thoughts about what has worked and what hasn't in the film adaptations of said comics (and some other Marvel and non-Marvel properties just as some fun, relevant tangents).

Andy Junk may have mad love for the Caped Crusader, but he is far from a Dark Knight. Brimming with kindness and enthusiasm, Andy covered all eras and all mediums of Batman fandom (comics, films, live action and animated TV series, video games, collectables... the works). There were no stones left unturned in this delightful romp through the bat cave.
