Nerds Are Funny

Nerds In Real Life

The Playground Theater: 3209 N Halsted, Chicago, IL

Come on out to hang out with us as we do a very rare improv show. 

For the past year Kevin has put together a weekly show at The Playground Theater that welcomes new improv groups. It's called, The New New Show. Anyways, we're commandeering that time-slot.

This Thanksgiving eve, there's no show following it, so we're going to hang out and get weird. Then, drink. 

The Playground is BYOB. So do that. 3209 N. Halsted (Boystown)

The show starts at 8pm, but we'll be hanging out well well afterwards. 

It's $10 / $5 for a student/improvisor. If you're broke, we can totally score you some two for one pricing on this very special night.

Every month, the Nerdologues invite our friends and Nerds from the community to come and share their stories. Some people do stand-up, perform sketches, or sing songs; a lot of people tell their tales. Then we put it up on a podcast. 

This month, our podcast is three years old! It's also the end of 2014! We're celebrating that by bringing back some of your favorite speakers from the past year, as determined here -! As usual come December, our theme is officially "Annual," but come share whatever you want!

If you want to sign up for a slot, post your interest on the event wall below! Just please make sure you can actually be there before you take somebody's spot!

Bill Green for president 2016! That's how great this episode is! I promise we don't just gab on about each individual issue, Bill tells some wonderful first-hand accounts of being inspired to change his major [and the world!], working on a presidential campaign, and continuing to be on the front lines politically as the employee of a nonprofit organization with a grant for implementing ObamaCare.

Bryan Duff? More like Bryan BUFF because this guy is a well-oiled machine of nutrition facts and practices. He's not here to get preachy or make anybody feel guilty, he just has a genuine interest and passion in the fuel that makes our bodies tick in the healthiest, most efficient way.

Cynthia is the sweetest gal on the block, so it was no surprise she wanted to chat about fun children's books with me. From her days as an actual child to her daytime nanny gig, she's run the gamut of being into good stories and good characters and good fun in books for kids.
