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!
