Nerds In Real Life

In this darkly comedic musical, the true life of Danny Tanner and is family is exposed; promises will be broken, sinister paths explored, lives may be lost, and yes, songs will be sung. Whether you’re a member of the Full House fan club or scoff in a superior fashion when you hear someone utter “Cut It Out”; you will find both a touch of nostalgia and an illuminating light shining brightly on the Tanners’ most clandestine realities. Come see the Tanners as you’ve never seen them before.

No joke, we're going to Denver!

The Nerdologues are coming to town for Denver Comic Con 2016, and we wanted to bring some of our favorite sketches!  We'll pull some classic scenes, songs, and stories out of our vault to put together some of the tightest 45 minutes you've ever seen.  Our selections range from "Punchline: The Hero of a Thousand Laughs" to a song answering age-old question, "What is a Bitcoin?"

The Nerds have been around for six years now, and we're looking to Take Things to the Next Level!! We can use your help doing that.

Grab a D20 and roll up a character sheet because we are gonna go on a softly-guided journey, listeners. Bennett and Brendan have both had a love for tabletop RPGs since being looped into campaigns as teenagers. After years of different game groups and editions of Dungeons and Dragons, they've joined forces with other members of their theatre company, Otherworld, to create a staged version of their beloved pastime, Fight Quest, that recruits an audience member at the top of the show to be their hero. Lots of talk about other fun RPGs (Fiasco, Lasers and Feelings, Vampire: The Masquerade, etc) and the life lessons gleaned from dealing with all types of gaming personalities.
