This month, we're welcoming guests from The House Theatre of Chicago! Appropriately, our theme is "House Rules." 

Friday, January 16, 2015 - 10:00pm
Hilton Downtown Milwaukee City Center: 509 W Wisconsin Ave, Milwaukee, WI, 53203

Hey Nerds, we're taking a trip to Milwaukee for the 15th annual Midwinter Gaming Convention! Won't you join us?

In our sketch shows, the Nerdologues love to share personal stories about our lives growing up as nerds. In the Nerdologues' Your Stories, a live show-turned-biweekly podcast, it's your turn! Your Stories is completely created by our audience. Each month we prompt our storytellers with a theme and they craft a story, comedy bit, song, or whatever they like in response. We record them all and release a bunch to the Web.

To celebrate our appearance at the Midwinter Gaming Convention, the theme of the night will be 'Roll Models.' Kind of like that movie with LARPing in it, you know? But 'roll models' also speaks to our inspirations in the gaming community. What makes us play on? Of course, you don't have to take the theme super literally. It's just there for inspiration! Come share whatever that makes you think of, or just hear what other people have to say!

Saturday, January 10, 2015 - 11:00pm

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.
