Noted television personality and humorist Chris Hardwick is, as readers of this here website are acutely aware, traveling the country with his comedic dog-and-pony show on the Chaotic Good tour of America. New additions to that tour include the previously-announced Minneapolis, plus Portland, Brooklyn, and Detroit. And it’s time to warn… er, let everyone in those areas know Chris is on his way to entertain the populace.
It’s Node Warriors time. Here’s what it involves: You’ll be part of a “street team” to download, print, and distribute flyers throughout the community wherever Chris Hardwick fans might congregate, with the goal being to fill each venue with folks who’ll appreciate the Nerdist brand of humor and community. We’ll choose ten Node Warriors in each city, who will each receive a pair of tickets for the show in appreciation. As Chris said the very first time he put together a Node Warriors team like this, “If you’re bored the next couple of weeks and feel like meeting folks while building a thing, then THIS IS YOUR CALLING.” Yeah.
We’ll do it the same way we did it the last time: Send an e-mail ASAP (before next Wednesday, April 13th) with your full name, the city in which you want to be a Node Warrior, and why you want to do it, to [email protected]. Make the subject line “Pick ME In (insert city).” (Put your choice of city in there. We know the “I, State Your Name” joke already) We’ll pick ten people in each market, and those people will get invites to join the Node Warriors (and for the Node if they aren’t members already) and ticket invites. Others will be able to join the Node Warriors but won’t get tickets, ’cause those are of limited number. You’ll coordinate with other Warriors through the Node forums, and you’ll be able to download flyers to print and distribute. And everyone who comes to the shows gets a big (optional, if you’re contact-averse) hug from Chris at a little meet-up after the show.
The show dates are May 6th at the Varsity Theater in Minneapolis (click to buy tickets), May 14th at The Aladdin in Portland (ticket link TBA), May 20th at Littlefield in Brooklyn (click to buy tickets), and June 10th at the Magic Bag in Detroit (Ferndale, actually, but close enough) (For the 7 pm show, click here for tickets, and for the 10 pm show, click here for tickets).
So get your e-mails in ASAP. Let’s get the word out. Chris is standing by to hug YOU.
