Chris Hardwick throws pens and has some identity issues when it comes to hosting a show (pens were thrown), but it’s all cool because the actual host of the show is his oldest pal Wil Wheaton, and the show in question is Larry King Now, specially guest hosted by Wheaton, so it’s all in good fun.
That’s right! Our fearless leader sat down with Wheaton on the set of Larry King Now to discuss all of the things that make Chris Hardwick the man he is today from hentai porn to computer labs/math departments/chess clubs to chairs that really should (but don’t) accommodate leaning as chairs are meant to be leaned into. The episode is up live online now, and we can’t wait for you to take a few minutes and watch.
Particular favorite moments for us include the aforementioned pen throwing and the When Harry Met Sally moment. Because who doesn’t love a good romantic comedy!? Then the suspenders change shoulders, and topics take a turn for the serious when net neutrality is brought to the forefront of discussion. It’s a really important issue that you should care about, and both Chris and Wil want you to know more about it! Also they talk about salmon runs, and then there are puns, and really don’t you just need a run through that gauntlet of fun?
No matter which nerdy icon you love more – Chris or Wil – you need to watch this episode! If only because you need to know what an average day at Comic Con is like for someone like the Nerdist because wow. It’s intense. Tell us what you think in the comments below!
