From “The Nerdist”: z’Ombeal

In case you missed Saturday night’s edition of The Nerdist on BBC America, and you’d better have a VERY GOOD REASON for doing that, like you were not in the U.S. or you were playing for Michigan or Syracuse at the time (my excuse? I was driving to Vegas at the time, but it’s on the DVR), here are Karen Gillan’s z’Ombeal sketches from the show, a hair care spot and a warning to just Say No to Brains. Zombie makeup can’t wipe out the adorbs.

And, in case you missed it last week, the original:

Hey, Canada, your chance to watch is Sunday, 7/6c/4p, on Space. And if you’re in North America, this should serve as a reminder to watch the show live next week, Saturday 10/9c on BBC America, with Jon Hamm, Betsy Brandt, and Rory Scovel (and Sunday on Space in Canada). No excuses.

  1. Fun fact: According him on Twitter, Matt Mira’s girl-friend Kikoo- sorry, Kiki is one of Karen’s victims.

  2. P.F. Bruns says:

    Those were great, and everyone involved should feel great! Seriously, as good as the premise and scripts were, Karen deserves a huge amount of credit for doing such a wonderful job with both the “presenter” bits and the physical stuff through that makeup.Those were three really funny bits.

    To quote Duke Nukem: Hell, I’d still hit it.

    And now for the nerdy backpedal: You know, If I was ever grace with the opportunity to wine and be dine on by zombie Karen Gillan, GLAVEEEEN, SWOOOOOOOOOOON!
