Greetings Nerdist fans! Here’s the low-down on where you can catch Chris Hardwick this week. There’s no Talking Dead tonight since The Walking Dead is on hiatus until February. But never fear, our leader of all things nerdy will be all over the TV anyways!
There are four new episodes of @midnight to look forward to. On Monday night, look forward to seeing our pal Paul F. Tompkins match wits with Family Guy‘s Alex Borstein and NTSF:SD:SUV‘s Brandon Johnson. Tuesday, Jim Jefferies, Rhys Darby and Al Madrigal will take the podiums by storm. Judah Friedlander, Brooks Wheelan and Mamrie Hart will bring the funny on Wednesday. And the week will finish up with Doug Benson, Megan Neuringer and Kurt Braunohler on Thursday night.
There’s also exciting things in store for Nerdist Podcast listeners as this week brings three awesome guests to your headphones. Chris’s BFF Wil Wheaton returns to the podcast for the fourth time (we think…there’s like 600+ episodes now but that’s the number we remember). Lisa Kudrow sits down with Chris to talk Friends, The Comeback, and Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion. And, because we like saving the best things for last, Benedict Cumberbatch is also stopping by the podcast to talk all manner of things that are awesome. We cannot wait to give it a listen and pretend Chris is interviewing Smaug because that would be freakin’ incredible.
If you live in San Francisco, you can also catch Hardwick live in your town! He’ll be performing at Cobb’s Comedy Club on Thursday, Friday and Saturday this week. You can grab tickets here.
