We made it! San Diego Comic Con is over and done with for another year, and we survived! It’s time to drag ourselves back to our regularly scheduled programming over here at your weekly run down of all the places you can find our fearless leader in the coming week.
Some exciting things are coming up this week including a trip to Montreal for Chris as he’ll be performing at Just For Laughs next weekend. It starts Friday, July 24th with an appearance in Ellie Kemper’s Unbreakable, All Star Comedy Show where he will perform alongside comics like Michael Che, Pete Holmes, Reggie Watts, Margaret Cho and Debra DiGiovanni. Then on Saturday, July 25th, Chris will perform solo with his Funcomfortable Tour hour. Tickets are still available so if you’re going to be in Montreal, you should definitely check it out.

Tuesday night will have Hari Kondabolu, Alice Wetterlund and Randall Park performing. Wednesday night has Jade Catta-Preta alongside Adam Goldberg and Ashley Williams. And the week finishes up on Thursday with Matt Walsh, Horatio Sanz and Jerry Minor fighting over the champion of the internet title.
If you thought all this comedy wasn’t enough, there are also new episodes of the Nerdist Podcast to look forward to. International treasure Sir Ian McKellen will be on the show to discuss his new Sherlock Holmes film and his incredible career. After that, Lea Thompson joins Chris and the guys in honor of the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future. She will also talk about Howard the Duck because why not? After that, a brand new hostful where many laughs will be had by all.
