Nerdist Podcast #10: Live @ Largo w/ Adam Savage! [NSFW]

I’m very lucky in my life to have smart, exceptionally nice friends. I happily count Mythbusters‘ own Adam Savage in that group and I was thrilled that he joined us for our very first live podcast. This was recorded at Largo in Los Angeles on April 5th, 2010 in front of a kick-ass crowd of delightful humans. As these people had exchanged hard-earned dollars for seats to this show, we made it a little longer than a normal podcast by incorporating live performances and taking Q & A from them at the end.

*SPECIAL NOTE: Adam did stand-up for the FIRST TIME in his life and DESTROYED. It was truly hilarious and I hope he continues to do it!

*SPECIAL NOTE #2: We all swear a lot in this, so if you wanted to listen to this with your kids, think again unless you’re sure the Internet has already taught them way worse things than F-bombs.

Excelsior!

    I don’t find it particularly funny.. probably not my sense of humour…

  3. Nimo says:

    Thank you for a great show. Adam is truly a unique person.

    Ok, I think I give up for now. These early podcasts don’t seem to be listenable for me. That makes me a sad nerd.

    I had to go to the dentist today to have a couple cavities filled. I was hoping to deter the dentist from talking to me and distract myself from the proceedings so I had planned on having a few episodes of Doctor Who. My iPod touch decided to fail me and refused to play either episode. I almost gave up but then I realized that I have some Nerdist podcasts on there and I could listen to one of those. I chose this one because I hadn’t heard it in several months. The dentist of course kept trying to talk to me so I turned down the podcast and when I turned it back up the line, “a cape made out of dicks” is the first thing I heard.

    Let me just say…it was a difficult moment because at that moment I was being shot with novocaine and obviously couldn’t move. By that point I was also happily floating in nitrous oxide land so you can imagine the struggle.

    Ok, running on the treadmill and listening to this was a bad plan.

    I don’t know where in my brain to put the information about Fisher Stevens being a sex machine. Somewhere between “Oooooh, really? :)” and “WHY GOD, WHY?”

  11. Emily says:

    I bought tickets to the Largo because this podcast was so awesome sauce.

  12. Cheryl says:

    I thought it couldn’t get better after Drew Carey, but Adam rocked. I really enjoy all of your podcasts. thanks so much.

  13. Carlos says:

    Definitely need more funeral home stories. Nearly crashed the car from laughing so hard at “They don’t diiieeee!”

  14. Thaddeus Maximus says:

    That was awesome! And very very funny, Adams stand up… ya!

  15. Indy Android says:

    Didn’t Adam Savage say he was going to give you a picture of him wearing Chris Tucker’s wig from the 5th Element so you could post it on the blog? Where is that schizz?

    Wonderful show! I showed my wife that terrible Billy Joel video last night and we had a laugh riot!

  16. Zaz says:

    I’m still stuck trying to figure out what gesture Adam’s son was making… ^^

  17. pantsaloon says:

    spoil the surprise for me, did adam reveal if it was actually him in the famous goatsee pic?

  18. Jason says:

    Kudos on a very enjoyable podcast. After hearing you first on Adam Carolla’s podcast, I tried listening to yours and now subscribe. Keep up the good work. Nerd out!

    I was laughing so hard I cried while listening and doing yard work! I love the goofy nerdiness of the whole thing.

  24. Peggy says:

    LOVE the live-ness! This was such an enjoyable podcast, on all points.

  25. Sarah says:

    I just listened to the episode this weekend… awesome episode, loved the stand up by Adam. He is much funnier when he’s just talking about himself rather than hamming it up. I love him wherever he shows up on the interwebs

  26. Will says:

    Great show, I have listened to it for the third time this week. I can’t rave enough about the Nerdist Podcast, to friends and frankly to anyone who will listen. I can’t wait for each new podcast, you guys are doing a great job and keep up the great work. Smart, FUNNY and FUN.
    Not a lot of entertainment now a days that has all three.

  27. MichaelG says:

    Very good show. Great stories from everyone.

  28. DallasK says:

    Is Adam just great? I want to hang out with him and drink beer!

  29. smartbunny says:

    Great episode!!!!

  30. SeleneUsagi says:

    I loved this episode of the Nerdist podcast! It was too fucking funny! Keep up the good work! >_<

  31. KAT says:

    I was reading your Wikipedia page looking for your bother Peter. I couldn’t find him, but when I went to your dads page he was there. “He is also the father of the comedian and television personality Chris Hardwick, Emily Hardwick, an Art Major at UC Santa Cruz, as well as the fabulously talented Peter Hardwick, who has won numerous awards for his unique brand of stand-up comedy and is now teaching abroad in Japan.[2]”

  32. Monty says:

    I’m almost positive I heard Penn tell the chimp/little person story on his old radio show. Apparently, any little person who’s worked on a circus knows the rule about staying away from chimps.

  33. jess says:

    I love you for the intro stand up! I live in Dallas, so seeing Chris Hardwick do stand up is just not gonna happen me thinks. Rest of the podcast was not too shabby either. Jonah’s clown laugh makes me giggle.

    Best podcast ever!!1!

  34. Rtousi says:

    Great Job, It was Fucking funny. My wife kicked me out of the room because I was laughing like a lunatic. Thanks for the great podcast Chris!

  35. Merc says:

    Adam Savage you are the man!! Chris thank you very much for getting Adam on the show, I am greatly looking forward to next weeks show.

  36. M@ says:

    This was one of the single most entertaining podcasts I have ever heard. It was made of pure sterling silver awesome. Adam did kill, there is no way I would have thought that was his first time doing stand-up.

    I will keep spreading the word about this podcast.

    @Steve, I cringed at the guy with the nerd voice! I was also surprised no one commented on that.

    Also, I had a nerdgasm while I was listening to this. I need a mop.

  40. Steve says:

    Fantastic show! I love the question about the chemistry safety video! That guy had THE nerd voice! Everyone in the room had to have noticed it! I’m surprised no one made a comment! God bless that guy!

  41. Wall Rod says:

    I’ve listened to the other podcasts, and those were great, but this one was fucking HILARIOUS. Awesome job.

  42. baiskeptic says:

    I almost crashed my bike listening to this it was so funny! People were staring at me all day trying to figure out why I was laughing so hard. I think I’m getting my friends to listen to this. I was raving about it for hours!
