What do Royal Oak, Michigan and State College, Pennsylvania have in common? At first blush, not a lot. One is a reasonably trendy, shopping-and-bar-filled suburb of Detroit, the other is a verdant college town in the mountains, home to Penn State and a long drive from anywhere else (Altoona doesn’t count). Oh, there IS one thing they have in common: Both will host the Nerdist Podcast Live in April, and tickets for both go on sale this week.
Yes, people of Greater Detroit and Happy Valley, Chris Hardwick and his trusted compatriots Jonah Ray and Matt Mira will be coming to your areas soon. First, they’ll be appearing on Friday, April 20th at the Royal Oak Music Theatre in, naturally enough, Royal Oak, Michigan, then, after washing down their Coneys with some Faygo, they’ll find their way through the Western Pennsylvania woods to State College for a show Saturday, April 21st at the State Theatre, and I trust they’ll find the Creamery on campus while they’re there. Tickets for both shows will be available for presale Wednesday, February 1st, and here are the relevant details:
ROYAL OAK: The show is Friday, April 20th at 7 pm. Presale starts Wednesday, February 1st at noon Eastern and ends Friday at 11:50 am Eastern. The password is nerdist. Tickets go on regular sale on Friday (2/3) at noon Eastern. You’ll find tickets by clicking here.
STATE COLLEGE: The show is Saturday, April 21st at 8 pm. Presale starts Wednesday, February 1st at noon Eastern, and ends Thursday at 10 pm. The password is, once again, nerdist. Regular ol’ ticket sales will start on Friday (2/3) at noon Eastern. And you can buy tickets by clicking here.
If you’re anywhere near Detroit (Windsor, Ann Arbor, even Toledo and Flint, I’m lookin’ at you) or State College (come on, what is it, two-and-a-half hours from Pittsburgh? Couple hours from Harrisburg? Piece of cake), come on out and enjoy an evening of standup and podcast goodness courtesy of your pals Chris, Jonah, and Matt. They’ll be happy to see you, too.
