A Release from the Press!
My Chat w/ Stan Lee at NAB Show!

Tech Guru Chris Hardwick Will Join Comic Book Legend Stan Lee As Moderator For 2010 NAB Show Session

WASHINGTON, DC — The NAB Show, the annual conference and expo for professionals who create, manage and distribute entertainment across all platforms, announced today that actor, comedian and technology commentator Chris Hardwick of “Web Soup” and fame will moderate “In Conversation with: Stan Lee” at the 2010 NAB Show. The session is set for Wednesday, April 14 at 9:00 am.

Hardwick will record the session for subsequent broadcast on “The Nerdist,” his newly launched podcast, which in recent weeks has welcomed celebrity guests like “Mad Men” star Jon Hamm, Drew Carey, and Linkin Park lead singer Mike Shinoda.

Stan Lee is the Founder of POW! Entertainment and has served as its Chairman and Chief Creative Officer since inception. He is also known as the man whose super heroes propelled Marvel to its preeminent position in the comic book industry. His co-creations include Spider-Man, The Incredible Hulk, X-Men, The Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Daredevil, Silver Surfer and Dr. Strange. Now the Chairman Emeritus of Marvel Media, Lee creates new intellectual property for POW!, which has been in operation since 2001.

“In Conversation with: Stan Lee” will focus on Mr. Lee’s history, his process for creating flawed and believable comic book heroes, his recent projects with POW!, and his incredible contributions to modern mythology.

Stan Lee said, “Wow! I’m really looking forward to being on the bill at the great NAB Show and talking about the one subject on which I’m something of an authority– me! While still dreaming up new projects at POW! Entertainment, I get a kick out of watching my comicbook heroes take on a new life in every form of media– and now in 3D! My career has been a wild ride and it will be fun to relive some of the great moments on stage at NAB Show.”

Chris Hardwick said, “I am truly honored to have the opportunity to chat with Stan Lee, a man more fascinating to me than any comic book character. The fact that the NAB Show is allowing me to freely put this out as an episode of the Nerdist Podcast is a wonderful gift to the legions of Stan Fans who will not be able to attend this exciting event. As one of Mr. Lee’s loyal ‘true believers,’ I am ready to listen up!”

Chris Hardwick is a writer and producer for, and the host of, G4 TV’s “Web Soup.” He is also the resident Tech Correspondent for G4’s flagship program “Attack of the Show,” a recurring panelist on “Chelsea Lately” and is a contributing writer for Wired Magazine. @nerdist, Hardwick’s Twitter profile, has 1.3 million followers.

    The next time I read a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this one. I mean, I do know it was my option to read, however I truly thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you would repair for those who werent too busy searching for attention.

  2. targowa says:

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything. Nevertheless just imagine if you added some great pictures or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this blog could definitely be one of the very best in its field. Amazing blog!

    Thanks for the tips you have provided here. Something important I would like to mention is that computer memory requirements generally increase along with other advances in the technology. For instance, when new generations of processors are brought to the market, there is certainly usually a related increase in the type preferences of both the personal computer memory as well as hard drive room. This is because the software program operated by way of these processors will inevitably increase in power to use the new technological innovation.

    Hmm it appears like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any recommendations for inexperienced blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

  7. Normally I do not read article on blogs, but I would like to say that this write-up very forced me to try and do so! Your writing style has been surprised me. Thanks, very nice post.

  11. Ashleigh says:

    That’s amazing Chris!! I can’t wait to hear it! I love Marvel.

  12. Roscoe says:

    You know, Stan maimed the last two people who tried to moderate him. All I’m saying is be careful. And watch for the claw hold; it’s vicious.

  13. Dawn says:

    Congrats Chris! Don’t be nervous or anything I mean he is an icon after all and the nerd out will be justified. 😀 Now remember one thing and one thing only. Just breathe. You will do fine.
