Chris Hardwick Profiled In LA Weekly’s ‘Best Of L.A. People’ Issue

Photo: Kevin Scanlon for LA Weekly

Look what we have here: LA Weekly has its annual People issue profiling a wide range of prominent, important, or just cool people in town. No, I am not one of those people (not since at least 2004, I guess). But our esteemed leader Chris Hardwick is, and he’s the subject of a nice article by our own Nicole Campos that discusses the growth of this site, the podcast, and the Nerdist Industries empire, and it comes accompanied by a cool photo we can call “I’m On a Bike.” Because he is.

The paper is at the usual pick-up spots TODAY (with one of the cover shots being a lovely picture of Patton Oswalt with his dog), but in this Internetty world, you don’t have to be in L.A. to read about all things Hardwickian. Simply click here for the whole thing.

    Great job Big C!

  6. Chris Hardwick says:

    Thanks all! That Schwinn is up in my office space at Meltdown. It weighs way more than you think it’s going to. We were just grabbing junk and shooting in the NerdMelt theater. Somewhere in the photographer’s Aperture collection, I’m also wielding a broadsword.

  7. Jim Simonetti says:

    We are so proud of you Big C!!!!!! Keep up the great work

  8. The picture’s in color — muted color, but color nonetheless — in the print edition, page 38.

  9. Jason says:

    Is that bike a metaphor? ‘Cause the front tire’s flacc… err, flat.


    You deserve all the success, Mr.H! You rock!!

  12. Wade says:

    You’re metastasising rapidly through the public!
    [enjoying that the picture also has ‘bicycle’ tagged]

  15. Rod says:

    Damn – lucky bike seat.

  16. LizTheCanadian says:

    @Cheri – Node has been a lifesaver for me, last fall/winter if I didn’t have those folks I don’t know what I would have done.
    So thank you Chris! Can’t wait to tell you that in person at your Seattle show!

  17. Cheri says:

    yay! great article! and like I said before, I don’t think it’s the bike the ladies love in that pic 😉
    @Patti-I’ve only been on the Node for like a month, but it’s so much fun ! I feel like we’re a nerd army of sorts lol

  18. Patti says:

    Nice article, and may I say again, badass pic, and who cares if the bike has flat tires? I wasn’t looking at the damn bike, anyway. 😉 Thanks for mentioning Node, Chris. I love that place! I’ve made some great friends and have had fun creating, talking and getting to know Nodies from everywhere.
