    Brent is Hilarious! I quite enjoyed this episode. Great Patrick Stewart impression, great stories, Matt being a total fanboy, loved it
    Also, I’m not ashamed to admit that i squealed like a fangilrl when Brent Mentioned Benedict and probably made the same face as that woman and @Hannah. Yup, I Cumberbatched all over this podcast….. wow that really does sound wrong….
    Anyways, thanks for another hysterical show.

  6. Jed says:

    Seriously one of my favorite interviews. Brent is hilarious and the timing between you all was great. Definitely need to do a round 2!
    Side: the Sir Patrick impressions were, “spot on.”

    This has to be one of my Top 5 episodes of this podcast. Brent is SO funny and the podcast was entertaining and interesting on so many levels. I grew up on Star Trek, though I never reached full Trekkie status, and just hearing the stories about the behind the scenes things and hearing Brent’s impression of Patrick Stewart made me laugh. It was a day I really needed a laugh that I listened to this too, so thanks, Nerdist types. 🙂 Keep doing what you do.

    I have to agree with Sean wholeheartedly! This was a blast to listen to–Brent is so talented and very funny and witty! It is hard to believe he is not on tv all the time. Someone needs to write a show just for him! Or, better yet, put “Fresh Hell” on tv!!!!! Thanks, “nerdists,” for being so funny yourselves and for having Brent on the show. A great, chuckle out loud, show!!!

  9. Sean says:

    This is hands-down the funniest episode of the show I’ve heard. Bring back Brent as often as possible!

I mean, when you think about it, when you really thi — wait a minute, this is the 51st post. Crap. This is going to start a whole new page! With that “older comments” arrow thingy link and everything! Shit. *pant pant* Crap. What do I say? What do I do??

    Uh, h-hello folks. Welcome to the Nerdist podcast. This is a great episode. A lot of laughs. A sick-ass Patrick Stewart impression — you’ll see, you’ll see. So go ‘head! Download and enter Data. You’ll be glad you did. *bing!*
