    SciFi Comedy:

  3. Speaking of porn, this is the BEST site on tumblr or double YOUR money back:
    There are no words for the amount of awesome. It’s not safe for humanity but it’s really really not safe for work.

    The second best is

  4. BobSacamano says:

    For those asking for the porn blooper site

  5. Tone Balone says:

    Was Rob Zombie falling asleep towards the end there or did he realize what a bunch of retards you all are?

  6. Beaucifer says:

    Per the intro: Wise Guys Comedy- West Valley (Suburb of Salt Lake City) I can’t wait to see you live. Thanks for coming to my neck of the woods. I’ll be the hearing guy with all the deaf people.

  7. JetpackBlues says:

    I don’t understand how a pitch for another Real Genius didn’t come up. That was sort of a sci-fi comedy.

    C’mon Val Kilmer, Gabriel Jarret (with a NASA/Apollo 13 reference tucked in his part), William Atherton, Jon Greis all reprising or in a cameo of their previous roles? Pete Holmes as Chris Knight’s gender neutral child/new prodigy?


  8. Roy G says:


    How can you discuss scifi-comedy and fail to mention a BBC classic.
    You guys never heard of Red Dwarf ?

    Hyperspace is also pretty good.

  9. HempKnight757 says:

    Cool. So don’t approach Rob Zombie if you are a fan because he thinks you want to give him a demo tape.

  11. Chris Hardwick says:

    @Brady: actually, it gets old having to explain that the headphone jacks are, in fact, broken but it’s not our studio so we can’t fix it. 🙂

  12. FollowtheDough says:

    Let’s pants Eric. No hard feelings, Eric.

  13. Brady says:

    Get some freakin headphones in there already, doesn’t it get old hearing guests ask where they are? :/

  14. Mike J says:

    @Sheldon J – He hosted Web Soup when it was a show. Tat and some other MTV show that the set was a gigantic laptop just couldn’t catch the same following as Tosh.0 did.

    Rob seems like one of the most genuine, nice guys. A few years ago he came through my small town and put on a hell of a show. The crowd was really into it and kept requesting old songs that he could barely remember, but he kept playing way past when the show should have ended. It was so awesome.

  16. Jon says:

    Fun show. Chris did mention Galaxy Quest. Rob commented on it too. @Anthony, I checked it and it’s obvious that the majority of those people didn’t even watch the movie.

  17. Badd Andy says:

    Ho Hang!!!!

  18. Kevin says:

    “Is that a Cathy app?”


  19. Jacquie F says:

    Was Jonah’s riff on the Ben Franklin schedule a reference to the Einstein bit from the Upright Citizen’s Brigade show?

  20. Eric C. says:

    Thanks for the reply, Chris!

  21. simon h says:

    rob zombie’s broad street bullies, can’t wait

  22. Josh L. says:

    I just used that picture to draw Rob Zombies a while ago.

  23. Mescalineous says:

    Wait. Missed the part where you said “If”. My bad. Off to see my optometrist now.

  24. Mescalineous says:

    Hate to correct you, Chris, but 50:37. Sorry to be another correcty internet corrector. 🙂

  25. Chris Hardwick says:

    @Eric C: If I didn’t mention it this time, I usually cite Galaxy Quest as a perfect movie, sci-fi/comedy or otherwise. Great story, hilarious script, brilliant cast and pretty decent fx! Sci-fi comedies usually fail in more than one of those.

  26. Sheldon J says:

    I downloaded Akinatior and it guessed Chris Hardwick host of… Web Soup? Close but no cigar, Akinator.

  27. Eric C. says:

    Curtis, did they say it and I missed it? If so, my mistake, and I apologize for being an idiot.

  28. NickW says:

    Loved this podcast but can I just say Jonah has been killing it these past few podcasts. The dudes funnier than ever.

  29. Mike says:

    Nice. This just made my day!!!

  30. Adam says:

    I have been hoping for a Zombie return to the podcast. His first episode was my very first Nerdist Podcast experience.

  31. I think this is the second time I’ve hard Chris mention making a sci-fi comedy. He should really check out Transolar Galactica, amazing effects, really funny episodes.

  32. Curtis says:

    @Eric C. – Might want to recant your accusation…

  33. Eric C. says:

    Talking about sci-fi comedies and you don’t mention Galaxy Quest?!

  34. Anthony Httr Pickett says:

    Oh god….I scrolled down to the comments on the Lord’s of Salem YouTube video….what the FUCK is wrong with people….. If you want tofeel ashamed of people and just sad about life have a read. TrTrailer #1 official is the worst. The chat makes cringe more than the movie. P.S. I loved the movie… I don’t understand how people don’t like your movies but will go see themanyway then trash them because its something they can’t understand or appreciate because it doesn’t force feed them what they think horror is…anyway. rant over.

  35. Good OL MC says:

    Currently listening to and enjoying the podcast, but I REALLY want to know what the porno blooper site is. It sounds hilarious.

  36. Three Toes of Fury says:

    looking forward to this podcast..dig the mans music!
    in the mean time…whats with the extreme closeup photo of Angry Jesus?

    peace .n. thunderkissin…19655555555 yea!!!

    “Fuck” and “Yes” \m/
