It will be on at 12 am following ‘Colbert,’ and co-produced by Nerdist, Tom Lennon & Ben Garant and Funny Or Die. As per the content, Deadline reports, “The show, Comedy Central’s first midnight strip, will be formatted as a comedic panel show that will have a heavy social-media presence integrated throughout.”
In the past on his podcast, Hardwick described his Comedy Central pilot as a pop culture spin on The Daily Show and also likened it to ‘Attack of the Show.’ How much of that remains is to be seen. This will be his third on-going chat show across three different networks.
Even more interesting is it puts Hardwick in direct timeslot competition with fellow Nerdist network podcaster and friend Pete Holmes.
On today’s special edition of The Nerdist Channel’s ALL-STAR CELEBRITY BOWLING, the industrious cast of Comedy Central’s Workaholics (Adam DeVine, Anders Holm, Blake Anderson, and Kyle Newacheck) take on Chris Hardwick, Chris Hardwick, Chris Hardwick and uhh… Chris Hardwick!
Chris Hardwick’s All-Star Celebrity Bowling is back and this time Team Nerdist takes on a team from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). Yes, it’s the NASA’s Curiosity Mars Rover team. Can the actual rocket scientists figure out how to beat the Nerdist juggernaut in a high-stakes bowling match?
So! Here is the trailer for a web series I’ll be hosting, where I chat with cool people over actual alcoholic drinks. We’ve shot a dozen of these so far and I am grateful to have been asked to host them. I got to have interesting conversations with strangers and friends alike.
