Chris Hardwick, the crowned King of the Nerds, is bringing his Funcomfortable Tour to Central Florida in August for two shows in Orlando and Tampa.
Hardwick is the creator of popular pop-culture site Nerdist, which has branched out over the years to podcasts, video, and more. He is also host of TV shows like AMC’s “Talking Dead” and Comedy Central’s “@Midnight with Chris Hardwick,” an actor/writer/producer/musician/voice artist, and a regular moderator for panels at the annual Comic-Con.
When he has the time, he loves to add stand-up comedian to his multi-hyphenate job title, and the Funcomfortable Tour is serving as a warm-up for recording another comedy special. His first, “Mandroid,” was popular in its Comedy Central airings in 2012, and can be found on DVD/Digital.
With more than 900,000 subscribers to his YouTube channel, 2.3 million Twitter fans and a podcast with 5 million monthly downloads, Hardwick is one of the funniest and most influential faces in nerd culture today.
If you want to see how funny he can be, you can catch him at the following Central Florida stops on the Funcomfortable Tour:
He’ll be at the Hard Rock Live Orlando on Friday, August 7. Tickets are $35.50 plus tax/fees and can be purchased at hardrock.com and at the box office.
