Chris Hardwick

Chris Hardwick is a big ol’ nerd. Yet somehow instead of getting his glasses broken and playing D&D silently in his basement, he’s used his nerditude to create a hyper successful podcast, a very popular blog, and a highly anticipated upcoming book. He also hosts G4’s Web Soup, frequently contributes to Wired magazine, and performs with Mike Phirman in the musical comedy duo Hard ‘n Phirm. What a geek!
