Chris Hardwick is a geek. Granted, he may not be the archetypal plump, greasy Star Trek fan-fiction geek, writing a botnet computer virus to cripple the worlds banking system while mired in his own virginity, but how else do you categorize a man with chess trophies, an insect collection and a not-so-unused collection of D & D dice Following his nerdly impulses, Chris became determined to work in science programming and in August of 07 landed his dream job of hosting Wired Science for PBS and Wired Magazine. His signature WiSci segment, Whats Inside was an instant hit after casually being placed on YouTube by PBS, garnering over 100,000 downloads in its first couple of days alone. Hardwick parlayed this into a writing job for Wired Magazine and recently joined G4s Attack of the Show as the resident technical correspondent. To satisfy his inner cartoon nerd, he also voices the lead character of Otis the Cow on Nickelodeons highest rated Saturday morning show, Back at the Barnyard. In addition to a flourishing solo stand-up career, in 2003 Hardwick joined forces with his best friend Mike Phirman to form the mega-nerd musical comedy duo Hard n Phirm and found a massive Internet following with a video about the numerical value of Pi. HnP has played at numerous festivals including Aspen, the Vancouver Comedy Festival, San Francisco Sketchfest, Just for Laughs in Montreal, Bumbershoot in Seattle, SxSW in Austin and Coachella with the Comedians of Comedy. The guys recently capped off a massively successful college tour with their very own Comedy Central half hour, Comedy Central Presents: Hard n Phirm, set to air in early 2008. Currently he is a writer for Wired Magazine and is the face of AMC's first live after show Talking Dead, which airs as a platform to discuss the network's highly rated show The Walking Dead. He also hosts Talking Saul for Breaking Bad's spin-off, Better Call Saul. Older credits include Singled Out, Shipmates, numerous hosting jobs on such networks as ALL OF THEM and acting jobs ranging from shows like CSI to films like Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines and Rob Zombies House of 1000 Corpses. In 2006 he joined Kyle Gass (Tenacious D) and Laura Bell Bundy (Legally Blonde on Broadway) to portray rock star super-jerk Stacee Jaxx in the 80s hair metal musical Rock of Ages, which played in Los Angeles to rabid heshers and sold-out crowds. Chris founded Nerdist.com, a website and podcast devoted to all things nerd related. The website merged with GeekChicDaily to form Nerdist Industries, with Hardwick serving as Founder & Chief Creative Officer, and digital media entrepreneur Peter Levin serving as Chief Executive Officer. No matter the medium, Chris Hardwick has always had a skill for re-invention, adaptation, and an intense commitment to his writing that can only be described as really geeky..
