Chris Hardwick and the post show video interview

This past weekend, I had the chance to catch Chris Hardwick — maybe you know him as @Nerdist on Twitter — at Helium Comedy Club in Philadelphia. It was the first time I saw him live doing a proper headlining set and have to say, was impressed. He has a masterful command of an audience, talking directly to single members throughout his set but never letting go of the rope and never at the expense of his material.

I should also mention that there were two huge bachelorette parties at the show I attended; they were sitting center stage a few rows back. I thought it would be certain disaster. But Hardwick made a few references during his set (they were hard to ignore) and went on his way, making the rest of us laugh.

After the show, Hardwick was nice enough to let me shove a Flip cam in his face backstage and have an informal chat. So, below these words there’s a video that shows how that went down. Enjoy!
