Nerdist by. Casey Weldon

The Nerdist is a website that shockingly featuring articles on nerd culture. The Nerdist Podcast is a weekly show that has Chris Hardwick, Jonah Ray, and Matt Mira talk to special guests about their careers and working process (with many dangling threads of conversation). Previous stand outs on the Nerdist podcast include Donald Glover, Marc Maron, and The Muppets. The trio is bringing their show to the road via SF Sketchfest. Accompanying them on this journey is this guy:

Arguably one of the biggest names in comedy, Mr. Zach Galifianakis. Zach was on a recent episode of Doug Loves Movies and continued to prove his place in our hearts as a witty motherfucker. Pardon the French Bread. None the less, this show went from steal, to robbery, to arson, to mail fraud, to treason. That’s right. If you don’t make it to this show and you are of sound situation (monetarily, mentally) you are committing comedy treason. With that said:


Onion Juice: Countdown to the Purple Onion

Zach Galifianakis: Live at the Purple Onion is one of the most personally influential comedy DVDs. Released in 2007, the movie proved to be the bonding force between me and one of my best friends, Caleb Welsh. The movie started a number of friendships but it was with Caleb and I that my comedic mind started bubbling overtime. Our senses of humor clicked absurdly well, and when our school hosted a small open-mic comedy event we looked to each other for inspiration. Hours were spent at the Xtreme Bean in Tempe, AZ; writing jokes in Lisa Frank folders trying to make each other laugh. Every comic has a friend that they wish followed in their pursuits of comedy, because they hold their friend in greater comedic esteem than themselves (the better funny person syndrome I guess). Well Caleb was/is that for me, and knowing him is all thanks to Mr. Galifianakis.
