• Chris Hardwick Joins Star Wars Celebration VI

      Comedian, actor, podcaster, and Nerdist Industries founder Chris Hardwick joins Star Wars Celebration VI as a special guest host for the biggest party in the galaxy, August 23-26 2012 in the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. While there will be three hosted stages full of programming throughout the four days of Celebration VI, there are additional can’t-miss special events planned, featuring Hardwick as the host.




      Hardwick is also one of the masterminds behind “Course of the Force,” a Star Wars-themed charity relay run going down the California coast to San Diego Comic-ConInternational this July 7-11th. This run, which celebrates the generosity of the Star Wars fan community, is a prelude to Hardwick’s participation in the ultimate Star Wars fan gathering this August. Joining Hardwick in the “Course of the Force” run are such celebrity Star Wars fans as Drew Carey, Jim Gaffigan, Jessica Parker Kennedy, Alison Haislip and Alex Albrecht, with more to be announced soon.

        I don't know this guy that well, but I've seen some stuff he's been on and he seems like he'll be a good host, so, uh cool!

        Awesome, he's really funny and a genuine geek, he straddles the line between being hip and being a nerd - I remember him first from co-hosting MTV's Singled Out, before his career really took off (I blame MTV switching Jenny McCarthy for Carmen "no personality" Electra as his co-host for why his career didn't do even better). His father is one of the top pro bowlers of all time.

        First time I really took note of him was in House of 1000 Corpses. I really like him on Talking Dead, he does a fantastic job.
        2 weeks ago I saw him at C2E2, promoting his Youtube Nerdist News channel.

        Great hire for Celebration 6 !
