As some of you may know, Geek Hard is returning to Comedy Bar (945 Bloor Street West, Toronto) this Saturday at 7PM. It’s GEEK HARD LIVE once again and the night should be stellar. For those that love their nerd comedy, it will be a real treat. I know some of you are still on the fence on whether or not you should buy tickets. So here’s 5 Reasons Why you should come to this fantastic show. After hearing them, I’m pretty sure you won’t have a reason not to.
Here we go…..
1. KICK-ASS GUESTS!
Anyone who’s listened to the Geek Hard radio show and podcast knows that one of the main features of our show is our fun and informative interviews. Okay, they’re more fun than they are informative. We always strive to give you an entertaining look at some of your favourite actors, comic creators, directors….etc. At GEEK HARD LIVE it’s no different. We always have great guests at these shows. For this Saturday’s installment, we’ve got some amazing ones lined up.
For Orphan Black fans, we have the gentleman, Josh Vokey. Josh is best known as Scott, an important part of Team Science Megaforce. Season 5 of OB is coming this June and we might just get a tease from Josh on what to expect from the final run of the series. We also have the duo of Matt Johnson and Jay McCarrol, a.k.a. Nirvanna the Band, on hand to talk about how they took their decade old web series and resurrected it as a hit show on Viceland. We’re gonna take a deep dive into the making of the show and maybe get some insight into what’s going down for the duo next season.
2. MUSIC YOU CAN TAKE HOME WITH YOU!
Our headliner for the evening will be musician Leslie Hudson. Known to Geek Hard audiences as host Andrew’s long time adversary (as well as co-host on the new podcast, Don’t Make Me Watch That!), Hudson is one of the best performers out there and her songs about Star Trek, redheaded female superheroes and folklore are pretty fucking awesome. Not only will you hear her super nerdy songs that evening, you’ll also get a chance to take them home with you. Leslie will have CDs of Yeoman on the Bridge (a Star Trek inspired album) and The Redhead League (songs all about redheaded female comic book characters) available for purchase at the show. You’ll get to sample her songs live and in person as she belts ’em out on stage before you buy. That’s a deal!
3. PRIZES TO BE WON!
If you’ve attended GEEK HARD LIVE in the past, you already know we give out great prizes. It’s no different this time around as The Silver Snail (Toronto’s best known comic shop) has provided us with a lovely selection of action figures that we’ll be giving away to one lucky audience member. We’ve even added in a comic hardcover and mug from the Geek Hard prize mountain to sweeten the deal. If you don’t come to the show, you’ll miss your chance to win all this cool stuff!
4. A SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT FROM MR. GREEN?
Near the end of last Friday’s episode of Geek Hard, Mr. Green let slip that there may be a special announcement at the show. He didn’t say anything else on the matter so who knows what he’s got planned. He might not say anything at all. BUT HE MIGHT HAVE SOMETHING BIG TO SAY! The anticipation is killing us and I know you want to get to the bottom of this just as much as we do. The only way to find out is by coming to the show.
5. ANDREW MAY HAVE NEW CO-HOST!
Andrew’s teased in the past that he’d love to get rid of Mr. Green and at this show, he just might do it. Word is he’s got a few tricks up his sleeve and a replacement waiting in the wings. GEEK HARD LIVE might be the birth of something brand new! What will be even more fun is seeing Mr. Green’s reaction to this, LIVE and in person.
BONUS: 6. PARKER AND SEVILLE!
That’s right, we couldn’t leave things at 5 Reasons. We’ve got another reason you should come and they’re a sketch comedy duo that’s pretty damn hilarious. Parker & Seville will be opening the show with a 15 minute set and we can’t wait for you to see ’em. Now we’ve given you 6 reasons to come. What more do you want?
So there you go. 5 Reasons (and then some). Stop sitting on the fence and take a stand. Stand with your fellow geeks and come out to see GEEK HARD LIVE, Saturday, April 29th at Comedy Bar in Toronto. Admission is $10. You can purchase tickets in advance by clicking on the “Get Your Tickets Here” text below. That will take you to the Comedy Bar event page and hook you up.
