Nerdbytes: Course of the Force Gets Hosty
Plus, Reactions to the Red Wedding, a contest of witch-hunting proportions and Set List live!
Course of the Force Gets a Host of Hosts – This year’s Course of the Force has just announced the hosts and correspondents and it’s like a Jedi Council of awesome. Jessica Chobot, Alison Haislip, Alex Albrecht, Shira Lazar, Carrie Keagan, Ashley Eckstein and our own Chris Hardwick will be on hand to share in the massive coastal event, though which of them is Kit Fisto is for them to decide.
Witch-Hunting Swag – The fairy tale action/comedy Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters hits Blu-ray and DVD shelves next Tuesday and we’re giving away one (1) copy of the Combo Pack, signed by Gretel herself, Gemma Arterton. For your chance to win, enter this contest. Do it by June 18th or no amount of gingerbread crumbs will lead you out of the Disappointed Forest.
Nice Day for a Red Wedding – After Game of Thrones subjected audiences to the now-infamous “Red Wedding” scene, the internet became alight with reaction videos of people watching said scene. Effin Funny had a reaction to these reaction videos and things got out of hand quickly. Hopefully you weren’t too attached to Sandeep Parikh.
Comedy Without a Net, on the Net – Fans of unscripted, never before attempted stand-up comedy will be happy to know that this week there are two chances to see a LIVE Set List performance. Tonight at 6:30pm PT you can laugh at Todd Barry, Renee Gauthier, Moshe Kasher, Brendon Walsh and Kumail Nanjiani, and Friday night at 10:00pm PT it’s Chelsea Peretti, Theo Von, Sam Simmons and Todd Glass. Head to Nerdist.com to watch the insanity.
