If you like funny people talking about funny stuff, then Much’s new series @Midnight is for you. The hilarious game show is hosted by comedian and Nerdist founder Chris Harwick and features three different comedians each night, battling it out for points in hopes of winning the internet. That’s right. The internet. Take your free trip around the world somewhere else, Wheel of Fortune.
Meet New Comedians
@Midnight features comedic veterans like Weird Al and Will Ferrell, but it’s also a great way to meet up and coming comedians. We’ve found some of our favourite new comedians this way, like Ron Funches and Emily Heller.
We’re Serious About Winning The Internet
This is what it looks like.
Points Are Given Arbitrarily
Take that, rule books.
You Can Play Along
Viewers can get involved in every episode with Hashtag Wars. Host Chris Hardwick picks a Hashtag topic inspired by the day’s events and you can tweet along at home. Example: #ComicConBands. Hilarious Answers: Nerdvana, Klingons of Leon, Buffy The Vampire Weekend, Dr The Who, etc.
See Your Favourite Casts Together
Like the cast of Silicon Valley.
See Your Favourite Casts Reunite
Like the cast of The State.
Feel Smart About Spending Your Day Looking At Weird Stuff Online
Because on @Midnight, knowing about that weird stuff is how you win.
Special Guest Appearances
In the same vein as Jeopardy, some of the questions are read by celebs, like
Jon Snow Kit Harrington. Turns out he does know something, and it’s what kind of woman he’s looking for. Over here, Jon Kit!
It’s Kinda Educational
You’ll learn things about the news and the world and stuff. Good for making conversation at work and parties and stuff.
It Goes There
It totally does.
Chris Hardwick Is The Best
The dude has made being a nerd cool and funny. All hail the Nerdist.Tweet
