So it went with the “Star Wars” Course of the Force party at Hard Rock Hotel’s rooftop Float bar last night.

Chris Hardwick, famous for his work at G4, his Nerdist podcast and website, his stand-up comedy career, and his amazing hair, is now partnering up with YouTube to create a Nerdist channel, filled with all sort of awesome new content from him and his partners, people like the Jim Henson company, Neil Patrick Harris, and Weird Al!

Adapting something made for audio – like, say, a podcast about super nerdy stuff hosted by three dudes – into video is a tough proposition. It’s not that you can’t, it’s just that, particularly with a comedic program, the jokes are just different. Visually, you’re going to hit things differently than you would with audio. So credit to The Nerdist and crew for nailing it on their first time out. Read More...

This June, BBC America is launching a Saturday night lineup of comedy programming for us here in the colonies (do they even say that anymore) called the "Ministry of Laughs" with perennial host and Twitter monster Chris Hardwick (The Soup, Attack of the Show, Singled Out) handling hosting duties. From the press release, it seems like Hardwick will be out front before and during each show, delivering witty bon bots between during commercial breaks. The deal has also netted Hardwick his own pilot based on his Nerdist podcast, which will be a panel show in the vein of its digital counterpart.

The new late-night comedy lineup seems to be a companion to the sci-fi content that typically runs on BBCA Saturday nights (Doctor Who, Being Human), and it's interesting to see the network fleshing out its regular offerings beyond Next Generation and Top Gear reruns in the unoccupied timeslots. I have to say that over the last couple of years, BBCA has been pretty aggressive about exposing viewers to a lot of original BBC content and I look forward to the point when the weekly lineup is as robust as the Saturday night schedule, which is where the heavy-hitters are usually slotted.

Now if only the brilliant Peep Show made it back into the rotation. Read More...
