On Thursday, June 30th, the whip smart and crazy fun comedy team of Tom Lennon and Ben Garant visited The Nerdist gang for a rollicking podcast recording that stretched into the night. The fun took place at The Nerdist Theater at Meltdown Comics.
Lennon and Garant were on hand to promote the release of their screening writing book, Writing Movies For Fun and Profit. First, there was a visit from Kumail Nanjiani discussing his citizenship ceremony from earlier the same day. Immediately from the get-go, Lennon and Garant were high energy and comedy, high-fiving and accosting audience members. As a Nerdist show is apt to do, the discussion zipped from topic to topic, including their book, Hollywood stories, experiences on The State and even a therapeutic dissection of The Suicide Girls photo book Lennon grabbed from the front of Meltdown Comics. Chris Hardwick steered the ship with Matt Mira and Jonah Ray providing timely inappropriate remarks. Steve Agee was even on hand taking photos alongside Liezl Estipona. No word yet on the episode's plop date. Stay tuned.
