Chris Hardwick talks stand-up, romance and bringing his ID10T Fest to Southern California
Chris Hardwick is easily one of the busiest guys in Hollywood. Not only does he host “The Walking Dead” and “Fear the Walking Dead” after show, “Talking Dead” on AMC, he’s also hosting NBC’s new game show, “The Wall,” and he recently made the decision to change the title, but not the vibe, of his popular and long-running Nerdist Podcast to the ID10T (Idiot) Podcast earlier this month.
.The title, ID10T, comes from the technical term for a computer error caused by a human and was also the name of Hardwick’s curated ID10T Music Festival + Comic Conival, which took place over two days at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Silicon Valley last summer.
Ahead of Hardwick fleshing out some new stand-up material for a forthcoming one-hour special at the Brea Improv in Orange County on Friday, Feb. 16 and Saturday, Feb. 17, he shared that the ID10T Fest was actually going to return, this time coming to the OC Fair & Event Center in Costa Mesa Saturday, Nov. 3 and Sunday, Nov. 4. Though further details have yet to be announced, the format will be similar to the inaugural event, which included a Comic-con like vendor experience, television, film and podcast discussion panels and screenings, a stand-up comedy stage and the days will be capped with live music performances.
