Chris Hardwick

When: Fri., Nov. 8, 8 p.m. 2013

It's hard to believe that Chris Hardwick, this embodiment of fan boy enthusiasm, was once the cranky host of MTV's dating show Singled Out, where he kept frat boys and sorority girls at bay while more popular co-host Jenny McCarthy bounced and mugged for the camera. Perhaps those angsty, Gen X-crazy times didn't appeal to an avowed nerd such as Hardwick, who seems quite at peace in this geek-arific age. He's also apparently angling to be the nerd version of Ryan Seacrest, hosting one TV show after another. Apart from recently doing a cable version of his Nerdist podcast on BBC America, he's also just started hosting Comedy Central's late-night program @midnight. This week, he'll be preaching to the Tar Heel masses as part of NC Comicon—but we're sure you could also ask him questions like, "Was Jenny McCarthy always that goddamn goofy off-camera?" —Craig D.
