Festival Details - "Words with Nerds"...

End: Thursday, July 18, 2024 8:30PM

Join us on Thursday, July 18 as Best of Madison winner Cheshire Cat Comedy celebrates two years of Words with Nerds! A great show for information sponges who love to laugh.

Words with Nerds mixes TED Talks with stand-up by bringing together local specialists and comedians to present on a topic of their choice. Come for the laughs and walk away with strange new knowledge – previous performers have regaled audiences with presentations about dinosaur rib anatomy, a principal component analysis of the Taco Bell Menu, nipple equality activism in Madison, how people misuse statistics, what can be learned from watching 100 Hallmark movies, how to perform self-surgery, and much, much more.

Speakers and topics at this show include:

Davis Remmel - “Extraterrestrial Object Gemini 4”

Dane Arden - “How to Navigate Dating Apps as a Dorky Little Nerd”

Sasha Rosser - “A Deep Dive into the Scientific Plausibility of Dune”

PLUS: Stand-up comedy by special guests!

Past presenters span local entrepreneurs, professors, researchers, activists, union organizers, surgeons, engineers, and stand-up comedians with an itch to nerd out on stage.

Words with Nerds is produced by Best of Madison-winner Cheshire Cat Comedy and began in 2022 as a monthly event on the third Thursday of every month at Crucible, Madison’s premier alternative arts club. The showcase has since blossomed into a regular feature showcase at locations such as The Forward Club at Breese Stevens Field and Comedy Cabin in Janesville, Wisconsin.

Every now and then, Words with Nerds adds in a little splash of something extra; past examples include Rick Sanchez of Rick and Morty performing a burlesque number and Batman doing stand-up comedy.
