Chris Hardwick and ID10T

Everyone knows Chris Hardwick’s podcast ID10T but do you know where the name comes from?

ID10T is a joke IT code that essentially means [user error]. I like it because it reminds us that we can take responsibility for our own lives.

or If you prefer it as a limerick:

There once was a code, t’was a joke
Meant [user error], a jolly nerd wrote
I liked it because,
It doth remind us
That we are all in the same friggin’ boat.

Either way means the same thing. You can see it written many different ways on ID10T.com and changing the mood filter. It is really fun to read it as a pirate. You know what is also fun…. Seeing Chris Hardwick live at Comedy Works Downtown April 11th – 13th!

 

Norm Macdonald and The Perfect Joke

 

“His refusal to stop saying things like that on TV fits his image, among his fans, as a comedian who prioritizes the joke above all else — even his career.” says NyTimes reporter, Dan Brooks. Brooks goes on to say “To his thinking, though, he has moved steadily closer to his own ideal of what comedy can or should be.” Norm MacDonald has always been one of a kind. The unapologetic and truthful yet silly humor that Norm has on stage is unrivaled. Come see for yourself at Comedy Works South at the Landmark on April 12th and 13th!

Nimesh Patel Conversation with Joe Rogan

Despite Nimesh Patel being the first Indian writer on Saturday Night Live, the students at Columbia University think they know comedy better than him. Last year Nimesh was asked to do a show celebrating the asian culture at Columbia University and part way through his set, the organizers took the microphone away from him. Listen to his response on The Joe Rogan Experience! You should definitely get tickets to Nimesh Patel at Comedy Works Downtown in Larimer Square March 31st and April 1st!
