About Geeks versus Nerds
Geeks versus Nerds is here on Canada's West Coast and we've taken up the mantle of celebrating our local geek, gamer, and comic book nerd subcultures right here in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia. Each month, we pit fan-favourite pop culture icons against each other in a battle royale of wit, hilarity, and memorable one-liners.
Established in the summer of 2012, we've taken roost at the Electric Owl Social Club - which boasts a full bar and East/West fusion menu! To date, we've produced eight awesome episodes of distinctly West Coast comedy.
Every two hour show features two debates: an Opener Debate - which usually pits two less-well-known or retro characters against each other, and a Headliner Debate - which usually features two behemoths of pop culture vying for glory. Each character is represented by a team of three (Team Geeks or Team Nerds) that argue for their candidate's right to hold the title.
It takes only $10 to attend the show - which runs on the first or second Tuesday of the month from 7 - 9 PM. (That's cheaper than a movie!). We also offer season passes to our dedicated fans at the cost of $50. For eight shows, that's the equivalent of three FREE shows! Get yours at any of our events.
We're nearly at the end of our first season, and over the course of our 8-month run, we've collected some great publicity! Check out our Press Page to see all of our reviews, interviews, and radio appearances. Also, make sure to take a look at our Podcasts Page for a look at our Podcasts and our Photos & Videos page for a look at our events!
We just wrapped up our second-last show of Season 1 - Episode 8: Powerful Princes & Princess Problems, which featured Finn the Human vs Mario and Thor vs He-Man! Our ninth night of dark cheesy humour, awesome prize giveaways, and delectible noms is coming up soon, on Tuesday - May 7th! (See below for details...)
Upcoming Debate - Episode 9: Blood and Glitter
Now that the Conclave has met and declared an end to this long-endured winter, we may proclaim that "The Finale Is Coming".
This month's first debate is bound to open a can of beans, as we pit the loyal and honourable Ned Stark against the loyal and honourable Boromir. Both have their successes and their indiscretions, but which hero's untimely death was the greater loss to their realm?
Then: The dead walk and the stallions trot, as our second debate pits two titans of terror against one another in the ultimate showdown of blood and glitter to see which is most likely to exist - Zombies or Unicorns? (Sorry Jesus and Urkel! Maybe next year!)
This month we feature the debating talents of: Breanne Fultz, Michael Lothian, Julia Poissant, Jennifer Bradley, Kate Dryden, Justin Saint, Tarrah Tanaka, Abbey Spracklin, Andrea Westaway, Adam Duff, Andrew Ferguson, and Chris Ushko. (Check out their bios here!)
