We’re less than a week away from The Chicago Nerd Comedy Festival, and we’re excited to say our own Dave Martin will be joining Lex Lutz and Matt Peters, who you should recognize from the fantastic podcast, Lex & Matt’s Excellent Adventure. If not, you should really get on that post haste. Also, we’ll be privileged to enjoy the presence of the incomparable Dee Peters, who you may have enjoyed on many Resnackulous adventures on podcasts such as Since Last We Spoke, and G.C.P.D., the Games, Comics, and Puppy Dogs Podcast.
Matt and Lex will be kicking off the four-day festival Wednesday evening, with a live version of Lex & Matt’s Excellent Adventure, followed by a bit of Digital Dumpster Diving, and some Resnackulous adventures with…unconventional comestibles. Be prepared to be amused, perhaps a bit nauseated, but most definitely entertained.
