He's the host of Talking Dead and @midnight, plus the founder of Nerdist.com and The Nerdist Podcast. You may also recognize him from his past works on Attack of the Show, Web SoupBack to the Barnyard, Sanjay & Craig or Singled Out. Regardless of how you know him, his standup is worth checking out (see his last special Mandroid and judge for yourself). Plus, he grew up in Tennessee (Memphis) so it's almost like a homecoming for him!
