Jim Povolo and some fellow Starkids are appearing at the Nerd Comedy Festival in Chicago, IL on June 1!
Jim announced via twitter late Friday night that he, Joseph Walker, Meredith Stepien, and Brian Holden will be performing at the festival being held at Stage 773.
The festival runs from May 30 to June 1 and features 16 different acts at Stage 773, 1225 W. Belmont Ave. for individual shows.
If members of Team Starkid being on the bill wasn’t enough reason to grab your tickets, there will also be a performance from Plan 9, a burlesque group known for performing strip teases dressed as nerdy characters such as Princess Leia, an improvised stage version of Star Trek, a Doctor Horrible drinking game, a cosplay dance party, and so much more.
The event was put together by Katie Johnston-Smith, a self proclaimed nerd. She wanted to organize a festival to feature all of the comedians and entertainers in the Chicago area that celebrate all things nerd.
If this sounds like it’s right up your alley, grab your ticket now, as they’re already on sale.
