GEEKING OUT SEPT 2013

Geeking Out is a comedy & storytelling show that brings crazy-talented performers together for a night of shameless nerding out on the bands they love, the celebrities they obsess over and the video games that nearly wore their thumbs to stumps (and that’s just the tip of the fanatical iceberg).

Join us for a night of true tales, stand-up and PowerPoint presentations that embrace the undying enthusiasm and unchallengeable knowledge of a SUPERFAN!
