GEEKING OUT is a comedy show that brings crazy-talented writers, comedians, storytellers, and actors 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. Join us for a fun-filled night of true tales and PowerPoint presentations that embrace the undying enthusiasm and unchallengeable knowledge of a SUPERFAN!
