Neil Patrick Harris, Bill Nye, Stephen Hawking, and the cast of Doctor Who may seem like a strange combination but The Nerdist Channel is making it work. In a preview for their programming, Nerdist Industries has managed to find a wonderful geeky balance between fun, science, and hilarious ridiculousness (see learning to tie a bow tie with Bill Nye, the Science Guy). The latter especially refers to Harris’ series “Neil’s Puppet Dreams,” which sounds and looks just crazy enough to be awesome.
Plus, I think NPH has proven that there’s really nothing he can’t do. Then for all you science lovers there’s “Stephen Hawking: The Nature of Black Holes,” where the theoretical physicist leads you through the universe. But depending on whether or not you’re a Whovian (like Hardwick) the best part of the preview is the news that the cast of Doctor Who will be featured on an episode of “Chris Hardwick’s All Star Bowling.”
Team Nerdist faces of with Team Who for charity in a match that is sure to be out of this world. Because after all, bowling is cool. Also on the Nerdist’s upcoming lineup are: “The Awkward Family Show,” “Cops: Skyrim,” “Gif Gif City,” “Just Cos,” “Nerdterns,” “Star Talk with Neil deGrasse Tyson,” and much more, including new episodes of current shows like “Face to Face with Weird Al Yankovic” and “Four Points with Alex Albrecht.”
