Hey, Nerdfriends!

Due to the current situation with COVID-19, we will be live-streaming our events until further notice. Our beloved venue  The North Door has closed. The folks at The North Door have been a family to us here at Nerd Nite Austin, and our hearts go out to the staff. We are extremely grateful for everything they have done for us over the years. We hope to work with them again in brighter days.

Thank You,
The Nerd Nite Austin Bosses

We put on a FREE show every month on the second Wednesday of the month.

Our Next VIRTUAL Event:

Nerd Nite 131: Nerdy Hollidays

Wednesday, December 9, 2020 at 8pm

On our Twitch Channel

There’s a lot going on right now, and a lot of things have changed, but some things are still the same. On the second Wednesday of the month, we have Nerd Nite.

Nerd Nite presents another special live-stream edition! As we’re good citizens practicing social distancing, we want to provide our community with the talks you love in the comfort and safety of your own spaces. Please join us virtually for this month’s talks!

Show starts at 8:00pm! Each talk will run around 20 minutes, with 10 minutes of Q-and-A.

** We will be taking questions from the audience via our Twitch live-stream chat channel! You will need a Twitch account to ask questions, but not to watch! **

“Cookie Cutter Trends in Christmas Romance Movies” by Holli Cuomo and Scarlett Alexandra

Holli and Scarlett will discuss the tropes and trends in most cheesy Christmas Romance movies. Plot types, relationship types, how they’re the same but we still want more.

Holli Cuomo is an Asian American stand up comedian based in Austin, Texas. She has performed all over the country, most notably with people such as Anthony Jesilnik, Martha Kelly and Jeff Dye.

Scarlett Alexandra is a swamp witch from the bowels of New Orleans. She’s directed, produced, hosted and performed in comedy shows across the city. You can also see her occasionally strumming her ukulele and singing songs about her vagina, as is required of all white hipster girls with bangs.

Together, Holli and Scarlett cohost the NetfliXmas Podcast where they lampoon Christmas romances seen on streaming services. As with many heroines in such Christmas movies, their love lives have been tumultuous and are both friends with an actual Prince in real life.

As always, Nerd Nite is free. If you want to, you can RSVP to our Facebook event, or just virtually show up. Talks may not happen in the order stated so sit back, relax, and enjoy the virtual show!
