Nerd Nights

These were a series of events I did between 2011-2015 in and around Santa Monica, where I invited local fans to hang out with me. It started as private movie screenings (the first two were The Neverending Story and Time Bandits) where I rented out the entire small theatre both times.

Subsequent Nerd Nights were all Shakespeare-related - either screenings of live performances; or an actual performance put on by a couple of different, local Shakespeare troupes that I supported.

On the eleventh Nerd Night, Brian joined me, and after watching a screening of Antony & Cleopatra, we played an acoustic version of "Cleopatra" for everyone.

There was also a related daytime event that I called Dork Day, where I invited fans to bring their children out to watch a performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Time magazine did a story about my Nerd Nights, written by Joel Stein; it was originally published in the November 3, 2014 issue.
