Geeks vs. Nerds Episode 50: The Ultimate Showdown!
9:30pm - Thursday, Apr 18, 2019
Each month for the past seven years we have pit two teams of three comedians and pop culture aficionados against each other to answer those questions that no one else as the guts, tenacity, or interest to investigate. The object of the show is simple: Secure the title for your team's candidate using facts, obscure knowledge, and trash-talk.
This month we are excited to celebrate our 50th episode at the Rio Theatre by bringing back two debate from our very first season for a re-match! The opening debate will be Hermione Granger vs Willow Rosenberg "Which brainy bookworm is the better witchy sidekick?" followed the debate that started it all: Batman vs Boba Fett "Who is the bigger badass?"

Geeks and Nerds have been debating pop culture minutia for years: Yoda vs Gandalf, Borg vs Daleks, Zombies vs Unicorns. For decades we've been having these arguments, so finally, we stepped out of the shadows to once and for all decide the victors in these heated, trivial matters. And after 50 episodes it's finally come to this... THE ULTIMATE SHOWDOWN! (Of Ultimate Destiny!)
Celebrate our 50th episode (and 100th debate) of Vancouver's #1 geeky comedy debate show in style, as we take over Vancouver's historic Rio Theatre. And to celebrate this achievement, we've revisiting two landmark topics from our first season of the show. This is a special episode not to be missed!
Opener - Our first #Femageddon headliner returns with these two popular bookworms battling it out to see which is the witchiest witch! It's Willow Rosenberg vs Hermione Granger: Which brainy bookworm is the better witchy sidekick?
Headliner - Then, we're going back to the old school. Just two men in super suites being total bosses. It's a redo of our first ever Headliner first done way back in September 2012. Batman vs Boba Fett: Who is the bigger badass?
