In 1984, Irish comedian/nerd Des O’Gorman was born into a time when being a nerd was not only not
cool, it was embarrassing. However, Des fought to keep his geeky dreams alive.
Join Des on a journey from a nerdy boy to a nerdy man. This funny show answers all the important
questions in nerd culture:
Who remembers the hurricanes?
Which is more important: football or Red Dwarf?
How important is the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air?
This limited edition 3 day run is for anyone who is even a little bit nerdy.
“An equally touching and hilarious journey through the life of a nerd. You will laugh, you will cry and
you will experience the perfect fusion of comedy and nostalgia. Do not miss this” – Ash Pryce, The
Edinburgh Geek and Nerd Festival
