"The Geek Show" showdown at Comiccon!


Montreal_comiccon.jpgIt's cool to be a geek these days. The Comic-Con events across North America are proof of that.
The big fan conventions for comics, sci-fi, fantasy, horror and gaming draw more and more star power from Hollywood and TV and lots of mainstream media attention.

Montreal Comiccon opens next week at the Palais des congrès. Patrick Stewart, William Shatner and Malcom McDowell are some of the big names coming here.

Comedians Mike Patterson and Dan Bingham will be there too. They're celebrating geek culture in a comedy show called "The Geek Show". They spoke with Sonali Karnick about getting their "geek" on.

On Sunday night, the Quebec election will be cannon fodder for a group of Montreal comedians at an event called "Registered to Joke: A Pre-Election Standup Show" at the Comedy Nest in Montreal.

Peter Radomski and Derek Seguin are two comedians who will be riffing on the political landscape tonight and they spoke with Sonali Karnick before the show.
