If one were to build an army of geeks, Chris Hardwick would be your general. The side-splitting funny man has a geek pedigree that cannot be rivaled, with hosting duties on G4's awesome Attack of the Show! and Talking Dead among his impressive credits. In addition to this, he literally has his own "nerd media empire" after his much beloved Nerdist Podcast merged with GeekChicDaily to form Nerdist Industries. Fun fact: Hardwick has been near lifelong friends with another geek on our list, Wil Wheaton, and even roomed with him at UCLA, where Hardwick studied philosophy.
