Geek of the Week: Chris Hardwick

Chris Hardwick is probably best known to mainstream audiences as A) the male host of Mtv's "Singled Out" (along with Jenny McCarthy, and later Carmen Electra) or B) one of the four unfortunate teens killed by the Firefly family in Rob Zombie's House of 1000 Corpses. What many don't know is that he is also a geeky Renaissance man. In addition to hosting G4's "Web Soup" and acting as the main technology reviewer for the channel's flagship program "Attack of the Show" (on the "Gadget Pr0n" segment), Hardwick also writes for Wired magazine and hosts "Wired Science for PBS". If that weren't enough, he does voice over work for animated TV shows and films and performs in the uber geeky two-man band Hard 'n Phirm.

Here, Hardwick explains the Hard 'n Phirm song "Pi" for PBS:

And here is the music video for "Pi":
