A long way removed from a puzzling early career that found him sarcastically hosting the frat-tastic MTV dating show “Singled Out” in the ‘90s, Chris Hardwick has developed into a solid comic talent with his popular Nerdist blog and podcast, which made the leap to television on BBC America earlier this year. This live podcast taping will deliver more nods to comic books and further tributaries of nerd culture with guests Jonah Ray and Matt Mira. Nokia Theatre, 800 W. Olympic Blvd., L.A. Sat. 7:30 p.m. $16.50-$26.50 https://www.ticketmaster.com.
