At the end of 1984's Revenge of the Nerds, Gilbert and Lewis give a speech in which they publicly acknowledge and accept their nerdiness in the coming-of-age scene required of all '80s movies. A lot has changed since then. Now, instead of name calling, we name check nerds, secretly envious of them and wishing we'd founded Facebook. Or Apple. Mostly Apple.
MC Chris, aka Chris Ward, aka the voice of Sealab 2021 engineer Hesh Hepplewhite, has long embraced his geek within and parlayed his squeaky voice and kooky sense of humor into a successful rap career. He returns to Boise with a stop on his Revenge of the Nerd 2 tour, and all geeks, dorks, spazzes and, of course, nerds are welcome. Pocket protectors not required.
