Kevin Geeks Out About...Wrestling

Kevin Geeks Out is the comedy-variety show hosted by writer-comedian Kevin Maher—a confabulation of vintage film clips and videos, new finds, guest experts, games and curiosities. To geek out with Kevin you don’t need to be a geek, you just need to love cool stuff.

This March, in anticipation of Wrestlemania, Kevin Geeks Out about WRESTLING, celebrating some of the weirdest, wildest moments in sports entertainment. The two-hour cultural cavalcade includes guest speakers presenting rare film footage and TV clips you won’t find on YouTube or Netflix. 

The all-star line-up includes:

* Former WWE Magazine editor
BRIAN SOLOMON shares his surreal retrospective "7 Years in the Tower: What I Learned Working for WWE" and presents a clip of Rowdy Roddy Piper discussing his role in John Carpenter's They Live!

* Author and raconteur MIKE EDISON grapples with that great existential conundrum, Was Andy Kaufman the Greatest Wrestler of All Time?

* Cult-movie film blogger TENEBROUS KATE celebrates the odd sub-genre of Lucha Libre movies from the ‘60s and ‘70s.

* Pop Culture enthusiast BRANDON ROHWER looks at Wrestling’s Greatest tweets (or tWWEets) where the heels maintain their personas over social media.

* Quizmaster NOAH TARNOW (The Big Quiz Thing) tests the crowd's knowledge of iconic wrestlers.

* Host KEVIN MAHER delivers dramatic readings from Leaping Lanny Poffo’s poetry collection.

* Plus a roundtable discussion on Wrestling rumors, myths and legends.

Watch my new web-series: ANDREW 12-SIDED DICE CLAY

My long-awaited web-series has finally launched. You can watch the videos HERE.

Andrew 12-Sided Dice Clay is the nerd, dirty bad-boy of the comic book shop.  His routines are obscene, obscure and often observational. 

But don't take my word for it -- JUST WATCH!



Thanks everybody who came out to see Brian Solomon and me hosting "THE PRICE IS RIGHT" Vincent Price double-feature. 

If you missed it, here's an episode of Brian's podcast where we talk about KILLER MACHINES, talking about everything from MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE to ELLO GOV'NOR

You can hear it all HERE


Here's one of my all-time favorite clips, the evil truck climax from NIGHTMARES

This is a DUEL rip-off, but the breaching truck is pure JAWS. Curiously, director Joseph Sargent would go on to make JAWS: THE REVENGE

And here's the trailer for MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE:
