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.
