I've known Chris Hardwick for over a decade, which is just short of "since forever." He was in a fraternity with my friend Cal, and Cal introduced him to our group of friends when I was sixteen or seventeen. Chris and I immediately hit it off, mostly because we have the exact same ultra-twisted sense of humor, and we've been friends ever since.
Over the years, Chris has grown into one of the most talented people I know (which, surprisingly, is saying a lot. It turns out that I know a lot of talented people.) He's a brilliant comedy writer, and an incredibly talented stand-up performer.
But the reason I'm writing about him today is to share with the world his latest project, which made me gasp with astonishment and convulse with laughter: Rodeohead.
Yeah. Because his rock opera based on the movie Tron wasn't enough, Chris made a bluegrass tribute to Radiohead.
Hey Chris, stop being so funny. It's fucking up the comedy curve for the rest of the class, ya bastard.
PS Chris says, "would you mind terribly mentioning that this was done with mike phirman? this is definitely a hard 'n phirm thing that i can't remotely take all of the credit for. this has lived on phirman's computer for the last year and i want him to know that he's appreciated.
thank you a gajillion times,

Am I actually first?
Never thought it would happen...
My god. That's freakin' brilliant.
That is hillarious ;) Thanks for sharing. MySTiE
Wil, you still owe us an explanation for this...
That was pretty cool and entertaining. I like when they play the comb. Hee Haw!
He's got a great picture of you there: http://www.chrishardwick.com/wil.html
Ahhh friends, can't live with em, can't sell em for parts. heh!
hmmm. highly unorthodox. *wonders if Wil will approve*
Chris Hardwick is hilarious! I remember him from Singled Out and Shipmates (which pissed me off when it got cancelled; that was my favorite show!)
Good luck to him... He rocks!
Teehee. Officer O'titty.
Chris Hardwick is yummy.
Don't you just love the back to the future movies?!
ah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!!!!!!! freakin' priceless mang! thanks for sharing, i'd never heard of him before. i bit, added to your 15 thou. here's to your new kia!
mandy, that site just made my day... :)
Great site....of course I can't seem to get it to work for me name/password wise...Lets all work overtime to get Wil that car....I now have a purpose in my otherwise dark,hopeless existence....I am greatful
omg that is the best thing I have heard for ages!! tell Chris hes a god :P
That Hardwick front picture was friggin awesome. I LOVED THE GREATEST AMERICAN HERO!!!!! I still have the outfit my mother made for me for Halloween when I was 4. Does anyone know where I could get copies of that series??? Dude, thank you for making my day!!!! Excellent.
I visited the site and that was tooooooo funny! OK by this time next week you should be the proud owner of a Kia! Woo hoo! How do I get in on this deal? LOL!
I saw Chris perform once in Westwood, he had me rolling on the floor he was so funny, seriously..best guy
Wow. Amazing. It takes a lot of talent to translate a song across genres and these guys have it.
No offense Will, but it ain't Hayseed Dixie -- who do great bluegrass covers of Snoop's Gin & Juice, AC/DC. etc.
The thing is Rodeohead comes off as comedy (the whip SFX, etc).
But turning great songs (like radiohead's) into a different genre and still making them work -- well, that's art.
just testing this comment page
Enjoyed so much your article about Kris. She seems to have such a positive attitude about life.
Nice picture of you and her; I love your turquoise bracelet.
P.S. for Wil: I just heard on the news that Brian Bonsall (Alexander son of Worf son of Moag) was arrested for drunken driving. Too many Guinnesses.
"Naaa na na...na na na naaaa...na na na naaa...
hey Jude..." I see your autographed copy of Dancing Barefoot is up to $127--congratulations!!
I don't think I've ever seen a picture of your Mom. I've seen pictures of your Dad and Aunt Val in your photo gallery. Would you please post a picture of your Mom.
P.S. I don't eat chicken either.
You have lost a wonderful neighbor and fellow actor, Ronald Reagan. May he rest in peace. May 'los angeles' escort him to the shining city.
