Wednesday Morning Man: Chris Hardwick!
Stand-up comedian and television host Chris Hardwick decided to go to work the day after his dad died unexpectedly last week.
He hosted an episode of the live AMC show Talking Dead without mentioning his loss until the very end. He handled it all so gracefully and told viewers that the day before his dad’s death, he was able to tell him how much he loved him.
I’ve posted the video below.
I was not familiar with Chris until I saw the video which someone had shared on Facebook.
He has hosted the shows Singled Out, Wired Science, Web Soup, and The Nerdist Podcast.
In 2011 he began hosting Ministry of Laughs, a BBC America Britcom block, and Talking Dead, a live hour talk show on AMC. In August 2013, he began hosting Talking Bad, a live half-hour talk show on AMC.
Hardwick currently hosts @midnight, a nightly comedy series on Comedy Central.
