Welcome to the Chicago Nerd Comedy Festival 2021, where everyone is welcome, and everyone is a nerd!

CNCF celebrates all that is the nerd comedy scene: stand-up, sketch, improv, burlesque, podcasts, and so much more! Once again, we’re coming to you virtually and safely in your own home. Join us for one glorious weekend, May 13th - 15th, and see nerdy comedy acts from all over the country.

Please sign up for your Sched profile, and build your own schedule of shows you want to see. Once you register, the streaming links of your selected shows will be emailed to you the day of those shows. No tickets or admission fees are required.

Please contact us with any questions, concerns, or puns at chicagonerdfest@gmail.com. We’d love to hear from you!

Dolores Peters has been half of the Resnackulous podcasting team since
2016. Born and raised in Chicago, IL (the epicenter of big flavor) she has
been exposed to a plethora of culinary delights across the entire
Chicagoland area and the world. Her six years of experience in the food
and beverage flavoring industry, long-time culinary curiosity and her
mistrust of MOST skinny chefs (AKA common sense) provides support for
her stunt snack critiques. Her passion for belly dance pushes her to keep
questioning, “What makes the belly legitimately happy?” SNACKS of
