From Revenge to Kings..These two still put the Cool in Nerd ..Let’s hear it for ROBERT CARRADINE & CURTIS ARMSTRONG!
In 1984, the feature comedy "Revenge of the Nerds" focused on bullied geeks on a college campus who fight back by creating their own nerd-centric fraternity, eventually rallying anyone who's "ever felt stepped on, left out, picked on, put down" to their cause. Robert Carradine played Lewis Skolnick the lead nerd and Detroit native Curtis Armstrong played Dudley "Booger" Dawson.
Now Robert Carradine and Curtis Armstrong have joined forces to produce and judge King of the Nerds a competition among people from across the nerd spectrum in search of a crown and a $100,000 prize. Make sure to check it out on TBS Thursdays AT 10/9C. http://www.tbs.com/shows/king-of-the-nerds/
