If you consume any form of electronic media, you will definitely know the face of Chris Hardwick. With @midnight, Talking Dead, stand-up, and his online Nerdist empire, he’s a pretty hard working dude. Not being a slave to the grind, though, Hardwick likes to have a little fun every now and then.
In an interview with Conan O’Brien, Hardwick explains that after yapping about zombies with celebrities on Talking Dead, he takes some guests to play on The Price Is Right set. The classic game show (which may not be ADA compliant) has its studio one floor below at the mammoth CBS Television City in Los Angeles, CA. Here are some of the celebs Hardwick has taken for his unofficial tour:
The Walking Dead Creator Robert Kirkman:
Joe Manganiello from Magic Mike and True Blood:
Yvette Nicole Brown from Community and ex-WWE star CM Punk:
And some The Walking Dead folks as well:
Sadly, the fun had to come to an end. The corporate stiffs at CBS told Hardwick to cut out the shenanigans and stop playing on the game show’s set. This little wrist slap should be no big deal for Hardwick, though. At his current pace he’ll eventually be hosting The Price Is Right, as well as every other friggin’ show on TV.
