KUSA - Friday night's show at Comedy Works is a homecoming for comedian Chris Hardwick, who attended Denver's Regis Jesuit High School - before it was co-ed.

"That's not cool, I totally lost out," he said. "Why didn't my parents have me earlier? It's not fair."

Hardwick, who hosts "The Talking Dead," AMC's companion show the popular zombie series "The Walking Dead," recently inked a deal with Comedy Central to host a talk show after the Colbert Report.

The yet-untitled show will be executive produced by Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant, the writing team responsible for "Reno 911!" and the "Night at the Museum" series.

Hardwick also hosts "Singled Out," an MTV dating show, and heads a podcast about nerd culture.

"I wanted to build a career based around the things I love," the comedian, a self-proclaimed comic book and sci-fi nerd, said.

Tickets are still available for Hardwick's 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. shows on Friday at Comedy Works' Larimer Square location, as well as his 9:45 p.m. show on Saturday.

Hardwick calls his shows, "family friendly ... if the family enjoys swearing" and said he likes to involve the audience as much as possible.

"You can see me twice in a row and not see the same show twice," Hardwick said.
