Wednesday, December 21 @ 8:00pm – 10:00pm
Victory Gardens Biograph Theatre 2433 North Lincoln Avenue 60614 Chicago , IL

Dig that garish holiday sweater out of your closet and celebrate the season – or seek refuge from it – with Tricia Bobeda and Greta Johnsen of Nerdette at Nerdette's Holiday Spectacular! Part of WBEZ’s Podcast Passport: Film mini-series, the evening will include a conversation with Chicago filmmakers Joe and Kris Swanberg, holiday themed cocktails, film nerds on the best and worst holiday movies, scenes from A Klingon Christmas Carol and numbers from Chicago Tap Theatre's Tidings of Tap.

As if that wasn't enough? Audience members who wear holiday sweaters may be invited to strut their stuff onstage at the historic Victory Gardens Biograph Theater – and maybe win a prize.  Holiday Sweater Contest brought to you by Peter Sagal from Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me! Yes, he'll be there too!
