Celebrity Nerd Showdown

It’s revenge of the nerds night on Bravo.
How else to describe the lineup on Celebrity Poker Showdown of Willie Garson, David Cross, Richard Schiff, and Paul Rudd. (One of these things is not like others, it’s true: but despite Rudd’s good looks, his status as every indie girl’s heartthrob—he was soooooo adorable in Wet Hot American Summer!!!—makes him a nerd by proxy. They’re also playing with Nicole Sullivan late of Mad TV who’s also something of a nerd.)
Maybe the producers of Celebrity Poker Showdown were inspired by Ben Mezrich’s geeks versus card sharks bestseller, Bringing Down the House: The Inside Story of Six M.I.T. Students Who Took Vegas for Millions. Or maybe they’ve run out of good-looking stars who know the rules of the game. One thing’s for sure: a lot of makeup was required to get the shine off three-fifths of the players’ pates tonight.
Tune in at 9PM EST to see which nerd triumphs and which cry all the way to the Tri-Lam house.
