Description

Every week on Nerd Rage: The Great Debates, your moderator, Marc Abrigo, challenges the funniest stand-up comics, podcasters, and even pro-wrestlers to take sides and square off to settle some of geekdom’s hottest (and often times, weirdest) debates: how many muscle cars does Vin Diesel need to beat Captain America? Is Steven Universe a better frontman than Super Mario? And just what the hell will a lightsaber accomplish in the world of the Matrix? All will be settled -- are you ready to rage?

LARP vs D&D

LARP vs D&D

2020-01-1300:41:24

For all our gamer nerds out there, there's one debate that can go from lawful to chaotic real quick, and that's the fight between LARP'ing (live-action role-playing for you uncultured swine) and good ol' dice-rolling, table-crowding Dungeons & Dragons. Will the LARP'ers find an argument that suits their agenda best, or will the D&D'ers find a way to crawl out with a victory? Whether it's your clothes that make you, or that's just how you roll, always be ready to RAGE! Produced by Komedio Comedy Find more episodes of Nerd Rage!
