Stephen Colbert. J.J. Abrams. An evening of discussion and laughs. This night is chock-full of what nerd dreams are made of. And you can experience it in all its glory. Attend this celebrity nerd-off/gala as Stephen and J.J.’s personal guest. That means meeting them backstage in their green room, attending a VIP reception, joining them onstage to ask a question during their nerd-off, and perhaps even being their tie-breaker in one of the great debates of nerd-dom (eg. Gandalf or Dumbledore?). You’ll get to bring a friend along, so you’ll have someone to geek out with, and you're getting two tickets to a live taping of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert at the historic Ed Sullivan Theater. Best weekend ever? We think so.
