(USA) RT 88 Mins

Director: Andrew Putschoegl

Writer: Tom Lenk

Producers: Courtney Andresen, Andrew Putschoegl, Tom Lenk
 
Starring: Tom Lenk

Actor/comedian Tom Lenk has been a nerd all his life; on stage, on screen, and in reality. Known for his comedic roles in "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "Cabin in the Woods," "Transformers," and "Much Ado About Nothing," Tom attempts to fulfill a lifelong "drama geek" dream to perform his live solo comedy show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland, the largest and most famous theater festival in the world.

Part "dorkumentary," part concert film, NERDGASM takes us behind the scenes of Tom's unusual, exciting and sometimes lazy approach to creating a non-traditional "one man show" - from practice shows in L.A.'s low-rent Theater Row to grandiose and historic British venues. Throughout the trip Tom tries to satisfy his own personal Scotland-centric geeky cravings for Harry Potter, underground cities, Loch Ness Mythology and delicious sausage rolls. Tom's fun-loving and neurotic persona is put to the test on stage, in the Scottish Highland wilderness and in the "Buffy" themed memorabilia room at the home of his biggest local Edinburgh fan.
