duo specializing in both nerd humor & good old
fashioned fun. Combining musical

Picard Maneuver: They’re two nerds you can’t help but love.

Named after an obscure reference from one episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation, Adam Fanshier and Mike Hover have a unexpected, and truly unique blend of musical comedy, vaudeville, improv, physical comedy and audience interaction that delights audiences without fail.

Adam and Mike’s unique brand of humor comes from their very honest presentation of their personal lives. They are two nerds trying to make it in a world full of “cool kids”. Their message is universal; Life is all about being comfortable in your own skin.

You don’t have to be a nerd, or ever watched an episode of Star Trek to enjoy Picard Maneuver. Their act is more than a collection of ‘Fanboy’ inside jokes- It is an honest tale of the ‘every man’. Adam and Mike have a talent for making audiences realize that being an “outsider” is more than OK— it should be embraced! It’s something that Mike proves as he flirts with his unforgettable, and hilarious, “Wookie Dance”.

Picard Maneuver has been delighting audiences all over, performing at The Ice House Comedy Club, Flappers Comedy Club, The Improv, Tommy Rocker's Cantina in Las Vegas, and seen on The Wanda Sykes Show and CBS Comedy Cage Match.

Whether you were beating up nerds in high school, the ones thrown into the trashcan, or watched it from afar, Picard Maneuver is the comedy group for you.
