"Download This, Y'All"

Comedian Chris Hardwick and musician Mike Phirman started pun-loving duo Hard 'N Phirm--think Tenacious D without the classic-rock angst--back in 1994 at UCLA. Now their geeky dorm-room humor has become a hot online commodity... - Entertainment Weekly


Radiohead have been given another internet makeover. "Rodeohead" sees 17 of the band's most-loved tracks completely reworked and turned into a medley of bluegrass foot-tappers that wouldn't sound out of place at the most riotous hoedown in the Deep South..."Rodeohead was released on the internet on Wednesday, May 26 (2004) and by the following Sunday, it had been downloaded over 40,000 times. According to daypop.com's blog tracker, it was the second most downloaded link over the weekend (May 29-30). - NME

HARD ‘N PHIRM is one of America’s hottest musical comedy duos.

Individually, Chris HARDwick aNd Mike PHIRMan are successful performers with collective television and film credits that include Comedy Central’s "Premium Blend," "Jimmy Kimmel Live," "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines," Rob Zombie’s "House of 1000 Corpses," "CSI," VH1, TBS, and MTV’s "Singled Out."

Together, HARD ‘N PHIRM regularly perform to sold-out crowds at such top venues as the Improv, the Punch Line, the Montreal Comedy Festival, Coachella and South-by-Southwest music festivals, and Seattle’s highly-celebrated Bumbershoot Festival, sharing the stage with stars like Tenacious D, Sarah Silverman, and Flight of the Conchords. Their first half-hour comedy special, “Comedy Central Presents: Hard ‘N Phirm” was a huge hit.

HARD ‘N PHIRM also boast an army of online followers who have downloaded their digital goods millions of times—like the video for their song “Pi”, which has been featured on every front page, from youtube to myspace. Most recently, SuperDeluxe.com has begun running their new series, “C.P.B.S.”—a show that asks, ‘What if Country Music Channel had its own PBS?’ It’s no wonder that Entertainment Weekly stated, “Their geeky dorm-room humor has become a hot online commodity!”

The guys continue to play America’s colleges thanks to their knock-out roles as emcees for the Final Showcase at NACA’s 2006 National Convention in Boston.

HARD ‘N PHIRM’s live show is a non-stop multimedia explosion of stand-up comedy, music and video. Their onstage presence and dynamic energy make them a hit in any venue.

They currently reside in Los Angeles and are nice.
