In her new stand-up comedy special SMELLS LIKE NERD SPIRIT, Erikka Innes shares forty minutes of her life as ‘Commander of the Nerd Legion.’ That’s a big responsibility for a comedian. It’s a world where she creates alternate comic book supervillain seductresses like Harriet Herpes and invents a video/sex controller called the G-Spot 4. She is also on a quest to find out what fake boobs feel like as she adjusts to her new life in Los Angeles after being kicked out of San Francisco for not being a non-conformist. All this, while speaking on the telephone with her overly open-minded mother, combating pirates, preventing a second Trojan war, and figuring out where to camp at Burning Man.
Taped live at Rooster T. Feathers in Sunnvyale, CA (the same establishment where Al Alcorn invented the video game Pong), Erikka Innes: Smells Like Nerd Spirit is now available as a digital album on iTunes, Amazon, and CD Baby. The DVD is exclusively available on Amazon.
