Tom Lenk: Nerdgasm

Old school Buffy the Vampire Slayer fans will be excited to hear that Tom Lenk, best known for playing Andrew Wells, the whiny nerd member of the Trio, is coming to the Edinburgh Fringe this year.

Lenk comes to Edinburgh with his aptly named show, Nerdgasm, documenting his time spent as a nerd-of-all-trades in ‘theatre, film and reality’. More interestingly, Lenk has chosen to plan, document and fund his show all through the magical power of the internet.

Starting with a quick go round of his Twitter followers, asking where they’d most like to see him play, Lenk set up Tomlenk.com, a site designed to keep track of his developing ‘lenk-umentary’. You can request cities for him to visit, catch up with his latest work and generally watch/listen to/read about Tom Lenk being silly. The page also acts as a platform for his Kickstarter campaign , where you can help Tom Lenk fund his European trip. For more information, check out the video below, charting his progress so far, and rallying support for the Lenk cause.

Luckily, Lenk has already surpassed his target budget, so we can instead sit back and reap the rewards by going to see his show in August! The show is only on for one night though, so get your tickets quick!
