Bob Otto is America’s second favorite cruciverbalist (someone skillful in creating or solving crossword puzzles) and the host of his very own syndicated television game show, Word Nerd. But when the show’s producers devise a questionable plan to boost the show’s falling ratings, Bob is faced with a difficult choice. Should he maintain his personal and professional integrity, or do whatever it takes to save the show from its imminent cancellation?
An excerpt of Word Nerd was presented at the 2022 American Crossword Puzzle Tournament, earning the show a mention in The New York Times. If you were not able to reserve a ticket, we highly encourage you to show up early to any performance to get a spot on the waitlist. The waitlist will be first come, first serve, and we anticipate being able to accommodate several audience members for each performance. See you at the show!
