TV Geek Paul Goebel Wants To Revive Beat the Geeks With Your Help

The Comedy Central game show’s spiritual revival is looking for funding on Kickstarter.

If you don’t remember Beat the Geeks, you’re missing out on some prime game show goodness. Imagine The Chase but with three Chasers with obsessive proficiency in music, movies and television. It ran for two seasons on Comedy Central and was pretty awesome. Now, TV Geek Paul Goebel wants to tape a pilot for a new show in the same vein as Beat the Geeks, but he needs your help.

With shows like King of the Nerds and The Big Bang Theory glorifying geek culture while still stereotyping and compartmentalizing it, the promise of having a geeky game show without the condescending nature that mainstream “geek” media has is more than enough for a $10 donation. With 6 days left and around $13,000 to go, let’s see if we as game show nerds can’t help a TV geek make his game show pilot.

Learn more and donate at Kickstarter.

    I was just thinking about how Beat the Geeks could use a revival. This sounds like a good idea.

    As long as we don’t have to put up with Blaine Capatch again, this should work.

    You mean like that game show, Eggheads that’s been on TV for the past five years???

  • Paul Goebel

    No, more like Beat the Geeks which premiered 14 years ago.

  • LarryBundyJr

    Never seen it, but it sounds like Eggheads to me.

    If only I had placed a video at the top of the article.

    My thinking is Capatch would’ve been better hosting The Weakest Link and George Gray doing BTG
