Stern Producer Gary Dell’Abate Latest To Join Nerdist Empire
Longtime Howard Stern Show producer/personality Gary Dell’Abate (a.k.a Baba Booey) will be joining the likes of Neil Patrick Harris, “Weird Al” Yankovic, and Rob Zombie on the ever popular Nerdist Channel on YouTube.
Dell’Abate’s new show, They Call Me Baba Booey will feature Gary’s Rain Man-esque mental encyclopedia of music and pop culture trivia and current happenings interjected with frequent geek outs of the audio/video tech gadget variety.
“In Gary’s other job, he is ridiculed for being an audiophile and a tech head,” states Nerdist founder Chris Hardwick, “BUT NOT HERE AT NERDIST! We welcome him to our nerdly fold to work amongst his own kind, like Professor X welcoming a young mutant to the Xavier Institute.”
And much like Professor Xavier with his dream for peaceful human-mutant coexistence, Hardwick just keeps building his empire. Since founding the company in 2008, he’s amassed a huge following both on the web and direct telepathic link, sharing The Nerdist Channel’s wealth of comedy, entertainment and pop culture content via podcasts, YouTube, and its 1.6 million Twitter followers.
“I am very happy to be a part of the Nerdist family and channeling my inner geek with everyone there,” states Gary Dell’Abate, “and I am even more excited to join Chris Hardwick and Team Nerdist’s bowling team!”
