Trolls are gonna get pwned!

Ridiculously epic and epically ridiculous, Fake Nerd Girl is the story of one girl’s rise to superhero stardom in the face of unrelenting internet trolls. Cheer as she lays waste to alien invaders, applaud as she outwits the undead dragon, and rejoice as she battles the ultimate internet overlord. Fake Nerd Girl is feminist geekery at its finest: hilarious, awkward and totally kick ass.

Created and performed by award-winning comedienne, Chloe Payne, Fake Nerd Girl has toured to festivals across Ontario including the LabCab Festival, the Springworks Festival, the Storefront Festival and the Toronto Festival of Clowns.

 

“It’s so approachable and well thought out that even angry nerd boys would be hard-pressed to find anything bad to say about it…Payne’s acting and comedic timing is so good, the audience was alternating between laughing and crying from minute to minute.”
– The Queen’s Journal

“Chloe’s physical comedy, heartwarming representation of young nerd girls and pop culture references keeps everyone laughing for the entire show…. But what makes the performance fantastic, is that Chloe is doing a balancing act; keep it funny but also political.”
-Rogues Portal
