Full Frontal Nerdity download


We've made our 2014 show, Full Frontal Nerdity, into a DVD! But you're more of a download kind of person. We get that.

This is our classic first tour show full of binary scarves, cryonic love songs, gravity-defying bead chains, fire tornados, smoke rings and a spectacular flaming Nerd Anthem finale. 

The download comes in three flavours, all now at £π to celebrate our 10th anniversary! 

    1. Everything in HD - All the stuff from the DVD in glorious HD: main show 1080p, extras 720p.

    2. Everything in SD - All of the above in bandwidth-friendly Standard Definition 480p. Your hard disk will barely know it's there.

    3. Just the show - In Standard Definition with English subtitles.

    How do I play the download?

    All downloads are .mp4 format, which will most likely play just fine on your default video player, such as VLC, iTunes, MPlayerX, Quicktime or Windows Media Player.

    The files arrive as a single zip. Here's how to open a zip file.

    How do I access the bonus subtitles and audio?

    Some media players are better than others at handling multiple subtitle and audio tracks. For example, iTunes seems to work fine, but in QuickTime the alternative audio tracks cannot be selected. 

    If you have problems accessing the bonus features on your default player, we recommend downloading free video player VLC for Windows or Mac ( It definitely plays the files in our download and all the bonus features.

    With VLC, you can also use the "Add Subtitle File" feature to play the extra subtitle files available on our website
