“Those who like their comedy on the nerdy side will find just that in the blend of tech and jokes that this show and podcast provides.”-The New York Times
“While shifts in technology now affect all of us, they’re usually discussed in the ivory tower or at industry conferences. Like any subject involving niche expertise, future speculation and no clear-cut answers, it’s hard to make entertaining. A show like Funny As Tech presents an alternative: an expert who quotes studies from PricewaterhouseCoopers with a comedian who can make it digestible on the fly.” -Engadget (Chris Ip)
