A genius that can make you laugh, it just couldn’t get better than that. TV nerds are a growing tribe that has added to the TRP of the sitcom they are part of, as well as accumulating a huge fan following of their own.
There was a time when the geeky business of being a nerd never appealed to anyone, but all that changed when these characters graced the TV screens. These funny nerds add a charm to the show in their own goofy, awkward and hilarious way. Here is a look at some of the most comic geeks on TV.
#1. Sheldon Copper
Sheldon Copper beyond doubt takes the top most position in our list. The Big Bang Theory is a show about a bunch of overachievers and their daily struggles of being part of the regular crowd.
#2. Steve Urkel
He embodies the quintessential nerd with his overlarge glasses, high-water pants and suspenders, his high pitched voice only makes me all the goofier. He added humor to the show by his clumsiness and his socially inept behavior.
She is the most intelligent member of the Simpson family and a great over-achiever. Her intellect is often ridiculed by her father who is the opposite of her. She is always snubbed by her brother who is unable to relate to her liberal political stance or her overall intelligence.
Liz is the main character of hit T.V series 30 Rock, and Tina Fey has made this character the soul of the series. Her character has a huge fandom of its own, and most of her lines are told and re-told.
Giving competition to Lisa as the funniest nerd on The Simpson is Milhouse Van Houten. Milkhouse is Bart’s best friend who is the complete opposite of his sister Lisa. He also has a huge crush on Lisa and always daydreams of being with her.
No list of comic and loved TV nerds is complete without Chandler Bing, the man who added a truckload of humor in the famous FRIENDS series. Chandler was the awkward friend who didn’t have much luck with the ladies but could add fun to anything he said without trying.
This nerd from Star Trek has become a cultural figure and not only is he our favorite but the favorite of geeks all over the world. Portrayed By Leonard Nimoy, Spock was bullied for his human ancestry. He is unintentionally funny for his lack of understanding of figurative speech which often results in hilarious confusion.
