A type of comedy where they make many random and vague references to many other shows/books/movie/etc. So that when a passing reference by one character is recognized by you, it makes you feel cool knowing you are one of a very few people who caught that very obscure reference. The reason its called nerd comdy is becuase only smart (or nerdy people) will be able to catch enough references to find the show funny, while a stupid person would wonder why this is funny becuase he/she does not recognize any of the referneces.
