Sup Doc: Couple of Doc Nerds recapping reality
Ep 92 EVIL GENIUS with comedian Chad Opitz
On episode 92 host Paco Romane recaps with the lovely and talented Chad Opitz about Evil Genius: The True Story of America’s Most Diabolical Bank Heist! Evil Genius is a 2018 true crime docuseries about the murder of Brian Wells, a high-profile 2003 incident often referred to as the “collar bomb” or “pizza bomber” case. It was released on Netflix as a four-part series on May 11, 2018.
Evil Genius is one of those docs that keeps you saying “no way” and wanting to binge watch the entire series. Seriously. It’s nuts. If the Apple Dumpling gang were MENSA members with a taste for revenge, money and murder you’d have the makings of Evil Genius.
Chad Opitz is a comic whose hilarious and unique perspective is making him an oft booked staple at Bay Area clubs and showcases. Veering between one-liners, short story jokes, and sometimes even song, Opitz’ writing is as well-regarded as his character and performance work.
