* Donald Faison's (of ''Film/{{Clueless}}'' and ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'' fame) admitted to seeing ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'' over 300 times, and has apparently been working on his Dr. Evazan impression. He was mentioned in the VH1 special "undateable" by one of his girlfriends as to partake in long, multihour ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' sessions

* TomLehrer was the musical geek of the 1950s, having written songs to show off his knowledge of the chemical elements, math, and physics. He even put on a [[http://www.haverford.edu/physics/songs/lehrer/physrev.htm stage show]] with several colleagues at Harvard, entitled ''The Physical Revue'', which consisted of his own parodies and original songs about science.

* A number of bands take this route. See the page quotes.



* The growing popularity of the video game industry has helped push this trope, since the gamer geek sub-culture has become an object of nostalgic reverance.

** This was, of course, taken word-for-word from an exchange with Nick Fury during [[UltimateMarvel the Ultimate Galactus]] storyline. (But it was much more badass because, among other things, he was saying it to ''[[Creator/SamuelLJackson Nick Fury]]'').

* In the WhateleyUniverse, at SuperheroSchool Whateley Academy, all the gadgeteers and devisers are this, but Generator (Jade Sinclair) fits this too. She sings anime theme songs in public. In Japanese. She invents shoulder angels. ''Working'' shoulder angels, which start a fad across campus. She is one of the founding members of Team Wondercute. She says she is building a working model of [[MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha Raising Heart]].

* Abed from ''Series/{{Community}}'', who views the world through the lens of tropes and is proud of it. Much of ex-quarter back Troy's arch is coming to realize his own geekiness, and eventually show pride in it, too.

* The entire staff of ''PvP'' except probably Jade. Francis cosplayed as Chun Li to a convention without any insecurity whatsoever. Brent will fight you, but not before saying "It's Amok Time!", etc.

* The cast of ''FullFrontalNerdity'' fits this trope pretty well, as you may expect from the title. Though how much they have to be proud about is debatable; they do fit a fair number of negative nerd/geek stereotypes, and each seems at least somewhat aware of the others' faults in this respect.
