Genuine Nerd is a 71 minute documentary that captures the life of Tony Radloff, a self-proclaimed genuine nerd. Tony Radloff's story starts out with him becoming mini-celebrity after appearing in the autobiographical graphic novel American Splendor. He then goes on to appear in cult films such as "Killer Nerds", "Bride of the Killer Nerds", "Townies" as well as a movie version of American Splendor. The documentary films Radloff doing normal day-to-day activities as Radloff takes the film makers to White Castle, gives a tour of his house, and shows off his work in other independent films. Genuine Nerd also tries to educate viewers about him through interviews. During interviews, Radloff talks about his life growing up, his experience working on films, and of course, his nerdy lifestyle. Harold Pekar, a comic book artist, and actor Judith Friedlander are also interviewed to discuss what it Radloff is like as a person, and what it's like to work with him.
