Nerdist was started by Chris Hardwick and has grown to be a many headed beast.

Starting this Saturday, the Nerdist will have officially taken over the back of Meltdown Comics! To celebrate the birth of Nerdist Theater at Meltdown, come on down to one (or all) of the hilarious and amazing shows we have lined up for the first week!

On Saturday, April 2nd, join comedian Jimmy Dore for his popular show Pop and Politics, where he and a celebrity panel make fun of cultural jackasses with stand up, sketch, and video clips! Get your tickets here!

On Sunday, April 3rd, we’ll have our first ever Nerdist Podcast Live from Nerdist Theater at Meltdown, as Chris, Jonah, and Matt welcome moviemaker extraordinaire James Gunn! You’ll hear all the ins and outs of making a superhero movie! Get your tickets here, but if you bring in a ticket stub from Gunn’s movie Super, you get in FREE!


On Monday, April 4th, you get another dose of Nerdist Podcast Live, and this one is an all night affair. Starting at 6:30pm, you can watch the movie Black Dynamite with Chris and the boys, and then at 8pm, a podcast with Michael Jai White, Byron Minns, Scott Sanders, and Brian Ash from the movie! Then after the podcast, there’s more fun with a signing for Black Dynamite: Slave Island, a live performance by Andrian Younge and The Black Dynamite Sound Orchestra, original art on display, and more! Get your tickets here!

Then on Wednesday, April 6th, it’s time for Nerdist Theater at Meltdown’s weekly comedy show, The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail! Jonah Ray and Kumail Nanjiani host this show every Wednesday, and this week they welcome Greg Proops, Eric Andre, James Adomian, Nick Rutherford, and Jim Hamilton! Tickets here!
