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

What’s Happening at Nerdist Theater at Meltdown This Week?

by on May 27, 2011

We’ve had a monstrous May. In our second month of operation here at Nerdist Theater at Meltdown, we hung out with Kevin Pereira, Rove McManus, and Robert Kirkman at the Nerdist Podcast, saw improvised movies and musicals with Rough Cut and Diamond Lion, had a funeral for Rory Scovel at The JoRy Hour, and welcomed Community’s Dan Harmon as he let us in on plans to colonize the moon and call it Harmontown. Whew.

Now let’s talk this week.

We’re taking tonight off, but on Saturday, May 28th at 8pm, we’re happy to have Knuckles and Tits.

Stephen “Knuckles” Brophy and Ebbie “Tits” Parker perform sketches the way they weren’t be to be performed—with performances! Knuckles & Tits sketches focus on the perils of modern humans in existential crises, which is, let’s face it, hilarious. It’s a classic battle of the sexes with actual gun play, the ghost of Don La Fontaine, and possibly at least one semi-noticeable boner.
