This Week at Nerdist Theater at Meltdown
By Emily Gordon on July 21, 2011
It’s Comic-Con week (as if you didn’t already know), so we have a fun slate of shows for those of you in Los Angeles with no way to SDCC, and then we have more mind-blowing entertainment next week.
We start off with what we’re calling our Sexy Nerdy Weekend. Instead of going to SDCC, come to NerdMelt and get sexy!
“Sex Nerd” Sandra Daugherty is the lead sex educator at Pleasure Chest LA and has been teaching sex and intimacy skill workshops for over two years, helping thousands of people improve their sex lives. Now The Nerdist’s own sexpert brings those skills to the back of a comic book store! Come and see the woman who brought you “The Crab Hand of Doom” & “The Clittiest Part of the Man-Clit” live and in person as she geeks out on the finer points of orgasming your life and answers your most intimate questions. This week’s topic: His and Hers Handjobs!
Ever wanted to know what your favorite creative types go geek-tastic over but were too afraid to ask? Join Mo Fathelbab as he asks hard-hitting questions like “How do you play ‘Magic: The Gathering’?” and “Which Doctor is the best?” This month’s show features all stars of the adult industry! Scheduled to appear: Nikki Delano, Nicki Blue, Scarlett Fay, and Amy Brooke!
Matt Mira of the Nerdist Podcast needs a Day Off, so we decided to give him Sundays at Nerdist Theater. Come watch Mira and Paul Cibis host this comedy free-for-all. You’ll see brand new comics, comics you know and love trying out new material (Chris Hardwick and Kumail Nanjiani have both dropped in), and the magic that is live comedy.
This show is very popular and there are limited spots available, so arrive on time!
Here comes another episode of this very popular show in which Dan Harmon, creator of Community, explains why he wants a colony on the moon, and how he’s going to get there. With Comptroller Jeff B Davis helping to keep things on track, this show is a peek inside the mind of Dan Harmon. Not to be missed.
Fresh from the San Diego Comic Con and the premiere of his new documentary Films of Fury: The Kung Fu Movie Movie, the “Ric & Infamous” martial arts movie master is bringing a specially-made, eye-peeling, fight-filled, clip show — and his two new books (Films of Fury: The Kung Fu Movie Book and For One Week Only: The World of Exploitation Films) — for a night of frenzied fun … full of love for the weirdest, wildest, most ridiculously exhilarating movies ever made.
Tonight, since Jonah and Kumail are both out of town, we’re letting Ed Salazar take over, and he’ll host a free showing of a fun summer movie, just so you don’t have to go a week without seeing your Meltdown friends! We’ll be back next week with a badass show!
You’re invited to spend an intimate evening with the legendary Grant Morrison for the release of his new book Supergods: What Masked Viglilantes, Miraculous Mutants, and a Sun God from Smallville Can Teach Us About Being Human. By just buying Supergods from Meltdown Comics, you’ll not only get a copy of this amazing book, but you’ll also get a night filled with Q&A with the man himself, a signing, perhaps some videos, and maybe even a song or two, as the festivities will be hosted by a very special, very chemical, romantic guest Musical Collaborator. Closed to the first 200 responders only, so act fast! If you’re not in Los Angeles, you can get a signed copy of Supergods shipped to your home and support indy stores. If you’re in LA, you get the book, the signature, plus the show!
That’ll do it for this week, but stay tuned next week for more standup, improvised musicals, and possibly a Nerdist podcast…
