This Week at Nerdist Theater at Meltdown!
by Emily Gordon on August 5, 2011
Hi everyone! It’s time to talk about what’s going on at 7522 W. Sunset Blvd, aka Nerdist Theater at Meltdown, in the next 7 days! We’ve had a couple of shows postponed – The Nerdist Guild podcast has been moved from August 6th to September 6th and Carnyville has been moved from August 12th to September 29th - but we’re rolling through the next week with four big sexy shows!
This show will blow your mind. L.A.’s top improvisers come to Nerdist Theater to perform two incredible long forms.
Rough Cut brings you the improvised movie. You give us the lyric to a song, we give you the world. And by “world” we mean “improvised movie.” From the opening shot to the closing credits, Rough Cut will astonish you with movie magic. Then Diamond Lion brings you the improvised musical. Yes, it’s improvised. No, they didn’t pick the music before hand. Yes, it’s amazing. More awesome than a lion – it’s a Diamond Lion!
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.
Join Sandra and her sex store coworkers as they spill it on how hilarious life at a sex store can truly be. Fun! Prizes! Knowledge!
“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. Panel followed by audience Q&A.
$8 in advance, $10 day of show!
Jonah Ray and Kumail Nanjiani host this popular weekly standup show, and this week they welcome Matt Braunger, Erik Anker, Jon Dore and Rory Scovel, Adam Cayton-Holland, Monte LaMonte, and Dana Gould!
