This Week at NerdMelt Theater!
By Emily Gordon on January 27, 2012
We’ve got so much comedy it’s coming out of our orifices! Check it out!
Today at 8:30pm, it’s Jonah Ray’s album recording!
Join Jonah Ray (Nerdist Podcast, The Soup, The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail) as he records his second stand up comedy record “Hello Mr. Magic Plane Person, Hello” for AST Records. Ed Salazar and Jim Hamilton will be opening for Jonah! He will provide the comedy, booze, and seats. All you have to do is laugh. Sounds like a good deal to us!
You’re entering a stand-up comedy show on the edge of time and space; in a place where light and shadow are often mistaken for a biracial gay couple; where the lineup of comics are from all walks of life… *and* death. There is no two drink minimum here, there is only the maximum occupancy of the Imagination! You are entering… *ENTER SPIDER*.
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 are frequent drop ins), and the magic that is live comedy.
Tuesday at 8pm, it’s Jackie Kashian’s Dork Forest!
Live Dork on Dork Dialog with fantastic indie comic book dork, Andy Kindler! I will learn about R. Crumb and why comics that are “real” are also not “depressing.” Let’s watch Kindler do this! I will be doing my mantra… safe space! safe space!
Eddie Pepitone will close things out with an amazingly funny set!
It’s LIVE, It’s going to be great, and you should all come.
Wednesday at 8:30pm, it’s The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail
This weekly standup show is hosted by Jonah Ray and Kumail Nanjiani, and it’ll knock your socks off! This week, they welcome Rob Delaney, John Roy, Reese Waters, Howard Kremer, Neal Brennan, and Tom Wilson!
And on Thursday at 8pm, it’s The Image Comics Alpha Girl Show!
Image Comics is celebrating the release of Alpha Girl #1, their comic set in the 80s about a cosmetics company whose products turn women into lady zombies, so it’s time to laugh! Celebrate with cocktail mistresses Alie & Georgia, Sean Patton, sketch group Diani and Devine, DJ Douggpound, Steve Agee, and Margaret Cho! Come for the comedy, stay for the signing and meet and greet with the co-creators, artists, and other people involved in the making of Alpha Girl!
$8 in advance, $10 at the door!
