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

by on February 17, 2012

It’s another sparkling week here at NerdMelt Theater, so let’s tell you all about it, starting with TONIGHT!

 

Tonight at 8pm, it’s Sex Nerd Sandra LIVE!

Sex Nerd Sandra is proud to present the live recording of “Talking Dirty: The Aural Sex Show”.

Silence may be golden, but saying “You dirty little _____” at just the right moment is priceless. With tips on picking your words, finding your voice and building confidence, we’ll fill in the blanks for getting that scintillating speech off the tip of your tongue. Join in for a giggle as Sandra, Dave and special guests talk dirty & nerdy. With special guest Marc Maron!

$8 in advance, $10 at the door!

 

Then on Saturday at 8pm, it’s Telethon!

Feeling nostalgic for the ’80s? Join us for TELETHON! – a comedy variety show set in the 1980s featuring live sketch, video commercials, stand-up and musical acts. With special guest comedians JAY LARSON, ELI OLSBERG AND BRANDIE POSEY!

This month’s charity: ”Save Harperton’s Crisis Center!”

$8 in advance, $10 at the door!

 

Sunday at 7pm, it’s Matt Mira’s Day Off!

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.

 FREE!
Monday at 8pm, it’s The Benson Interruption!
Join Doug Benson (Doug Loves Movies, Last Comic Standing) and some special surprise guests who don’t mind being interrupted while trying to tell their jokes. Fun + awkward = fawkward!

 $10!
Tuesday at 8pm, it’s Set List, in its maiden voyage at NerdMelt!
From the minds of Paul Provenza and Troy Conrad… SET LIST is back from sold-out shows at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Montreal’s Just For Laughs Festival, and a regular run in London. Top comics are given a never-before-seen “set list”of strange and outrageous topics the second they walk onstage, and perform seamlessly as if its the act they normally do, while the audience follows their list on the projection screen. Complete comedy in the moment.

Featuring Chris Hardwick, Rick Overton, Greg Proops, Matt Kirshen, Jonah Ray and more!
$8 in advance, $10 at the door!
Wednesday at 8:30, it’s The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail!

Our weekly popular standup show, hosted by Jonah Ray and Kumail Nanjiani, hosts the best standups in the country as well as the amazing acts you haven’t heard of quite yet but should! Plus there’s original art each week, surprise drop-ins, and sometimes a puppy!

 $8!
Thursday at 8pm, it’s RISK! Storytelling Show!

RISK! is the show where people tell true stories they never thought they’d dare to share in public– stories they’d normally only tell to close friends. At the RISK! Live shows, the brightest stars of TV, film and literature drop their usual act and show a side of themselves you’ve never seen before. RISK! Live in LA is hosted by comedians Kumail Nanjiani and Pete Holmes.

This month: Helen Hong, Margot Leitman, Luke Cunningham, and more!

$10

 

Thursday at 9:30, it’s the Montreal Showcase Show!

Montreal’s annual Just for Laughs Comedy Festival is scouting talent in LA. Come see some of what our fair city has to offer for a special low price! (Lineup to be announced closer to the show!)
 $5!
That’s all for this week! We’ll see you next week!
