This Week at NerdMelt Theater!
by Emily Gordon on March 2, 2012
Tonight at 8pm, it’s our Double Header Show!
The Saturday Morning Show- Kyle Clark and Dominic Moschitti revisit the beloved cartoons of our childhood. The result isn’t always pretty. Grab a bowl of sugar coated cereal and relive those Saturday morning memories through the cruel lens of adulthood. With guests Dominic Dierkes and more!
The Jesse Miller Talk Show- Watch some great comics, bands & various guests perform, then be interviewed by self described media mogul Jesse Miller (Andre Hyland). Along with some video and musical gems.
Jesse Miller (Andre Hyland) (Fuel TV’s Stupidface & The Daily Habit)
Co-Host-Daryl (Paul Oyen) (HBO’s Funny or Die)
Dancer-Tanya (Anna Lee Lawson) (HBO’s Funny or Die, Stupidface)
Guests: Skateboarding stuntman Chris “Slam” Lambert (Fuel TV), comedian/rapper Howard “Dragonboy Suede” Kremer (Who Charted? podcast), and a short film by director Dugan O’Neal (TV on the Radio, Gym Class Heroes)
$8 in advance, $10 at the door!
Saturday at 8pm, it’s Loud Noises!
You’ll laugh your face bits stretchy at the hilarious stand up comedy of our host, Brandon Vaughn, Eric Dadourian and Karl Hess, followed by music from songbird Sue Scrofa and a performance by Eyes Lips Eyes!
LOUD NOISES! is a fun filled night of good laughs and good music and you should go because you’re a nice person and you deserve nice things.
$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.
Monday at 8:30pm, it’s The BEATdown!
Comedian Eliza Skinner and beatboxer Joshua Silverstein host five of Los Angeles’ finest comics and one audience volunteer in “The BEATdown”. It’s a freestyle rap face-off where the winner is decided by the audience. It’s six rounds of badass one-on-one rap battles. You saw 8 Mile, right? It’s like that, but funnier.
The lineup for March (which is subject to change) is:
Lizzy Cooperman, Rebecca Drysdale, Mike Eagle, Adam Lustick, and TJ Miller
Tickets $8 in advance, $10 at the door
Tuesday at 8pm, it’s Bagged and Boarded!
Bagged & Boarded is a weekly chat show for the discerning stoners/geeks of the world, presented by Smodcast and starring host Matt Cohen and a special celebrity nerd guest. Sometimes funny, sometimes poignant, nearly always naked from the waist down… it’s Bagged & Boarded! Featuring an appearance by Misti Dawn and a special SmodCast Network guest!
Tickets are $8 in advance, $10 at the door!
Wednesday at 8:30, it’s The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail!
Thursday at 8pm, it’s Dork Forest!
This month’s live recording of The Dork Forest has Mary Birdsong (The Descendants, Reno 911). We dive into “Alien Archeology” and possibly biblical archaeology (but not in a “Christian” way, just the historical way — does that even make sense?) It may not NOW… but, oh… it will. This will be a good one. AND… closing out the show with some brilliant stand up is Mr. Eddie Pepitone (Puddin’ fella). You should all come.
Hosted by Jackie Kashian
That’s all for this week, but stay tuned because we’ve always got some kind of amazing going on!
