Boy, have you been outside recently? It sure is heating up! But boy, we have just the shows to cool you off here at NerdMelt! (Metaphorically; we make no claim to be able to lower your internal temperature. Try a snow cone!)

It’s the Walking The Room 100th episode show, so they’ve invited back some of our favorite guests. Greg Behrendt and Dave Anthony welcome Patton Oswalt, Brian Posehn, Karen Kilgariff and Paul Gilmartin.
An art show inspired by the brilliant work of the groundbreaking sketch comedy troupe The Kids In the Hall that takes you to a world of undersexed chicken-ladies, misogynist cabbage heads, and merciless head-crushers captured by artists in paint, pen and ink.
