This Week at NerdMelt Showroom: Set List, SketchMelt, California Calling, and more!
by Christian Spicer on September 27, 2013
Is that fall in the air? Is fall here? Pumpkin this and pumpkin that is back at all the stores and while seasons may change, some things remain the same…like another week of amazing shows at the NerdMelt Showroom at Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles! Shows like Set List, SketchMelt, the debut of California Calling, and more!
September 28th at 8pm it’s Set List: Standup Without a Net!
From the minds of Paul Provenza and Troy Conrad…Set List is back from sold-out shows at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Montreal Just For Laughs Festival, and a regular run in London. Top comics are given a never-before-seen “setlist”of strange and outrageous topics the second they walk onstage, and perform seamlessly as if it’s the act they normally do, while the audience follows their list on the projection screen. Complete comedy in the moment.
Featuring the never-before-seen set lists of: Andy Peters, Jon Daly, Rye Silverman, Wayne Federman, Matt Champagne, Howard Kremer, Emily Heller, Eric Andre, and Sam Simmons.
$8 in advance, $10 at the door.
September 29th at 8pm it’s Harmontown!
What is Harmontown? It’s awesome. It’s unique. It’s one of a kind. It’s something only Dan Harmon (creator of Community and the upcoming Rick and Morty) and Jeff B. Davis (Whose Line is it Anyway) can do. It’s a different show every time and it’s every week. Lucky us! Playing Dungeons and Dragons? It’s happened. Dan Harmon freestyle rapping? Yup, that too. Calling Chevy Chase from stage? Happened…more than once. A celebrity guest? Allison Brie, Donald Glover, and Gillian Jacobs among others have all stopped in. Getting super personal with an intimate audience? Always. It’s Harmontown. It’s awesome. It’s unique. Don’t miss a single week.
September 30th at 7pm it’s Nerdist Open Mic!
Come watch Kyle Clark and John Ungaro host this comedy free-for-all. You’ll see brand new comics, comics you know and love trying out new material, and the magic that is live comedy.
October 2nd at 8:30pm it’s The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail!
Jonah Ray and Kumail Nanjiani helm the good ship Meltdown every single Wednesday, to host the show that’s been named one of the best live shows in LA by LA Weekly, Splitsider, and more. At The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail, you’ll see some of the biggest comics, up and coming acts just before they get famous, and as always, surprise drop-ins that will knock your socks off.
