This Week at NerdMelt Showroom: Harmontown, Star Dreck, Meltdown Show with Jonah and Kumail!
by Christian Spicer on November 22, 2013
It was the week of Thanksgiving and all through the house, people were eating, getting their stomachs ready and big as a house. Oh yeah, also, we have some really great shows in the days leading up to Thanksgiving. Check it them out. Have family in town? Why not bring them to some shows? Everyone likes to laugh!
November 24th 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.
November 25th 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.
November 26th at 8pm it’s Star Dreck!
This will be the grand finale Star Dreck. Come celebrate the final live show of Star Dreck with special guest Wil Wheaton, prizes, the whole shebang. Live long and prosper, friends. Kumail Nanjiani and Matt Mira are huge Trekkies, but even they have to admit that some of them just don’t hold up. Join them as they introduce you to some of the worst Star Trek episodes in existence, and then proceed to rip them to shreds. With the help of a special guest will they boldly go where no fan has gone before?
$6 in advance, $8 at the door.
November 27th 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.
It’s the day before Thanksgiving, which means it’s time for The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail to give back to you! (And let you give back to others). The show is FREE, and we will happily accept donations for Union Station Homeless Services in lieu of your money, and be aware, the things Union Station loves most are cash and coffee! Both totally easy to bring!
We’ll also have Thankgiving treats on hand for the crowd, plus amazing comedy from Baron Vaughn, Kyle Clark, Jon Daly, Matt Kirshen, Howard Kremer, Anthony Jeselnik, and a Thanksgiving surprise.
