Friends and readers, if you are someone who loves fun I implore you to come to the NerdMelt Showroom in Los Angeles, CA on June 8, 2015. At 9pm, our fearless leader Chris Hardwick will be hosting the third annual Nerdist Stand Up Cluster (buy tickets here!) and it is guaranteed to be an hour and a half of laughs. The show is a live recording of The Nerdist Podcast and will be showcasing some of the best comedians on the scene today. Comedians like who, you ask? Well, let’s take a look at the line up.
A top-ten finalist of Last Comic Standing in 2010, James Adomian has since appeared in various sketches on both Conan and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. James has appeared in films such as Harold and Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay and Miss March, and made serval appearances on both the Comedy Bang! Bang! podcast and the Comedy Bang! Bang! TV show. On Twitter, he’s known as @JAdomian.
Listeners of The Nerdist Podcast will surely recognize the name Kyle Clark. But Kyle does have a life outside of that, though including his own stand-up and his recently released comedy album (on cassette…really, Kyle?) called Pizza Night. Kyle also co-hosts his own podcast called This Is Rad! His Twitter? @kyleclarkisrad.
Known for her quick wit and large collection of vests, Cameron has made the rounds on stand up tours and appearances on late night talk shows, as well as on podcasts like Comedy Bang! Bang! She even created her own web series Ask A Lesbian. Tweet her @cameronespisito.
An LA native comedian, Jackson has toured the country with his stand-up and guest starred on shows like Legit on FX and Upload with Shaquille O’ Neil. He’s appeared and performed on Last Comic Standing, Louis Anderson Presents, and Comedy Central Presents. You can find him here: @aljackson.
Megan has appeared on shows like Flight Of The Conchords, Strangers With Candy, Fringe, and VH1’s Best Week Ever. She has performed at the UCB Theatre numerous times for the past decade and, of course, writes and appears in sketches for UCBComedy.com. Her Twitter presence can be found @MeganNeuringer.
Co-host of the You Had To Be There podcast as well as MTV’s Nikki & Sara Live, Schaefer is no stranger to crowds at NerdMelt. Having worked as a blogger for VH1’s Best Week Ever and Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, Sara also hosted an online show for AOL called The DL. Find her on the Internet @saraschaefer1.
Dave fits the bill for being called “an up-and-comer,” but as previously performed at NerdMelt as part of The Meltdown with Jonah & Kumail. He’s also appeared at The Business LA and on Adam Devine’s House Party on Comedy Central. Tweet him here: @dave_thomason.
A classically trained actor, you may have seen Baron on the original Law & Order as well as on Netflix’s Grace And Frankie as Bud, but Vaughn has also appeared in films like Cloverfield and Black Dynamite. He’s also been seen on many of the late night shows over the past several years in addition to an appearance on Live At Gotham on Comedy Central. He’s on also on Twitter: @barvonblaq.
Not only will you see all of these amazing comedy acts at one event, but you’ll also witness a performance by the winner of Totino’s Favorited Comedian Contest. If even THAT isn’t enough for you, Totino’s will also be sponsoring the show, meaning they will have a food truck parked out front of NerdMelt with sweet, sweet pizza rolls for all. Like always, tickets are $8 in advance and $10 at the door. We hope to see you there!
