Harmontown NerdMelt Showroom

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.

May 16th at 7pm it’s Greg Proops Is The Smartest Man In The World Proopcast!

Greg Proops NerdMelt Showroom

It’s just Greg Proops and you. There’s no fan fare. Proops takes center stage at a small table-and-chair setup with a single microphone. Then he’s off for an hour of great conversation that flies by at a breakneck clip. He crams the feeling of a great two-way conversation into the lecture-style format of a one-way conversation. Part professorial, part crazed comedian, Proops forms the show around his talent and passions. The show flows like a love letter to tangents. The Proopcast has been to Australia, New Zealand, Montreal, London, Edinburgh, Austin, Cleveland, San Francisco, and off the coast of St. Martin in the Caribbean all in one year. Now you must fall.

Be there and experience joy for once in your life.

Prompter NerdMelt Showroom

Troy Conrad’s newest creation!  Comics use a teleprompter to deliver a TED Talk-style presentation.  When the teleprompter unexpectedly freezes, the performer must rely on their ability to improvise and continue their talk on the subject until the prompter comes back on.  How much fun can comics have with a supposedly “broken” teleprompter and an absurd premise?  A lot, it turns out. May 17th, catch Wil AndersonDana GouldLaurie KilmartinMike McShaneBaron VaughnJon Daly, and special guests!

$8 in advance, $10 at the door.
