Shout at the movies! We screen the worst films you’ve never seen, and invite YOU to roast them. The best one-liners of the night will win prizes. If you like MST3K and Rifftrax, this is your scene! Your hosts for the evening, John Mathot (Disney’s Phineas & Ferb) and Susan Wright (The Because Show podcast), along with special guest stand-up comedians, will feature 1987’s Deadly Prey! Imagine if First Blood was based on a coloring book instead of a novel. It’s screamingly funny. And we will host the movie’s stars Ted Prior and Dave Campbell for a Q&A after the movie. Plus, there’s FREE POPCORN!!! Come on down to the show — that’s an order!

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.

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.
