This Week at NerdMelt Showroom: Star Dreck, Double Jump, Picture This, and more!

NerdMelt Showroom

The NerdMelt Showroom at Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles has an absolutely killer week planned for this last week of May. It’s hard to think of a better way to say goodbye to May and hello to June than with some amazing comedy. Shows like Star Dreck with guest Moshe Kasher, the special live taping of Double Jump for the Nerdist Channel, Picture This!, and more. Check it out and come laugh. You’ll be glad you did.

May 25th at 8pm it’s Set List: Stand-up Without A Net!


From the minds of Paul Provenza and Troy Conrad… Top comics are given a never-before-seen “set list” of strange and outrageous topics the second they walk onstage, and perform seamlessly as if its the act they normally do, while the audience follows their list on the projection screen. Complete comedy in the moment. May 25th’s show features the never-before-seen set lists of Jen KirkmanNate BargatzeJimmy DoreJohnny PembertonMoshe KasherBen Gleib, and special guests!

$8 in advance, $10 at the door.

May 26th 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. 


May 27th at 8pm it’s Nerdist Open Mic!

May 28th at 8pm it’s Star Dreck!

Star Dreck NerdMelt Showroom

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 Moshe Kasher, will they boldly go where no fan has gone before?

$8 in advance, $10 at the door.

May 31st at 8pm it’s Picture This!

Picture This! is a new show from Sam Varela, Brandie Posey, and Grif Kimmins: two girls & an animator who want to push the boundaries of what a comedy show can be.

Picture This! is a live comedy show with stand-ups performing while they are drawn live by some of the best animators, cartoonists, and other artists in Hollywood, CA. The comedians don’t know what the animators are drawing and the animators don’t know how the comedians will react. It may be weird. It may different. But it will be a unique comedy experience every time! After performing for a year in LA, New York, Toronto and Australia, Picture This! is now at the Nerdist Showroom — so, come see the show that everyone will be talking about!

May’s comedians include: Andy KindlerTodd GlassChris GarciaKatie CrownRye SilvermanLauren Ashley Bishop, and more.
