NerdMelt Showroom

Is it normal to be sick of candy corn already? Don’t answer that. Do you have any candy corn you want to share with us? OK. Don’t answer that either. Want to go to some amazing shows this week and laugh and have tons of fun? Great! Come by the NerdMelt Showroom at Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles…there might even be some pre-Halloween candy corn…no promises on the candy corn though.

October 19th at 8:30pm it’s Booze Cruise!

All Hams On Deck! Come sail the high seas as a passenger on Booze Cruise! Ken Shultz (Brad Gage of Family Sandwich, SketchMelt, AFV XD) hosts the ship’s comedy variety show hour featuring an eclectic drunken meld of stand-up, sketch, music and more!

This month join Jonah Ray, Howard Kremer, Matt Bennett, Whitmer Thomas and more as they head through the depths of the antarctic tundra in search of their lost cabana boy, who may have been body-snatched by “The Thing”…

October 20th 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.
