NerdMelt Showroom

There are some fun and brand new shows going down at the NerdMelt Showroom at Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles this week, like the test-show debut of Chris Hardwick’s @Midnight and Stroke of Genius, along with a special one-night-only A Night with Nathan Rabin. It’s going to be a good week with some great laughs. We look forward to seeing you there!

June 22nd at 9pm it’s Booze Cruise!

Booze Cruise NerdMelt Showrom

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, Andy Dick, Melissa Villasenor, Ahmed Bharoocha, musical guests and more as they take you on an island adventure for a Weekend at Bernice’s (Bernie’s twin sister). Written and Produced by NerdMelt’s own Aaron Baker, Brad Gage, Eric Lombart, and Drew Spears with Danielle N. Kramer.


June 23rd 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.


June 24th at 8pm it’s Nerdist Open Mic!

nerdmeltopenmic NerdMelt Showroom

Come watch Matt Mira and Kyle Clark host this comedy free-for-all. You’ll see brand new comics, comics you know and love trying out new material (Chris Hardwick and Kumail Nanjiani are frequent drop ins), and the magic that is live comedy.


June 25th at 7pm 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 a special guest will they boldly go where no fan has gone before?

$6 in advance, $8 at the door.

June 25th at 9pm it’s @Midnight!

Chris Hardwick, Thomas Lennon, Robert Ben Garant and Funny or Die join forces to host a rapid-fire game show inspired by the darkest recesses of social media. Electronic RSVPs are no longer available, but there will be spots available at the door to get in to this free event. We will fill the house, first come first serve!


June 26th at 8:30pm it’s The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail!

Meltdown NerdMelt Showroom

Jonah Ray and Kumail Nanjiani helm the good ship Meltdown every single Wednesday, to host the show that’s been named one of the best live shows in LA by LA Weekly, Splitsider, and more. At The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail, you’ll see some of the biggest comics, up and coming acts just before they get famous, and as always, surprise drop-ins that will knock your socks off. June 26, catch: Brendon Small, Jim Tews, Myq Kaplan, Jenny Slate…and a special guest or two….


June 27th at 7pm it’s A Night with Nathan Rabin!

Nathan Rabin NerdMelt Showroom

Nathan Rabin (The A.V. Club) and NerdMelt celebrate the release of Nathan’s 4th book You Don’t Know Me But You Don’t Like Me (Phish, Insane Clown Posse, And My Misadventures With Two Of Music’s Most Maligned Tribes) in a 1-Night-Only Shindig Extravaganza.

The evening will include: Nathan Rabin Book Reading, Nathan Rabin Book Signing, DC Pierson interviewing Nathan, followed by Q&A, Kurt Braunohler hosting, a special performance by Dan Telfer, and maybe Surprise Secret Guests?!?

$8 in advance, $10 at the door.

June 27th at 9pm it’s RISK! Storytelling Show!

RISK! is the show where people tell true stories they never thought they’d dare to share in public. Stories they’d normally only tell to close friends. At the RISK! Live shows, the brightest stars of TV, film and literature drop their usual act and show a side of themselves you’ve never seen before. June 27, catch: Mather Zickel, Nathan Rabin, Cameron Esposito & Moshe Kasher! Hosted by Kumail Nanjiani.

$8 in advance, $10 at the door.

June 28th at 9pm it’s Stroke of Genius!

What happens when Mystery Science Theater 3000 meets YouPorn? You get Stroke of Genius.

Stroke of Genius is an adults-only live show and videocast that celebrates the dark, soggy, often traveled yet rarely dissected lane of the information superhighway…FREE PORN SITES!

On each episode, Kevin Pereira (Attack of the Show, Pointless), Zack Pearlman (MTV’s The Inbetweeners, Community) and one celebrity guest sit before a live audience and launch tab upon tab of free pornography websites. With help from the audience, they then dissect the thumbnails, clip titles, creepy comments and absurd web-ads splattered all over the pages. The idea isn’t to watch porn as a group, but to hilariously dissect moments of porn… as a group.

** This show is age restricted – 18 and over **

$8 in advance, $10 at the door.

Thank you all so much for your continued support of the showroom. Follow us on Twitter and track us on our blog for more info about any of these shows!
