This Week at NerdMelt Showroom: New Show-A-Palooza! Justin Willman, “SketchMelt,” “Comix and Comics”

NerdMelt Showroom

Welcome to December. Guys are shaving their mustaches, stores are already planning decorations for the 2013 holiday shopping season, and the NerdMelt Showroom is kicking the month off with some amazing brand-new shows, like Sleight Of Mouth with Justin Willman, the new sketch-comedy showcase SketchMelt, and the indie-mashup Comix and Comics!

Sunday at 7:00 is The Nerdist Open Mic!


Matt Mira of the Nerdist Podcast and Paul Cibis 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. Sign up at 7pm, lottery at 7:30!


Monday at 8:00 is 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.


Tuesday at 8:00 is Sleight Of Mouth with Justin Willman!


It’s a late night-style talk show, hosted by magician Justin Willman (Food Network’s Cupcake Wars, The Nerdist Channel), in the back of a comic book store. Enough said! Guests include BushwallaDan LevyKrystyn Lambert & more!

$8 in advance, $10 at the door.

Wednesday at 8:30 is The Meltdown With Jonah and Kumail!


The weekly popular standup show, hosted by Jonah Ray and Kumail Nanjiani, hosts the best standups in the country as well as amazing acts you haven’t heard of quite yet but should! Plus there’s original art each week, surprise drop-ins, and sometimes a puppy!

This week, catch Ron Funches, Kiran Deol, Dan Levy, Randy Liedtke, Jared Logan & Nick Thune!


Thursday at 8:00 is SketchMelt!


SketchMelt proudly presents the best of new live and video sketch comedy! Guaranteed to be totally sketch. Hosted by Brad Gage (Family Sandwich) and Christian Spicer (Weekend Confirmed, Double Jump)!

This debut show kicks off with the stellar sketch groups Good Neighbor, WOMEN, Dead Kevin, Birds of Prey, Soop and Santos, Brian Morrison, Dry Hump Comedy, and Awkward Kids!

$8 in advance, $10 at the door.

Friday at 7:00 is Comix and Comics!


Comix & Comics, a comically cartoonish convergence of stand-up comedians and sit-down cartoonists, invades NerdMelt Showroom! The line-up is a “WTFIT?”* of the LA indie comics and comedy scene with Naomi Grossman ( “Pepper” on American Horror Story), Atsuko Okatsuka (Star of Indie film hits Littlerock and Pearblossom Highway), Chase Bernstein (Riot Comedy Fest), David Ury (who was crushed by an ATM playing “Spooge” on Breaking Bad and recurs as “Easter Joe” in Raising Hope), and Keith Knight (2-time Literary Death Match Champ/MAD Magazine).

Come early for a 6pm booksigning in Meltdown Comics by Culver City Cartoonist Collective members Lonnie Millsap (I Stepped on a Duck), Keith Knight, and Ken Tanaka (Everybody Dies).

*Who The F*ck Is That?!?!
