This Week at NerdMelt Showroom: Set List, Caper, Jay Larson, and More!

NerdMelt Showroom

Want to laugh? Want to laugh a lot? Live in or visiting Los Angeles this week? PERFECT, because the NerdMelt Showroom at Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles has one heck of a week planned. Tell your friends (but not your enemies; who likes enemies anyway?) and get your laugh on at shows like Set List, An Evening with Jay Larson, The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail, The Tinkle Twins, and more!

January 25th at 8pm it’s Set List: Standup Without a Net!


From the minds of Paul Provenza and Troy ConradSet List is back from sold-out shows at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Montreal Just For Laughs Festival, and a regular run in London. Top comics are given a never-before-seen “setlist”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.

Featuring the never-before-seen set lists of Eddie PepitoneJohnny PembertonJackie KashianChristian SpicerKira SoltanovichEric Lampaert, and Zach Sherwin!

$8 in advance, $10 at the door.

January 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 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. Subscribe to Harmontown on iTunes today!
