This Week at NerdMelt Showroom: Stonecutters, Tippy Toe Variety Show, Howard Kremer, and more!

NerdMelt Showroom

As everyone knows April is regarded as the funniest month of the year, the month with the most laughs possible, and the month where laughter is required by law.* Good thing the NerdMelt Showroom at Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles has the laughs covered with the debuts of Stonecutters LA, The Tippy Toe Variety Show, Baby Talk with Dan Levy, and other great shows like Howard Kremer’s album recording!

*to our knowledge none of things about April are actually true.

April 6th at 4pm, it’s Stonecutters L.A.!

Fans of The Simpsons, come on down to The NerdMelt Showroom every first Saturday of the month to answer two rounds of trivia questions with your fellow Springfield residents for a chance to win some sort of prize — which may be edible or inedible! Expect special guests to drop in and screenings of everyone favorite episodes! This month’s show features Matt Selman (Executive Producer of The Simpsons). Hosted by NerdMelt’s own Mo Fathelbab and John Ungaro.


April 7th at 7pm it’s Nerdist Open Mic!

Come watch Matt Mira 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.


April 8th 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.
