This Week at NerdMelt Theater!

It’s June, which means we’re officially in the throws of the Summer Blockbuster Season. Who’s counting down the days to the release of Channing Tatum’s Magic Mike? Just us? Well we have a blockbuster lineup this week over at NerdMelt theater too!

Saturday at 8:00 pay witness to Horrible Movie Night!

It’s movie riffing DIY-style! We scour the bottom of the VHS barrel to find the worst movies you’ve never seen, and invite YOU to help us make fun of them. Come up with the best one-liners of the night, and you could win a prize! Your hosts, John Mathot (Disney’s Phineas & Ferb), Susan Wright (The Because Show podcast), and improv troupe The Omelettes will present 1988’s horrifying wonderful Demonwarp, featuring Bigfoots, zombies, and aliens (oh my!). If you dig MST3K and RiffTrax, HMN is for you!

$8 in advance, $10 at the door!

Sunday at 7:00 is Matt Mira’s Day Off!

Matt Mira of the Nerdist Podcast needs a Day Off, so we decided to give him Sundays at Nerdist Theater. Come watch 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.

Free!

Monday at 8:00 is The Grawlix!

The Grawlix is the comedy collective of  Ben Roy, Adam Cayton-Holland, and Andrew Orvedahl. Their monthly show, which consists of stand-up, live sketches and videos, has been lauded by the Denver Post as “Easily the best, most inventive stand-up night in a town brimming with them.” Recently the trio launched The Grawlix web series, which chronicles the fictional behind-the-scenes of the live show. The Grawlix is taking their show on the road in 2012; catch them if you can! With T.J. Miller, Rory Scovel, and Troy Walker!

Free!

Tuesday at 8:00 is the next edition of Justin Willman’s Magic Meltdown!

Join Justin Willman (Food Network’s Cupcake Wars) as he and his friends present a cataclysmic evening of prestidigitation, make-believe, and excessive sleight-of-mouth. You’ll spend the entire time wondering “how’d they do that?” and gasping at the wonders of…. MAGIC! Featuring magician Danny Cole, comedy duo David and Leeman, comedian Michael Kosta, and more!

$8 in advance, $10 at the door!

Wednesday at 8:30 trot down to The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail!

This week, Kumail “The Body” Nanjiani and Jonah “The Mind” Ray welcome Erik Charles Nielsen, Ian Karmel, Dave Ross, Johnny Pemberton, Adam Cayton-Holland and music from The Doubleclicks!

$8!

Thursday at 8:00 learn something new at Schmed Talks!

Each month, beginning in June 2012 at LA’s Nerdist Theater, the world’s leading thinkers and doers will gather for an event many will no doubt describe as the highlight of their year.
