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, brush up on the Leonard Maltin Game for Doug Loves Movies!

Comedian Doug Benson invites some of his fancy comedy friends to sit down and discuss his first love – movies! He also makes them play games they might not understand. 85 minutes of fun crammed into 90 minutes!

$10!

Tuesday at 8:00, boldly go to Star Dreck!

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 Todd Glass and Tom Lennon, will they boldly go where no fan has gone before?

$8 in advance, $10 at door!

Wednesday at 8:30 is another edition of The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail!

Another Wednesday, another Meltdown jam-packed with excitement! This week, Jonah and Kumail welcome Brendon Walsh, Dave Child, Ali Wong, Jesse Case, and Matt Kirshen! Plus we say a fond farewell to our favorite summer fling, Anthony Jeselnik! We’ll always remember our magical summer with you, under the Boardwalk…

$8!

Thursday at 8:00, be vindicated at 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.  RISK! Live in LA is hosted by comedians Kumail Nanjiani and Pete Holmes.

June’s topic, “Vindication”, will be touched upon these great storytellers: Sarah Walker (McSweeney’s/”Drunk Girl/High Guy”), Carlos Kotkin (author, “Please God Let It Be Herpes”), Kevin Broberg (“Quote Unquote”), Beowulf Jones (Risk! producer, MyDamnChannel.com), and  Andrea Rosen (UCB Theatre, Variety Shack)!

$8 in advance, $10 at door!
