March 30th at Noon - BBC Classic Doctor Who Screening
Whovians! Grab your sonic screwdriver and slap on your bow ties as BBC Home Entertainment and Nerdist present the Classic Doctor Who Screening Series. Each month, come by and watch a different full adventure of everybody’s favorite Time Lord from the first 26 years of the show’s history. Trivia and costume contests will also be happening with tons of great Doctor Who prizes. It’ll be a TARDIS-ful of fun. Hosted by Nerdist.com’s own Who Guru, Kyle Anderson.
March 30th join us for DOCTOR WHO: THE ARK IN SPACE: The TARDIS lands on a space station orbiting the earth in the distant future. It’s seemingly deserted, but the Doctor (Fourth Doctor – Tom Baker), Sarah Jane, and Harry soon discover that they are not alone. Thousands of humans – the only survivors of the human race - are in cryogenic sleep, and while they’ve slept their ark has been invaded. A parasitic insect race – the Wirrn – have taken control and threaten the very future of mankind.
March 30th at 7pm and 9pm - Set List Live Taping!
Join us for a very special Nerdist Channel taping of Set List! That's right, Set List is coming to Nerdist Channel for 20 episodes of comedy greatness without a net. See it at NerdMelt first by being a part of the moment at this LIVE taping!
From the minds of Paul Provenza and Troy Conrad…SET 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.
The 7pm Set List features Hampton Yount, The Sklar Brothers, Eddie Pepitone, Rory Scovel, Moshe Kasher, Drew Carey, Cameron Esposito and Special Guests. Hosted by Paul Provenza.
$8 in advance, $10 at the door.
The 9pm Set List features Rick Overton, TJ Miller, Jon Daly, Joey Diaz, Dan Telfer, Johnny Pemberton, Reggie Watts, Fortune Feimster and Special Guests. Hosted by Paul Provenza.
$8 in advance, $10 at the door.
March 31st at 7pm - 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 1st at 8pm - 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.
April 2nd at 2pm - The Crawford Family Forum presents Comics, DIY, and the L.A. Effect

Featuring guests: comic writer Sam Humphries (Uncanny X-Force, The Ultimates [Marvel Comics]), Sacrifice and Our Love Is Real), cartoonist and comics writer Hope Larson (Salamander Dream, A Wrinkle in Time, and Who Is AC?), Jim Higgins (Meltdown University's founding director/principal instructor, a CalArts and Otis College of Art and Design instructor, and editor/publisher of New Thing, DC Comics editor).
