Fun Times at Nerdist Theater!


The Meltdown continues its domination!

April 27th at 8pm - Set List: Stand-up Without A Net

From the minds of Paul Provenza and Troy Conrad...SET LIST: Stand-up Without a Net, 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 Kurt Braunohler, Matt Kirshen, Kira Soltanovich, Byron Bowers, Rory Scovel, and Carlos Alazraqui!

*Lineups subject to change. For updates, go to www.setlistshow.com

Online in advance or $10 at the door.

April 28th at 5pm - Nerdist Writer's Panel

The Nerdist Writers Panel series is an informal chat moderated by Ben Blacker (co-creator of The Thrilling Adventure Hour; writer for Supah Ninjas, Supernatural, among others) with professional writers about the process and business of writing. Covering TV, film, comic books, music, novels, and any other kind of writing about which you care to hear. April 28th guests will include: Greg Daniels (developer, The Office; creator, King of the Hill; co-creator, Parks and Recreation), Jessica Goldstein, and Chrissy Pietrosh (Cougar Town; My Name Is Earl).

The line-up is subject to change. And as always, proceeds from the live panels benefit 826LA, the national non-profit tutoring program.


April 28th 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 29th 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 30th at 8pm - 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 a special guest will they boldly go where no fan has gone before?

Online in advance or $10 at the door.
