This Week at Nerdist Theater at Meltdown

Hi everyone! We’re chock full of fun events coming up this week! You can always check us out at, but in the meantime, let’s dig in!


Today at 8pm we have Keith Apicary’s Apicarnage!

Keith Apicary performs his chiptune songs about the greatest video games to ever live and tells your uncle’s jokes. Seeing Keith Apicary live is like watching a one person riot, and he’ll be appearing with the chiptune bands 8 Bit Weapon, ComputeHer and Wizwars.
Keith Apicary is the star of the hugely popular mockumentary series Talking Classics on He has been forcibly removed from Comic-Con, E3, and PAX.

$8 in advance, $10 day of show

On Saturday, September 3rd at 8pm, we have Battleship Pretension!


The podcast Battleship Pretension returns to NerdMelt for another night of hilarious stand-up comedy and sardonic movie discussion, seamlessly blended in such a way that your beer-addled mind won’t be able to tell the difference. Tyler and David, hosts of the weekly Battleship Pretension podcast, invite some of their friends, among Los Angeles’ funniest comedians, to tell jokes, talk movies and most likely make fun of the hosts a bit. Featuring Laraine Newman, Bil Dwyer, Paul Goebel, and Bennie Arthur!

Tickets are $8 in advance, $10 day of show.

On Sunday, September 4th at 7pm, it’s 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 have both dropped in), and the magic that is live comedy.



Tuesday, September 6th at 7pm (screening at 7, podcast at 8) is The Nerdist Podcast LIVE with The Guild….
