This Week at Nerdist Theater at Meltdown!

How gorgeous is the new site? It looks like if a spaceship was a website! Huge applause all the way around!

Anyway, down to business. We have a fun week at NerdMelt this week, with a couple of days off this weekend so that you may go out and party stupidly and responsibly for Halloween… so let’s skip to Sunday, when you’re still trying to scrub the green paint off of your face.

Sunday at 5:30pm (rather than the regular time of 5pm) is the Nerdist Writer’s Panel!

Spend your Sunday afternoons learning from the best at the Nerdist Writers Panel! Join moderator Ben Blacker as he hosts esteemed panelists discussing topics like different types of writing, how they got started, what inspires them, the business side of writing, and more. Panelists will also answer your questions and give some helpful tips and tricks! This series is a must for any hopeful writer in LA, with a portion of the proceeds going to benefit 826LA.

Scheduled to appear:
Tom Lennon (Night at the Museum)
Seth Grahame-Smith (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter; Dark Shadows)




Then Sunday at 7pm 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 have both dropped in), and the magic that is live comedy.



Monday at 8pm, it’s Nerdy Secrets!

Ever wanted to know what makes your favorite creative types secretly nerdy, but were too timid to ask? Sure you did! and The Nerdist Theatre at Meltdown Comics have come together to take that burden off your shoulders with our very own chat show-– NERDY SECRETS, hosted by Mo Fathelbab and Dominic Dierkes.

The October show take place on Halloween night at 8pm, and it will feature a spooky lineup of guests that will scare the bejesus out of you:
-The return of geektastic adult film star and avid gamer MISTI DAWN!
-MATT BURNSIDE (Nerdist blogger)
-ARIA ASPEN (Adult Film Star)

$8 in advance, $10 at the door!

Wednesday at 8:30pm, it’s The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail!

On this week’s show, hosted as always by Jonah Ray and Kumail Nanjiani, we welcome Jen Kirkman, David Angelo, Dominic Dierkes, Ryan Belleville, Margaret Cho, and more!



Finally, on Thursday, we have a Geek Girls Unite Book Release Celebration!

Author Leslie Simon has written a book called Geek Girls Unite, and so it’s time to celebrate with a parade of all of our favorite geeky ladies. Join us for a comedy show with lady writers, lady impressionists, lady dorks, and more, followed by a signing with Leslie! Featuring Ali Wong, Jackie Kashian, a drink demonstration from Alie & Georgia, Megan Ganz, Melissa Villasenor, and Maria Bamford!

$8 in advance, $10 day of show!

As always, check us out on our blog (lots of fun reviews and silly stuff) and on Twitter!
