This Week at Nerdist Theater at Meltdown!

Hello everyone! It’s Friday, which means it’s time for you to get some knowledge kicked into your face about the amazing shows we have lined up for this week at NerdMelt.


Friday, June 3rd at 7pm, which is TONIGHT, we have an art show opening reception like no other. Here is My Art: A Yo Gabba Gabba Gallery Show features people like David Wain, Mark Mothersbaugh, Dylan Sprouse, Charlyne Yi and more showcasing Yo Gabba Gabba-inspired art- plus cocktails by Alie and Georgia!

This event is FREE, find out more details here!

Saturday, June 4th at 8pm, come see Battleship Pretension LIVE!

The Battleship Pretension returns to Meltdown for another night of hilarious stand-up comedy and sardonic movie discussion, seamlessly blended in such a way that your 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.  Guests include Kyle Kinane, Mike Schmidt, Josh Fadem, Susan Burke, and more!
Just $10; get your red hot tickets right here!


Sunday, June 5th at 7pm, it’s time for another installment of 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, and the magic that is live comedy.

This show is FREE and also very popular, so there are limited spots available — arrive on time!

  1. Battleship Pretension is always a hoot and a half. I’m so sad I missed them last week!

    Yo Gabba Gabba art? Sweet! If I lived in LA and had seen this before now, I would have gone. I bet it was awesome.
