The interns of The Nerdist Showroom at Meltdown Comics present a cavalcade of comedy featuring sketches and stand up performances that celebrate all the things that have to do with the Fifth of May on the Fourth of May. It sounds kind of confusing, which is why FREE BEER will be served!

Come join Cossbysweater as they celebrate the release of their brand new musical comedy album! With special guests: Alyssandra NightwongerRainman, and Karen Kilgraff!


May 5th at 8pm it’s 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.


May 6th at 8pm it’s Nerdist Open Mic!
