This Week at NerdMelt Showroom: Set List, Greg Daniels, Star Dreck, SketchMelt, and more!

NerdMelt Showroom

Hello fans of awesome things. This week at the NerdMelt Showroom at Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles promises to be another week of laughs, adventure, good friends, and great times with shows like Set List: Stand-Up Without a Net, Greg Daniels at Nerdist Writers Panel, Star Dreck, SketchMelt, and more!

April 27th at 8pm is Set List: Stand-Up Without A Net!

From the minds of Paul Provenza and Troy ConradSet 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. April 27’s show features the never-before-seen set lists of: Kurt BraunohlerMatt KirshenKira SoltanovichByron BowersRory Scovel, and Carlos Alazraqui!

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?
