This Week at NerdMelt Theater!

Sex and music and magic oh my! It’s a big December week here at NerdMelt, with lots of things for you to do. So let’s do it!


Today we have two shows! At 7:30pm, it’s Sex Nerd Sandra!

This month’s topic: Female Seduction Techniques Wanna hit on that cute nerdboy at Meltdown but don’t want to come off as desperate or needy? We’re talking verbal & non-verbal flirt techniques especially for the hetero lady folk out there. But don’t worry, there’s always something for everyone! Come learn or be practiced on!

“Sex Nerd” Sandra Daugherty is the lead sex educator at Pleasure Chest LA and has been teaching sex and intimacy skill workshops for over two years, helping thousands of people improve their sex lives. Her Nerdist podcast is a wild runaway hit, and you can see her LIVE as she brings her skills to the back of a comic book store! Come and see the woman who brought you “The Crab Hand of Doom” & “The Clittiest Part of the Man-Clit” live and in person as she geeks out on the finer points of orgasming your life and answers your most intimate questions. Panel followed by audience Q&A.

$8 in advance, $10 at the door

Then at 9pm, it’s Harmontown!

People always ask us “What is Harmontown?”, and that’s a tough question to answer, but here’s the closest thing we’ve got: The countdown continues due to overwhelming demand: Attend a town meeting in a land free of brevity, where Mayor Dan Harmon (creator of NBC’s Community) and Comptroller Jeff B. Davis (Whose Line is it Anyway) take another small, drunken step toward colonizing the moon. Evening may include ineffectual rants, songs, shameful stories, special guests, forehead sweat and repeated exposure to the phrases “like” , “uh”, “sort of” and “you know.”. Join us for the final Harmontown of 2011!


Saturday at 8pm, it’s Loud Noises: A Nerdist Music Night!

This December we bring you the premiere of LOUD NOISES! A fanciful night of comedy and music brought to you by The NerdMelt Theater, and Nerdist music director and blogger, Becca Gleason.

Hosted by Community‘s beloved writer’s PA, Howie Kremer, this month’s LOUD NOISES presents the musical stylings of Army Navy and Newchild! As well as the vivacious comedy of Brandon Vaughn and Nerdist’s own Matt Mira!

So stop stressing about choosing between music and comedy, because LOUD NOISES! has plenty of both.
