Thursday, June 28th at 8pm – RISK!

RISK! is the show where people tell true stories they never thought they’d dare to share in public– stories they’d normally only tell to close friends. At the RISK! Live shows, the brightest stars of TV, film and literature drop their usual act and show a side of themselves you’ve never seen before.

RISK! Live in LA is hosted by comedians Kumail Nanjiani and Pete Holmes.

June’s topic, “Vindication,” will be touched upon these great storytellers:

Sarah Walker (“McSweeney’s”/”Drunk Girl/High Guy”)

Carlos Kotkin (author “Please God Let It Be Herpes”)

Kevin Broberg (“Quote Unquote”)

Beowulf Jones (“Risk!” producer, MyDamnChannel.com)

Saturday, June 30th at 8pm – Joke Machine

Back by popular demand, LA’s original roast-meets-gameshow juggernaut returns to Meltdown Comics. Three comics battle in the Joke Machine performing new material on an assigned topic, entering a wildcard challenge to do anything from crowd work to reviewing a movie, and gaining bonus points for relentless slamming– all in under a minute!

Hosted by the dangerously unbalanced Bil Dwyer, featuring a changing cast of LA’s best and brightest.

Sunday, July 1st at 7pm – 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 are frequent drop ins), and the magic that is live comedy.

Monday, July 2nd at 8pm – Horrible Movie Night

It’s movie riffing DIY-style! We scour the bottom of the VHS barrel to find the worst movies you’ve never seen, and invite YOU to help us make fun of them. Come up with the best one-liners of the night, and you could win a prize! Your hosts, John Mathot (Disney’s Phineas & Ferb), Susan Wright (The Because Show podcast), and improv troupe The Omelettes will present a disastrously bad Bo Derek movie (is that redundant?) called Ghosts Can’t Do It. If you dig MST3K and RiffTrax, HMN is for you!
