Our weekly popular standup show, hosted by Jonah Ray and Kumail Nanjiani, hosts the best standups in the country as well as the amazing acts you haven’t heard of quite yet but should! Plus there’s original art each week, surprise drop-ins, and sometimes a puppy!

Thursday, August 16th at 8pm – Incubator
Sean Conroy and Kyle Kinane present THE INCUBATOR, a comedy showcase where seasoned comedians try out brand new material for the very first time. Kind of like an open mic but without all the uncomfortable silence, crickets and yawning.

$8 in , $10 at the door
Friday, August 17th at 9pm – 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: we gave the creator of Community a night to do whatever he wanted, and what we got was Harmontown.
Attend a town meeting in a land free of brevity, where Mayor Dan Harmon and Comptroller Jeff B. Davis (Whose Line is it Anyway) take another small, vodka-soaked step toward colonizing the moon. Evening may include ineffectual rants, songs, shameful stories, special guests (Allison Brie, Donald Glover, and Gillian Jacobs have all stopped in), forehead sweat and repeated exposure to the phrases “like” , “uh”, “sort of” and “you know.”
Sunday, August 19th at 5pm – Nerdist Writer’s Panel
THE NERDIST WRITERS PANEL series is an informal chat moderated by BEN BLACKER (co-creator of “The Thrilling Adventure Hour”; writer for Supah Ninjas, Supernatural, among others) with professional writers about the process and business of writing. Covering TV, film, comic books, music, novels, and any other kind of writing about which you care to hear.
On the afternoon of Sunday, August 19th, come down to The Nerdist Theatre at Meltdown Comics to catch the writers of KEY & PEELE discuss the process of making Comedy Central’s new hit sketch show.
The writers scheduled to appear are:
The line-up is subject to change. And as always, proceeds from the live panels benefit 826LA, the national non-profit tutoring program.
Sunday, August 19th 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, August 20th at 8pm – Harmontown
Yup, that’s right, it’s weekly! Attend a town meeting in a land free of brevity, where Mayor Dan Harmon (creator of Community) and Comptroller Jeff B. Davis (Whose Line is it Anyway) take another small, vodka-soaked step toward colonizing the moon. Evening may include ineffectual rants, songs, shameful stories, special guests (Allison Brie, Donald Glover, and Gillian Jacobs have all stopped in), forehead sweat and repeated exposure to the phrases “like” , “uh”, “sort of” and “you know.”
