In this interview-style, live talk show, host Lyssa Mandel (& co-host/boyfriend Phil Casale) invites guests to present poignant/painful creations from their adolescence on stage (poetry, drawings, songs, sketches, videos…Wicca boxes…) and follows with engaging questions that cut to the heart of how all our teenage pain is the same. And it’s funny. Think of it as Judy Blume meets Dr. Phil. Raucous laughter and redemption ensue.

Featuring the adolescent treasures of:
ZACH SHERWIN (Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell)
MYQ KAPLAN (Letterman, Conan)
LIZ GLAZER (#DearLizGlazer)
RAMIN NAZER (Rainbow Brainskull, Craig Ferguson)

From Paul Provenza and Troy Conrad…  Set List: Stand-Up Without A Net is a TV series in the UK and Australia, as well as a sold-out hit at festivals worldwide, including Edinburgh, Melbourne, SXSW, New York, Montreal, Ireland, Austria, and more.

Both the comic and the audience see the topics for the first time on a projection screen and the fun begins.

A regular NerdMelt staple, Set List is also a 60-episode web series on the Nerdist Channel on YouTube. Set List is on Twitter: @SETLISTSHOW

Comedians & “Cry-worthy” videos collide on one stage!

Join Nikki Glaser, Howard Kremer, Chris Fairbanks, Nicole Byer, and Jon Huck as they watch tear-jerking web videos with you and then try to FOLLOW THAT!

Hosts Matt Lieb (Viceland, The Star Wars Show) & Jason Webb (Amazon Comedy) host and serve up emotionally manipulative videos like “Soldier Surprise” or “Thai Insurance Commercial.” Immediately after each heart-wrenching video, (and just when none of us can look each other directly in the eye) the comics are called on stage to FOLLOW THAT! You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, but probably not in that order.

With Guests:
Nikki Glaser (Not SafeKimmelFallon@Midnight)
Jon Huck (This is Not HappeningSuperstore)
Nicole Byer (ConanLoosely Exactly Nicole, Girl Code)
Chris Fairbanks (Almost Genius, Conan, World’s Dumbest)
