HI EVERYBODY! Danielle and Aaron from The NerdMelt Showroom here.

Kramer (1)AaronHBaker

We have been with the showroom for the last 3 ½ years and it’s one of the greatest things we’ve ever been a part of. The performers, the producers and the community have made this some of the best years of our lives. We’ve met so many amazing people here and have started long lasting friendships with some of the most talented and heart warming people.

We are formally announcing that we will be stepping down from running the showroom this week. It was a hard decision to make as NerdMelt is our baby and has our heart and soul in it. We have new projects we are moving on to and it’s just time to pass the torch so that the showroom can keep growing and continue being the best comedy venue in Los Angeles.

We’ll still be around a lot producing our own shows and consulting on showroom matters. So we aren’t disappearing! We don’t think we could if we tried.


We are so pleased to announce Hannah Crichton will be taking over care of the showroom as the Program Director and Nolan Fabricius as the Stage Manager. They have both been with us for the last few years, are wonderful and talented people, and both care very deeply for NerdMelt and its community. They will continue to keep the space thriving and making this your favorite place to see comedy and hang out with friends.


We have an amazing new website that is launching designed by a great friend of the showroom, Garrett Ross. There are tons of new things to check out including staff profiles, our history of album recordings, TV tapings, poster art, photography and more! Please browse around and discover new things about us you may not have known. The website also looks great on your phone. And you can purchase tickets from there too! Cool right?!?

Thank you all for an amazing time. We’ll see you around soon!


Danielle and Aaron

Greg Proops NerdMelt Showroom

It’s just Greg Proops and you. There’s no fan fare. Proops takes center stage at small table and chair setup with a single microphone. Then he’s off. An hour of great conversation that flies by at a break neck clip. He crams the feeling of a great two-way conversation into the lecture-style format of a one-way conversation.

Part professorial, part crazed comedian, Proops forms the show around his talent and passions. The show flows like a love letter to tangents. The Proopcast has been to Australia, New Zealand, Montreal, London, Edinburgh, Austin, Cleveland, San Francisco and off the coast of St. Martin in the Caribbean all in one year. Now you must fall.

Be there and experience joy for once in your life.

From the minds of Paul Provenza and Troy Conrad… SET LIST 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.

Featuring the never-before-seen set lists of
Emo Philips
Jay Larson
Dave Anthony
Randy Liedtke
Surprise Special Guests
Hosted by Troy Conrad

Can I Kick It

What’s better than watching ol’ school hip hop videos from the 80’s and 90’s on a projection screen? Watching it with comics that loved that era and love to laugh while looking back on hip-hop’s “awkward” phase.

Comedians: Al Jackson, Tone Bell, Joe Derosa and a rotating cast of comics will help you understand the meaning of “takin’ it back to the ol’ school” Can you kick it or not? Then get your Hammer pants and your rope chains and let’s go!

With special guest Neal Brennan.
