Tomorrow — April 2nd — marks 2 years since we, The Nerdist Showroom at Meltdown Comics, opened our doors to L.A.-area comedy fans!
Now, we wouldn’t have been able to hit the 2 year mark without the guidance of our fearless leader Chris Hardwick and everyone at Nerdist Industries — from Jonah Ray and Matt Mira to General Manager Chris Fealy to podcast producer Katie Levine to the head of The Nerdist Channel Seth Laderman to CEO Peter Levin. We also couldn’t have done it without Emily Gordon, who helped get the ball rolling on this whole comedy venue thing. And of course, we should heap praise on Gaston Dominguez-Letelier, Hisami Dominguez-Letelier, Francisco Dominguez and everyone at Meltdown Comics for welcoming us like members of their own family. Frankly, there is no other place in Los Angeles that has so much nerd culture coursing through its veins like Meltdown.
We also need to give a BIG THANK YOU to the past and present interns, our former PR Czar Drew Spears, our current PR Czar Christian Spicer; our tech staff Zac McKeever (Supervisor), Kyle Clark, Ed Salzar & Beowulf Jones; house managers Matt Burnside & Aaron Baker; and my co-hort and Program Dir. Danielle Kramer – all of whom have all given up their time for little to no pay to make The Nerdist Showroom at Meltdown Comics a force to be reckoned with in the L.A. comedy scene. May they all be rewarded with success beyond their wildest imaginations.
And we most especially thank you, the patrons who believe in the venue and frequent our shows when you can. You are all awesome!
We hope the next few years are just as fruitful as the last two and we hope you have all enjoyed the endeavors of The Nerdist Showroom at Meltdown Comics as much as we have. Keep your eyes and ears open for more amazingness that’ll be coming to (or out of) NerdMelt. And don’t forget to check upcoming shows via nerdmeltla.com.
