Shout at the movies! We screen the worst films you’ve never seen, and invite YOU to roast them — the best one-liners of the night will win prizes. If you like MST3K and RiffTrax, this is your scene!

Your hosts for the evening, JOHN MATHOT (Disney’s Phineas & Ferb) and AARON H. BAKER (Nerdist, Booze Cruise!) will present 1989′s “Laser Mission”! An action-packed tale of espionage and intrigue starring Brandon Lee and Ernest Borgnine, which features desert fighting, incompetant KGB agents, and (spoiler) no lasers. Absolutely hilarious and awesome.

There’ll be comedy from HOWARD KREMER & BRANDON WARDELL, and also FREE POPCORN! Blast on down to the show!

Who knew Tuesdays could be so much fun! This Tuesday we have two incredible shows. First, at 7pm, it’s The Smartest Man in the World Proopcast and then at 9pm, it’s What’s New!

The Smartest Man in the World!

Greg Proops Smartest Man in the World Proopcast 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.

Tickets are available HERE.
