Asperger’s Are Us, the first comedy troupe consisting of openly autistic people, is coming to NerdMelt for a sketch show you won’t forget! Featuring Jake Hanke, New Michael Ingemi, Noah Britton, and Ethan Finlan.

Read about them in the New York Times!

“Asperger’s Are Us is funny. More than funny: Hilarious. That has to be mentioned first, because it can sometimes be obscured by the fact that the four-man sketch troupe… is… ‘the first comedy troupe consisting of openly autistic people.’
[Their sketches] often consist of precisely worded, dark, observational comedy balanced with absurd humor. Even when there is no mention of Asperger’s, sketches often play off the affectlessness associated with their diagnosis, mixing up objects and people in bizarre combinations. It’s smart, weird, deadpan humor at its best.” -CultureMap Austin

“I found myself laughing hard because they have a great sense of comedic timing, sometimes a little deadpan, sometimes a little punny, their style of humor is a little different across the troupe members which was great…
“I think this is one of the best documentaries I’ve seen in a long time. It was fantastic from the beginning to the end”
-GeekScholars review of Duplass Brothers Productions’ forthcoming documentary Asperger’s Are Us

Check out Asperger’s Are Us on their website, Facebook, and YouTube.

This show is appropriate for anyone who has started puberty

The Cooties are a Comedy-Music trio featuring Ethan Edenburg, Eric Jackowitz, & Jacob Jeffries. They recently wrapped up a pilot for JASH called “Dad Friends” (also featuring Reggie Watts, Todd Glass and Ron Lynch). Their unique live blend of song and sketch makes for a show critics are calling “I’ve been meaning to check it out, but haven’t yet.”

The Cooties Boomtime Rockblock is a concert featuring lush three-part harmonies and addicting grooves/melodies with ridiculous lyrical content. Influenced by Flight of the Conchords, Tenacious D, The Mighty Boosh, and Stella, The Cooties always deliver a unique and ultra-fun live show!

Sara Schaefer
Solomon Georgio
Anna Akana & Brad Gage

Great Scott! It’s Retro Rad!
Join Kyle Clark (The Nerdist and This Is Rad! podcasts) as he shares his infinite pop culture knowledge of the ’80s and ’90s with co-host Caitlin Durante  (Laughs, Luck of the Draw), who grew up without cable and watched, like, no television as a kid. Together they invite guests to review obscure cartoons and commercials from Kyle’s curated collection of all things Retro Rad and match wits with Kyle’s useless trivia. It’s like if MST3K andWin Ben Stein’s Money had a Muppet Baby.

This month we’re firing up our flux capacitors, accelerating to 88 miles per hour, and traveling back to the ’90s to screen the CBS animated series Back to the Future. Plus, we investigate bizarre board game commercials you definitely don’t remember…and Retro Rad trivia!

With guests Dan Telfer & Matthew Broussard!

Come join us as we make fun of the TV junk from your childhood!
