Kevin McDonald and some of his sexy friends will do a reading of a spec pilot script, Kevin has just written called ‘The Sitcom’.

If this sounds boring – remember some of his friends doing the reading are sexy. So that will help the half hour go by quicker. Some of them might even be famous. We don’t want to give anything away but a certain President of the United States – who’s last name begins with O – might be reading the part of ‘Steven the accountant’. Also there might be a Kid in the Hall or two- though Kevin has never met any Kids in the hall, he hears that they are not very busy and like reading in front of people.

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
