The Nerdist Showroom at Meltdown Comics   7522 Sunset Blvd   Los Angeles, CA 90046

The show that makes you laugh and cry, but not necessarily in that in that order – – is BACK!  Comedy festival new talent to watch favorites, Matt Lieb (Viceland / AJ+) & Jason Webb (Amazon Comedy) host this hilarious (and believe-it-or-not) uplifting train wreck.  Basically, the show goes like this:  We play one of the most emotionally charged videos trending on the web AND THEN BEFORE THE AUDIENCE TEARS HAVE DRIED – one of LA’s best comics comes out to turn those frowns upside down – in 8 minutes or less.

Each month, this show gets tougher to get through without comics going through our box of “talent tissues.”  This time around, we made it really tough on our producers – because this talent lineup is tough as nails.  Will the comics find our videos a challenge to follow or will they laugh off the videos and make our producers cry?  Find out Tuesday, July 11th at 9pm.  Book now, it sells out.

LINEUP:
Adam Ray (MADTV, @Midnight, Heat)
Jay Larson (Crabfeast podcast, Conan)
Laura House (VICE and “Austin Stories” & Writer for CBS series, Mom)
Joe Sib (Gotham, DASH radio host & Complete Control host on 98.7)
Jolene Lunzer (BET, the Real, FOX)
*Please note that Michael Kosta will not be on this episode due to a schedule conflict.  However, an amazing alternate will be announced shortly.
